My Kalos is a 54 plate 1.4. Nice car and cute looking. Worthless and very hard to sell on, so brought a low mileage car hoping to keep for good few years.
Not over happy with it. Every one says the interior is poor, I'm an ex car sales executive and the interior is good! A lot better than some... but its suspension is always creaking when I go round a corner and the ABS light has been on 3 times.
2 sensors have gone, and now the cog near the CV boot is cracked causing horrible braking feeling. Not confident that nothing else won't go wrong either!
All these problems on a 17000 mile car. Like the car, but because of poor dealers and hard to get bits, I wouldn't buy another.
Hi, I have a Kalos 1.4 (04 reg) and my airbag light is on as already reported above. A friend of mine has the same problem with her Lanos. Running the electronic test cost her ca £70 and it was worthless as they couldn't find a solution.
In addition, and this really scares me, I will have my discs and pads (front wheels) changed for the third time in 5 months! They are under warranty. I hear a rattle when braking softly while at higher speed, both the pedal and the stirring wheel shake badly. Noise and vibration only occurs on braking. I can't find a cause for both disks getting warped at the same time, and the only thing I can think of is a faulty set of pads/disks. But what's the chance of three consecutive faulty sets? Last one only lasted 3 weeks... Mechanics have mentioned the hub and caliper, but how can they simultaneously fail for both wheels?
I have a Daewoo Kalos 03. I have the same problem with the air bag light coming on, and also when I brake, there is a strange noise like a spring going in a mattress... A friend checked it on his computer.. but nothing came up for either!! Also had to change the brake pads and discs twice... had it 2 years!!
Fine by me.
Daewoo Kalos 14 16v sx 2004 model, has anyone had a problem with the cooling system over cooling?
I have had the thermostat changed and the fault persists, garage mechanic is scratching his head.
Temp when idling gets up to 88 deg, but when driven drops to 60 deg. The gauge also backs these readings up by showing the drop. Very baffling, any one help please?
Your ABS rings are broken; a bit expensive from main dealer. I repair them on a regular basis.
Change the ABS ring on the CV joint. I had the same problem, and this fixed it.
I bought a 2003 Daewoo Kalos last year. I have had to replace the front tyres three times, the brakes and discs twice, and my engine management light keeps coming on all the time after it has been checked, no faults showing, and reset again. Then after ten minutes it's back on again, and now it's losing power in fifth and fourth gear, and the engine sounds very rough and loud when driving at 60 and 70 mph. I'm fed up with this car, as it costs more and more to fix.
