1999 Daewoo Lanos 1.5 from Australia and New Zealand
Too many too name - from seals around the door breaking, plastic trim falling off and worst the fuel consumption - 13 litres per 100km, unbelievable for a 1.5 litre car. OK it's auto and we mostly do short trips with the air con running, but this is ridiculous.
The dealer initially stated that it was a problem, but after 10 services and Daewoo Australia taking the car for 3 weeks, they decided that 13 l/100km was normal!!!
We also had oil with the consistency of mud (normal again according to Daewoo) due to 17% petrol in the oil. Yes, we have the analysis from Mobil.
Seats are badly worn after 2 years. Plastic scratches easily.
I have very little if anything, positive to say about this lemon.
Utter rubbish. At $18000 Aus I did not expect a Rolls nor did I expect what we got.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
