2000 Daewoo Lanos Sport 1.6016v from Australia and New Zealand
A reliable, get what you pay for little rocket, which came with great free care!
An 'o' ring failed between the coolant bottle and the radiator connection hose.
An exhaust resonator has been replaced at 18 months old.
Throttle body has become a little stiff on cold mornings.
I bought the car new in Nov 2000 and since that time have had bugger all go wrong.
I tow my yamaha wave runner and a box trailer, with ease.
The free service was brilliant, wish it was still going.
I have fitted an after market air filter called a pod, which increased performance slightly.
I then fitted iridium spark plugs and that is when the change really occurred.
The slight hesitation when initially accelerating, has now disappeared.
I have fitted performance bridgestone tires and handling has improved, especially in the wet.
So far the car has performed well.
It is now 3.5 years old and I plan to keep the car for a few years yet.
I suppose buying the vehicle from new and looking after it has paid off.
However, after saying that, to have some fun, I do enjoy pushing it round my area, as it is hilly with plenty of corners.
I am about to fit extractors and brace bars and then lower the suspension, just for the hell of it.
Anyway, I am one happy daewoo owner, cheers!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
