2001 Daewoo Lanos S from North America
Not a good buy at all unless you buy it for really cheap and low mileage
Daewoo declared bankruptcy. I bought the car for $6,800, and two months later, the car's price dropped in the $2,000 range.
The brake pads and rotors needed to be replaced and all the parts had to be specially ordered for a lot more money. OK... spent more money on the parts, but then they didn't fit! My car has parts from all different kinds of Daewoos on it, so much that I can't tell which brake pads and rotors will fit.
The car is very dentable. It just takes a little tap by another car door for the car to be permanently scarred.
Thermostat under the hood is made of plastic and the heat made it melt.
While the air conditioning is on, the car accelerates very slowly and jumps a little.
Great on gas!
I call it my little speed racer!
Never have an engine problem.
Good on oil.
Perfect car for light to moderate driving.
Very easy handling.
Good cold air conditioning and hot heater.
It's roomier on the inside than it definitely looks!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
