Very reliable and actually fun to drive
My suspension was thrown out of alignment easily, my error.
Poor placement of cup-holder.
Interior and upholstery has a very cheap feeling.
No power windows or locks.
When I tried to have a copy of the key made, no hardware store had Daewoo blanks.
Steering column and frame shake upon reaching 65 mph (you can hear the doors and windows rattling).
Makes a very strange noise when I turn the steering wheel, like you can hear fluid.
Transmission has a noticeable jerky shift and the brakes squeal when it rains.
Great gas mileage, approximately 200 miles per tank (this car has a small tank).
Great smooth, fast start with a nice "throaty" engine sound if you like that sort of thing.
Takes turns like a dream, unbelievable handling. I can take a sharp right turn doing 40 mph under try conditions very easily.
Roomy cabin and trunk.
Can handle almost anything you can dish out. I ran my Lanos into a muddy ditch after trying to take a sharp right turn doing 60 mph, and I hauled out of there pretty easily considering I do not have 4-wheel drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
