1999 Daewoo Leganza CDX 2.2 DOHC 4 liter from North America

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

The Leganza was the best car I've ever driven. I previously have driven a Toyota Camry and Honda Accord and they don't compare with the Leganza. The car is very comfortable and fun to drive. The driver position is also very comfortable. The Leganza is truly an affordable luxury.

1999 Daewoo Leganza SX 2.0 16v petrol from UK and Ireland

Faults:

Nothing. The car has a 3yr 60k warranty so if anything was to go wrong it wouldn't be a problem. I would also get a loan car free.

General Comments:

I have been lucky to have driven most manufacturers cars around this size and the Leganza was definitely the best value. Compared to some other makes it doesn't have the prestige but in a couple of years it will be up there. What's in a badge anyway, only snobbery.

I don't care about badge snobbery either (always driven Fords and Vauxhalls), but the Leganza is a pile of crap. Poorly made, inherently unreliable mechanics and now to add insult to injury, no manufacturer support any more! I don't count the "official" Vauxhall dealer route as they have no interest in the cars, don't keep parts in stock, and you have to argue with them to do anything apart from a basic service.

The first 40,000 of the 100,000 miles I covered in one was fine. After that it became a catalogue of breakdowns, ongoing niggling faults, component failures and the nagging doubt every time I started a journey that I would make it to the other end.

The old adage "You only get what you pay for" was never more relevant to anything than it is to this vehicle. Junk!

1999 Daewoo Leganza CDX 2.2 Gasoline from North America

Faults:

The automatic transmission control computer malfunctioned, needed to be replaced.

Steering assembly replaced.

Sunroof related rattles in the headliner. (Minor problem)

General Comments:

I like the car, though I think Honda and Toyota have a little better build quality. The thing I love most about Daewoo is the dealer service! It is just like buying a Lexus, without the huge price! Oh, and the service, when you go to take your car in for any maintenance, they give you a loaner car and a wax and wash when you get the car back, and it was all free to begin with! Daewoo is great on service.
