2001 Daewoo Leganza SE 2.2L from North America


A luxurious bargain of a family sized sedan


The only thing that has gone wrong with the car is that the parking/hand brake did not work from the day I bought it. It was fixed under warranty, as the brakes were just not adjusted correctly.

General Comments:

The car is comfortable, quiet inside, and has all options I could ask for. The stereo system was excellent for stock and the CD player even works with CDR & CDRW discs. The steering is responsive and not overly sensitive. Acceleration is more than I expected from a car with an automatic transmission, as I am used to cars with a manual transmission. I liked the car so much, I bought a new 2002 Lanos to be used as my daily commuter back and forth between home, work and school.

A very relaxing, dependable, and comforting ride


So far I've had no problems, everything has been wonderful.

I only notice that the shifter sticks sometimes when putting the car into reverse.

General Comments:

I'm 20 and this is my second car.

My '87 Jetta died and I needed something reliable.

I'm a full time student and only work part time, I was stoked that I could afford a quality 2001 car!

More bang for your money


The only thing that has really gone wrong with the Leganza is the CD changer stopped working. I took it to the dealership, and it works great now.

I have noticed though that it is really horrible on gas. I don't know if it is because it is still too new, or what the deal is. I get only 12MPG in the city and 15MPG on the highway.

General Comments:

It's a great car for the money for all of the features that it offers.

The only reason I would not buy another Daewoo is because I am used to an SUV and I am not too crazy about a car. If I cared for cars, I would definitely get another one though.

Very comparable in my opinion to the Ford Taurus as far as the safety features go.

Just wondering why you put a frowning face on this one... you seem to give it a pretty favorable rating. Wife has one and the only problem we have had is the electrical system had a sensitive brake light.....

We are averaging 31 miles per gallon which is great for us -we drive 46 miles to work one way. Your gas mileage sure doesn't sound right.

The bad gas mileage is b/c the engine is still breaking in. Give it a few thousand more miles and it should improve. If not, try a better air filter, such as K&N.

Low priced and exceptional value


Trim around the windshield is not fitted correctly, repaired it myself.

General Comments:

This car is priced right for the type and quality of the vehicle.

Performance is comparable with all other cars I had test drove.

Ride and highway noise levels are better than any other car in price class that I test drove.
