1999 Daewoo Matiz SD from India
Ultimate car safety and mileage
Nothing. I had a Matiz-SD model for 2000, which I used up to 165,000 Kms, but there was no problem, and it is one of the best cars I would like to own.
Last year I sold that and bought another second-hand Matiz model (1999), which was in good condition.
Just three days ago I met with an accident with a Maruti-Suzuki Alto, which dashed straight into the co-driver's side, but nobody was hurt. If I was in another car, it was sure to be a fatal accident, but the Daewoo MATIZ saved me.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

My Matiz has done 157k, and I have no mechanical problems with it; it's very cheap to run.
I really like the car. It's comfortable and easy to drive.
There's a few things that I don't like about it, which are the clutch system and the gear shifting (especially from 1st to 2nd).
It never lets me down. A car is a like the human body; if you don't look after it, it will stuff up itself.

Lucky it was a tinny Suzuki that hit you! Nothing substantial. I know the Matiz is economical - but I wouldn't call it safe! Look at the results on Euro NCAP safety ratings!
