1999 Daewoo Matiz SE from India
A good car from a bad company
The body of the car gets rusted in less than an year. This complaint is reported by a large number of customers. The rusting starts from the door and spreads across. The metal parts are eaten away and affect the looks of the car, and of course the performance and safety.
The general performance of the car is good.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I also have the same problem with the rust. It starts from the edge of windows of the 4 doors and than cross all around the doors. But very strangely, the steel of roof never rust. It never rust from the edge of the sunroof or other part of the roof.
I think the steel material and quality are different from the 4 doors and the roof. I wonder that the steel of the 4 doors are "RECYCLED STEELS FROM ABOLISHED SHIPS".
As you may know, the biggest "Dismantle Ship Industry" is in Korea. It is to dismantle the steels of the old ships and recycle the steels. So, where the recycled steel is? Matiz's doors!!!
