2003 Daewoo Matiz SE .8 petrol from Thailand
Engine vibrates strongly, take the car to service dealer, they said something is wrong with the spark plug, only six months from date of purchase.
Engine oil drain plug gasket leaking after to times change oil, need to add teflon tape!!!
Oil of suspension leaking, after 1 year in use. Not yet fixed.
Suspension working very bad, car jumped up and lost control on the bad road.
Car body very thin, easy to deform.
Steering wheel very heavy compare to the size of small car.
Only good looking for women.
Very bad overall quality, like a cartoon car.
Happy with replacement: Toyota Vios
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

All those who think that Daewoo cars are poorly made, well you need to change your views regarding Daewoo cars. Well I have a couple of friends who own Daewoo cars; all my friends are really happy with their Daewoos.
I personally own a Daewoo Matiz (first owner). It's been 9 years and my Daewoo hasn't betrayed me ever. It always starts in one blow. Well daewoo was the best company I've ever come across.

The heavy steering is actually not a problem, it's the manufacturer's settings for better stability and feel at high speed, but the consequence is when you park it because the steer is heavy. You can set the steer mass though, make it lighter if you want to. So it doesn't have anything to do with the size.

Daewoos are really like that poor quality with poor support from the manufacturer.
