1997 Daewoo Nexia GLi 1.5 petrol from UK and Ireland
A very underrated model
Although the car itself is very good the dealer service is incredible. The staff at Daewoo Belfast are fantastic.
The car although a "budget" model is great. Reliable, economical, reasonably well built and comfortable.
I can honestly say that I would be extememly reluctant to buy a car from any other manufacturer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Seems the dealer makes all the difference.
I had no problems with Daewoo until the Glasgow dealership turned to Arnold Clark, then it went to rubbish. Poor service, arguing every warranty point (still waiting to be paid £800 for a cylinder head, which they refused to do anything to help under warranty, and I had to pay to get the car back!)
Unfortunately Daewoo Edinburgh seem to be just as bad. Gear linkage fell off just after having clutch replaced, then the air filter fell off, as they hadn't put it back. And to cap it all, they failed to find the poor running cause, only for me to find they hadn't replaced the fuel filter, despite it being paid for. Oh, and they hadn't replaced the brakes, despite them being 80% worn, and I specifically asked them to.
I will never buy another Daewoo again, and neither should anyone else in Scotland.
