1999 Daewoo Nubira CDX 2.1 liter from North America
Affordable, solid and reliable vehicle
A valve gasket deteriorated in 3/04 at 38,000 miles and was replaced under warranty.
The exterior panels (but not front or rear bumpers) seem to dent easily, however even larger dings are reasonably cheap to have repaired.
Small plastic parts such as a ring around the buttons to put the rear seats down have popped out. Same with plastic bolt covers over where the front seat belts are bolted to the floor.
I am extremely pleased with my little hatchback and don't understand why other reviewers have had such a bad experience. I know other Daewoo owners with positive experiences like mine.
The Nubira hatchback has been a "no worries" reliable vehicle that handles great in all weather conditions for me.
I've driven in snow, ice, and hail as well as muddy dirt roads with no trouble.
Great visibility all around, standard heated mirrors are a nice touch on frosty mornings.
Very roomy interior and a surprising amount of legroom in the back seat for a compact car.
Interior cloth and carpet have held up very well and still in very new condition.
Solid enough for traversing back-roads for summer camping and hiking trips.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I totally agree with you on the daewoo front. I have a Nexia and she has had a few problems, but with care and attention she is the best car I have driven in a long time, she handles beautifully, and drives like a dream all my family love her. I wouldn't swap her for anything else, no I'm no old man, I'm 30 years and she drives better than the peaguot 106 I had. long live daewoo!!

I`m from the Netherlands and I drive a Nexia to, so far is it a very reliable car! He is from 1995 and it`s still going strong...
Maybe in the next future, I will buy a Nubira Hatchback (CDX) It will always be a Daewoo.
