2000 Daewoo Nubira SE 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Modern, reliable and comfortable!
Rear wheel bearing needed replacement.
Front wish-bones needed renewing.
Mine is in metallic silver and I feel the design is still relatively modern. Many people have complemented the appearance of the car, it has a distinctive bonnet and large headlights. The rear of the car also looks good. The chrome badging throughout gives a smart appearance overall.
The interior is solid and of good quality, it is quite a civilised place to be! The chrome detailing continues through to the interior with large curved chrome door handles. In terms of creature comforts, the car has every option that the modern motorist requires. Air conditioning with pollen filter, PAS, ABS with EBD, Dual airbags, dual cup-holders, Remote boot release, remote fuel release, velour upholstery, pioneer CD player, excellent 6-way speakers! It all feels well put together - after all - it was constructed in one of the most modern manufacturing plants at the time!
The car also benefits from remote central locking, alarm and immobiliser.
Fuel economy is good rather than outstanding, I tend to average 32 mpg in the city, 40-42 mpg on the motorway.
Reliability? Well I needed to have the wishbones and one rear bearing replaced, but this was not expensive. The daewoo/chevrolet dealers seem polite and efficient.
Sailed through its m.o.t.!
Comfortable to drive, even after 5 hour journeys!
Overall I am pleased with the car and will look to daewoo/chevrolet when it is due for replacement.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The engine light is a problem with the engine light system and a fairly comon issue (every car has one or 2 badpoints).
