2000 Daewoo Nubira SE 1.6 from UK and Ireland


Modern, reliable and comfortable!


Rear wheel bearing needed replacement.

Front wish-bones needed renewing.

General Comments:

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.

Easily could get one/ get ready for headache


Make sure you replaced the timing belt on time cause you'll be in trouble.

Sensors go bad really fast on vehicle.

General Comments:

Almost nobody sell parts for vehicle.

Engine light goes on all the time due to parts go bad easily.

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

Reliable and cheap alternative to the more expensive wagons


Central Locking sometimes does not work.

General Comments:

I have found the car very reliable.

Economical to run.

Air conditioning works very well to clear windscreen and I have had no problems with it to date.

Looks great in dark metallic blue. Looks more expensive than it cost.

Seats are comfortable with reasonable support. Not the greatest in material or look though.

Not a fast car, a little under powered when you have more than two people or a load in the back.

Handles OK for the type of car that it is. You do need to have good tyre's on to get reasonable handeling.

Does not burn oil.

Drives well on a long trip, smooth on the open road, very little road noise, but again a little under powered for overtaking or hill climbing.

I think this car is a great cheaper alternative to more expensive wagons. I have found it very reliable and holds its own in some areas with some other more expensive wagons.

Cute and fun to own, but comes with a big price tag


AC Compressor went bad.

Engine Light Sensor went bad.

Quite a bit of things had gone wrong! I just can remember now.

General Comments:

This car was super comfortable and cute. I really enjoyed it while it lasted.

Unfortunately, a small accident took it away and insurance totaled it. I wouldn't buy another one, though, because it's too hard to fix and the value's so low.

It's Korean crap!


The rotors had to be replaced at 10,000 miles.

The rotors have been replaced altogether three times as well as brake pads.

All tires had to be replaced before it had 36000 miles on it.

The battery died after two years.

The seats creak and the doors have to be oiled on a regular basis because of the squeaking noise when you open them.

Now the worse nightmare the timing belt blew and the whole engine had to be replaced because the head gasket got messed up on it.

General Comments:

The only things good about this car are the radio and alarm. I kind of like the Cd player. The alarm system is pretty good too.

With Daewoo, Chevrolet, Opel, and Vauxhall cars, you need to change the timing belt at maximum 60k km. You thought a rubber belt lasts forever. God... it's only 20$ for a new belt.

And the labor cost??

Why do you keep posting this same $20 timing belt comment? Sure the belt itself is cheap -- the labor cost to replace it is not.

It's 60K MILES, not km.
