2001 Daewoo Tacuma SX 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Good MPV body, engine performance not great
Cam sensor intermittent fault had to be replaced.
Cam roller found to be split during routine belt replacement (earlier than recommended) This could have turned into a serious fault, £800 plus, if not discovered according to a mechanic.
R/OS electric window not working when purchased from used car dealer.
Worn bush on the front suspension, causing a clunk.
Space and extras (heated mirrors, multi-speed intermittent wipers, F/R fogs) etc.
Seat height and visibility good.
Looks good (IMHO)
Engine is a Vauxhall derivative and does not perform, very sluggish from junctions lights etc. maybe 1.6 too small for this weight.
Tax is high, but insurance is reasonable.
Fuel consumption neither good or excessive. I tend to make lots of short journeys.
At idle the engine is very quiet, but at speed it gets noisy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
