ABS System warning lights when driving in rain occasionally- resulting in ABS shutdown
Problem occurred several times all sorts replaced- Daewoo wanted to replace entire wiring loom- eventually problem just went during repair of engine see below---
Ticking Noise appeared in engine after long drive on main roads, but in torrential rain- no floods just heavy surface water-
Dropped into dealer for routine service and alerted to ticking noise- after week or two water damage was diagnosed- 3 conrods bent- engined severely damaged- Daewoo would not cover under warranty because of "environmental damage" forced to claim on insurance - cost of repair 6500 euro- claim resulted in loss of no claims and insurance doubled-
After 2 months off the road- car was returned - had numerous problems noisy engine, vibrations in drive train- broke down twice, coolant leak - you get the picture-
Here's the advice--- THE AIR INTAKE IS VERY LOW IN THE KORANDO WHEN COMPARED TO 8 DIFFERENT MAKES MODELS OF 4X4--- this car does not like water or even heavy rain-
Daewoo did not give a damn about me or what I thought of their car and my appalling experience of it. and the financial impact it had on me as a self employed service engineer.
It wiped out 14 years of claim free driving-
Dealer was OK tried his best I think- but NEVER BUY ONE OF THESE-
Yes they are great value, well spec'd, a good engine, but if thing go wrong the customer care from Daewoo (in Ireland) is indifferent to say the least.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
