I still have it and driving it. It a great car I turned in to a racer. So bsd they don`t sell it more in Puerto Rico. I had to do some changes because most of its part don`t sell it no more. Most of its part had to buy by the net to e-bay. Or get the from other cars at the Yunkers.

I have had it for two years. No major repairs. Only one minor repair. But the minor one of a hose. My mechanic said it was hard to get a hose He said luckily this was a minor repair but what happen if it becomes major. He said for this car parts are going to get hard and hard to find. This is the only reason why i am even considering selling it. It is such a reliably car only if you take care of routine maintenance, even then it cuts you a little slack. This is the best car and the least expensive car i have ever purchased, EVER. Don't worry about breaking down i can get in and go just about anywhere. Can park just about anywhere

I have had a lot of fun with this car. It has saved me a lot of money in gas and oil. Great commuter car no problem.I think if you do the suggested maintenance you will have no problems. Most expense was I had the timing belt changed as suggested at 50,000 miles. With these engines that is a must. Just maintain the car as the book suggests.

I would not recommend buying this car at all. It lasted 1 year. It's had a ton of maintenance problems. Many of the problems seem to be electrical. So far we've had to fix the transmission, replace the battery, and the car dies as soon as I put gas in it. The parts for the car are also cheap so everything will be falling apart within the first 3-5 months as I noticed. The windows get stuck when you try to roll them up. The sun roof doesn't work. It's very hard to keep clean. I thought this would be a first good car. I would definitely not recommend buying this or any Korean car.

I love driving my little sport's car.
I've put over 49,000 miles on it and
don't worry about the transmission or
engine. The car is very responsive.
Since owning the car, I've had the
battery replaced, and my air
conditioning compressor has broke. It
has been real hard find a salvage A/C
compressor since I can't find brand new
parts. Also, on windy days, the
outside mirrors make terrible
howling/whistling noises. Finally, I
have a terrible rattle in the dash. It
makes a lot of noise on all but the

I'd heard a lot of talking low about
korean cars. But my daewoo lanos 99
surprised me. I bought it a pre-owned 3
years ago and have driven it over 36k.
It never had a reliablity and quality
problem. I recently drove it many times
of long distance. It runs very smooth
and accelates fast (imagine it's a 95hp
small car!). It's actually fun driving
