My review of the deawoo

Vehicle: 1999 Daewoo Lanos SX 2dr Hatchback

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

Horrible car

Vehicle: 1999 Daewoo Lanos SX 2dr Hatchback

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.

Zippy little car

Vehicle: 1999 Daewoo Lanos SX 2dr Hatchback

On the whole, I have enjoyed having this car (almost 5 years now). It is a zippy little car, although it lacks punch in its acceleration - you can hear the poor motor strain sometimes. The "power" button is fun to use, giving the car a jump ahead, but eats up fuel when used. My husband doesn't like the poor safety ratings of the car, but (knock on wood) I haven't had to employ any of those features. I love the unique cloth on the seats - it's a cool pattern! Over all, it's been a good car with no major malfunctions. The only real downside: now it's difficult to find a dealer and parts, thanks to their bankruptcy proceedings in the US.
