Need Another One

2000 Daewoo Lanos SE 2dr Hatchback

Review

Here it is almost 2011 and the 'old girl' is still going strong. Nearly 200,000 miles. This car has paid for itself many times over! When it does die on me. Will be like losing a member of the family!

Like it, but has issues

2000 Daewoo Lanos S 2dr Hatchback

Review

I had my Daewoo Lanos for about 7 months now and I like it so far and I haven't had issues with it until now. all just minor for a car with 60k (front and rear brakes, tie rod, RF Caliper, and electrical issues). Gas mileage is ok on this car. I average around 300 miles to a tank of gas. It's pretty fun to drive, but parts are hard to find and I have to order even the easiest of parts for it.

Daewoo = Zero problems

2000 Daewoo Lanos S 2dr Hatchback

Review

I owned this car for 4 1/2 years without ever having a single problem. It had 30,000 miles on it when I bought it and I used synthetic oil the whole time which is a no-brainer for any car. Granted I only drove about 5000 miles a year, but the car was the picture of reliability. The new Subaru WRX actually looks like a Lanos. The style still looks good today and there is plenty of leg and head room. Did I get lucky and get a trouble free car? From what I've read, I suppose that is possible. All I know is that I would buy another one in a heartbeat and would recommend it to anyone who wants an inexpensive, reliable car. The chassis was designed by Porsche...yes that Porsche.

Thank you, Daewoo!

Review

I bought my 5-speed Lanos hatchback brand new in 2000 and have not had any problems with it at all. The car has started every time and handles well. I made sure to get all my oil changes every 3000 miles and I replaced my timing belt at 55,000 miles. There was a recall involving one of the sensors back in 2003 or so, but aside from that and buying new tires and a muffler, I haven't put a lot of money into this car at all. It's good on gas, has cheap insurance, is easy to park, corners well, and even has a bit of speed to go along with it. I think this car has served me so well because I've taken care of it as far as maintenance is concerned. Even if it died tomorrow, it's been worth it.

Wow

Review

Wow, all I heard when buying this car was that it was a mistake but I have not regretted owning this car once. I bought it used with 40,000 miles on it in 2003. I now have 128,000 miles on it and have only had one problem (a wire came loose from the loom and melted and had to be replaced). I am pleased with the car overall although I believe a little more power would have been nice on the interstate. I performed all maintenance before or at the required time and I believe that is the key to the longevity of these cars.

Lemon and Piece of Junk

2000 Daewoo Lanos S 2dr Hatchback

Review

This is the worst car in the world. I got this car after it had only 9K miles. Drove it for a while and all sorts of problems. Where do I start? First of all, it's not a very economical car and uses a lot of gas for its size. No power and it's very embarrassing to drive uphill especially if you have a couple of passengers. It acts like it has a motorcycle engine. Dashboard constantly shows Check Engine light which is very annoying. Battery dies constantly. I think there is major electrical issues with this car. Avoid this car at all cost people!

REPLACE YOUR TIMING BELT ASAP

2000 Daewoo Lanos S 4dr Sedan

Review

REPLACE YOUR TIMING BELT ASAP. The belt will go down before 50,000 miles. And it will ruin you engine. leave you with 16 bent valves. Almost all Daewoo cars have this problem. The quality of the belt is really poor and the repair cost will be more expensive than the value of the car. The rubber parts of this car are really weak.

Great reliable car!
By Dmitriy from Raleigh on 01/17/06 15:10 PM (PST)

Vehicle

2000 Daewoo Lanos S 4dr Sedan

Review

This is a great reliable car! I have been driving it for 6 years and it has 98,000 miles on it. I didn't have any problems with it other than replacing a thermostat recently. I have a 5-speed manual transmission and recommend it to everyone. It's fun to drive and gives you full control over the car. It also has great gas mileage and a lot of room for the driver and a front passenger (I am 6'3" tall). Yes, it is harder to get parts for it compared to let's say Chevy or Ford, but it is not that hard as many people think. You can easily find any part online if a local body shop doesn't has it and it's going to be much cheaper as well.

Better than expected

Review

I have this car for more than 5 years. The most expensive repair was under $100, so I consider it to be very reliable. It's peppy, fun to drive, easy to make U turns in one lane, or park in small space. I would recommend it to everybody, except for the lack of dealerships and spare parts (although the spare parts seem to be easier to get hold off recently).

Expensive Trouble
By unhapper owner on 06/06/05 12:02 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2000 Daewoo Lanos S 2dr Hatchback

Review

I bought this car used with 65,000 miles as a poor college student with high hopes after looking at all these positive reviews, but my experience has been anything but positive. I bought it for only $2,800, but have had to put literally half that into repairs. With only 72,000 miles on it, the engine had to be replaced because a piston broke. It was quite the ordeal to find someone with a used engine because parts for the Daewoo are not even being made anymore and very few people in the US are familiar with the cars.
