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.
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.
5-speed manual transmission! 106 hp engine; great gas mileage! Reliability!
The only bad thing about it is its resale value, but on the other hand it's good for people who shop for a used car.:)
This is a great car at a great cheap price. I paid $4,000 dollars for my this car and it has taken me cross country on several occassions. I enjoy this car but when something goes wrong it's hard to find someone that will look at it and hard to find parts to fix it.
This car didnt get the good reviews it deserved. I have owned this car for a little over 5 years and its been a reliable and very fuel efficent ride. I might buy me another one cause there so darn cheap right now!
Appearance, fuel mileage, and ABS.
No need to worry about these, there is nothing left to improve on being that this car is discontinued. It would have been nice to have a little more hp, but it does excellent in town.
