Review of the 2001 Daewoo Lanos

  • If price is such a concern that you're shopping Daewoo's Lanos, you might consider a Hyundai Accent or Kia Rio. These cars cost even less and have incredible warranties.

    Snazzy styling, cheap sticker prices, fun in turns.

    Unproven reliability, whiny engine, cheap interior materials, financially unstable manufacturer.

Pacific Blue Mica and Red Rock Mica are added to the palette for the sedan and hatchback, while Super Red and Granada Black Mica are available exclusively on the Sport. The new premium package available on the S models includes power windows, door locks and passenger rearview mirror; tilt steering wheel; AM/FM/cassette/CD stereo; digital clock; and variable intermittent wipers.

Not that great of a

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Daewoo Lanos S 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

The car breaks down when ever it wants, the mpg is not that great, i can go from corbin to london and have a full tank and it is on half. The handling is fine... but over all this car stinks, you cant find parts for it most of the time, if you need a part for it... good luck... i could not find a damn thing on it. So please get a car that you can fix if you break, cause this car is not going to do you any good if something breaks, the transmission codes on it cant be read on most gauges.... Good luck to all that has one.




Great experience my first time

Vehicle: 2001 Daewoo Lanos S 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

When I bought the car (my first) I was very skeptical, but I have never regretted it for a minute. I have had my 'woo for almost three years and it has never broken down, and has only needed its regular maintenance. I've driven it across the Midwest at least three times, and from Missouri to New York and back without a care. The only issue I have had to deal with was a recall on a small part in the engine, which was replaced at no cost. It is very easy to drive, and runs just fine in winter weather. Stinks that parts are getting scarce if I do have a break.




I love my daewoo!

Vehicle: 2001 Daewoo Lanos S 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

I've only had the Lanos, Daewoo for less than a month. I really like the car because the size, comfort, and style. It only takes $20.00 to fill it up. The gas mileage is great. I get around 23-28 miles to gallon and on long trips I'm sure I'll get even better. The steering is very tight and when ever you turn the wheel you better make sure you want to turn then because that's what you are going to do. I just like the over all experience that I have had with my car already.

Don't rely on reliability

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Daewoo Lanos S 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

We've owned this car for 2 years, and it has been one big piece of hell! The fuel injectors keep clogging, and Budget keeps making on us by using the cleaning solutions to clean them, $89.99 each time for 3 times, and we have to keep fighting to use the warranty to replace the injectors. Sound system for factory is awesome, but just dont depend on its reliability.




Inexpensive transportation

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Daewoo Lanos S 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

The car is very reliable. The air is cold and is comfortable for 5 passengers. The trunk is spacious enough to toss in golf clubs, etc.




Ahead of the pack

Vehicle: 2001 Daewoo Lanos S 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

The 2001 Daewoo Lanos is a great car in so many ways. It's inexpensive, gets good gas mileage, is fun to drive (believe it!), and best of all, has the get-up-and-go of cars that cost a whole lot more. I drive 70 miles round-trip to work every day, and most of that is at speeds of 70-85 mph. My Lanos has no problem keeping up with (and passing) other cars on the road.
