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.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Snazzy styling, cheap sticker prices, fun in turns.

  • Cons

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

  • What's New for 2001

    Daewoo adds the new Sport Hatchback model to the Lanos lineup for 2001, but discontinues the SE Hatchback and SX Sedan. 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.

Vehicle: 2001 Daewoo Lanos Sport 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

Our family purchased the vehicle new in Sept. 2001. It had 2 miles upon delivery. The vehicle was used to commute 5 days a week from Sussex NJ to Wayne NJ. The upper half of motor was rebuilt at around 75k. Timing chain snapped and damaged motor. The odometer is creeping up on 100k. The air is still cold, it still drives in a straight line and only had 3 alignments in 4 years. The original fuel pump is still pumping. The automatic transaxle still shifts smoothly with nearly 100k. My friends liked it as much as I do and I wish more people appreciated the car. It's a great car! If they were still available for sale in the US I would go buy another brand new one.

I love driving this car! It's fun and it looks great. Not to mention the approximately 28 mpg I get with all the driving that I do. Awesome!

Vehicle: 2001 Daewoo Lanos Sport 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

The most BANG for your buck! Only wish it got a little better gas milage. But overall excellent performance, style and for the money, comfort. Its too bad that Generous Motors had to pull the plug on the American Based portion. For a large company, they sure were scared of a small company making a dent in their precious sales. I will never buy another General Motors product again.

Good, for now...

Vehicle: 2001 Daewoo Lanos Sport 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

I have had the car since 2001 with only 28 miles on it. I know have over 40,000 miles on it and the only problem I have had with it is replacing the upper coolant hose & O ring. Not bad, but I had to overnight the parts, otherwise it would take 4-5 days just to get the part. Plus, my dealrhsip doesnt deal with Daewoos anymore so if I need a repair I have to go somewhere else, and Daewoo dealers are getting scarece. I do enjoy the size, as I am in Chicago and parking there is tough, but not for me! And you cant beat $13 for gas each week, and I drive well over 200 miels a week.
