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


Review

These cars are a rare sighting these days and I often wonder if I am driving the only Daewoo left on the road. My grandmother gave me this car about 4.5 years ago because she was afraid of not being able to get parts. The car was in perfect shape with only 39k miles. I have since driven this car very hard, I commute an hour to school in all weather (western NY winters!) and put a lot of miles on it. I may [non-permissible content removed] from everyone who sees it but I truly love this car! For being 15 years old Margaret needs minimal repairs and gets me where I need to go. It will truly be a sad day when I have to get a new vehicle.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

The body design.


Worst Features

More leg room.

Review

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!


Best Features

The sporty, 2-tone leather interior is probably my favorite. Plus, I get a tape deck and CD player.

Review

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.


Best Features

all for the money. Excellent quality! built to outlast the competition.


Worst Features

continue building them!
