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


Review

I just recently bought this car and although it was in fairly rough condition when I bought it, it was a good value for the price. They really cheaped out on parts of the car like the visors, controls as well as other areas that wouldn't hurt to of improved a little bit more. Stereo is great but the cd player will start the song over if turned off and the track up button sometime goes down instead of up. The cupholder blocks the cd player and buttons are often hidden. Stereo is mounted low. Overall is a great car for the price, just make sure you find an incredible deal like I did.


Favorite Features

Style, price, seat comfort, cassette/cd player, interior design.


Suggested Improvements

Loud, cheap headliner/visors, cheap controls, lack of dealer, and lack of availability of antilock brakes and/or 4 wheel disc.

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


Review

My only problem with my Daewoo is my radio will not work since I changed my battery. I called the service department. They gave me some codes, none of them worked.I do not get it! How will the thief know the radio will not work when they steal it? Will they really bring it back? HELP!! sc/Love my Daewoo!


Favorite Features

The gas mileage is wonderful.My Daewoo is comfortable and easy to handle on the road.


Suggested Improvements

I need to know I am protected well when on the road. My insurance company says Daewoo gives one the least protection on the road. Which makes my insurance really HIGH!

2001 Daewoo Lanos 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.


Favorite Features

The body design.


Suggested Improvements

More leg room.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

The looks, even though it may be a small car it looks like a very expensive model. I love the gas mileage!


Suggested Improvements

I would like to see the ride a little more comfortable. It can be a little bumpy.

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!


Favorite Features

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