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.
Daewoo is still in the market they are just GMs now. The Chevy Aveo is a Daewoo the successor to this exact car the Chevy Cruze is a Daewoo the Buick Lacrosse is a Daewoo the 2012 Charger and Corvette are daewoos too.
