Review of the 2002 Daewoo Lanos

  • Daewoo's new owner, General Motors, has no plans for the brand in the U.S. market -- as such, supplies to dealerships have been cut off. Although provisions will be made to honor owners' warranty claims, we'd urge you to steer clear of this situation and check out a Hyundai Accent or Kia Rio instead.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Snazzy styling, cheap sticker prices, fun in turns.

  • Cons

    Daewoo's impending death in U.S. market, unproven reliability, whiny engine, cheap interior materials, ABS isn't available.

  • What's New for 2002

    A new Comfort Package for the S Hatchback and S Sedan includes air conditioning and power steering, while the Convenience Package adds power windows, power locks and a power passenger-side exterior mirror.

Fun car

Vehicle: 2002 Daewoo Lanos S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

I purchased for fuel saving. Drove it for about 8 months then threw a rod. It's been sitting in my driveway since June of 07. No one will even look at it. They say there are no parts availible and they cant work on these anymore. But when it was running it was a great car. Broke down at 61xxx miles.

I bought this car new with a/c, auto & a few other small things for $6,500! It feels like a cheap car but it was cheap. Not bad for the money though. It's roomy, comfortable, with decent pep.

THis is a really great car. It's unfortunate that they dont make them in the US anymore. I havent had a single problem with it ever. If they were still made here I would buy another in a heart beat!




Not bad

Vehicle: 2002 Daewoo Lanos S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

I bought this car new for $7995. It came with the comfort package, A/C, PS. It also had the floor mats. A pretty good value. I really had not planned to buy this car but the price made it attractive. Test driving sealed the deal. This little car has good pickup, it can manuever well in highway traffic. It is very comfortable for an econo-bubble and a real pleasure to drive. The power rack and pinion steering gives it very positve responsive handling. The five speed stick gives it the feel of a European sports car.




Do the woo!!!

Vehicle: 2002 Daewoo Lanos S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

I bought my Woo [used even though new] for around 8,000 bones, equipped with airbags, CD and cassette, and a Stealth alarm system. I left the lot with a reading of 8 miles. Today it reads 4604 [I know, I know. That isn't a lot]. So far, I haven't had any problems [except an occasional rattling, probably due to the kind of music I play >:)], and I don't expect any [actually, I'm hoping there wont be any, because its going to be hella hard to find service and parts]. I've had more fun driving this little car, than I've had with my parent's SUV [my dog likes it too]. Weaving in and out of traffic is more fun than ever!!! I can't wait to soup this baby up...




Cheap sports car

Vehicle: 2002 Daewoo Lanos S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

Good handing,engine has good power. Easy to modify to make sporty. No problems so far. I hope I don't have problems because getting parts may be a nightmare.
