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.

Don't give up

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

The car is excellent! I was also thinking twice on how on earth am I going to get parts for Daewoo since they are no longer in the US. Then the Chevy Aveo comes out and the Suzuki Reno in the US, which are rebadged, Daewoo Kalos and the Daewoo Lecetti in europe also the Reno is called the Chevy Optra in Canada. The Chevy Aveo has a 1.6L engine the same as the Lanos. This solves engine parts problems.




So far so good!

Very dependable, fun to drive subcompact. Comfortable front seats with good headroom and good forward visibility. Car rides well for such a short wheelbase, build quality is excellent and design is much better looking than the boxy looking VW Golf.




Good buy for beginers

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

Had it for exactly one year and had NOT one problem with it, even after using a not so expensive oil and filter. Gave me greate milage.It felt very save at high speeds, and it definetly was a fun ride. I loved the fact that it was small, but still felt spacious inside. The sound system was good. In my country most taxis use this brand, so you can figure that it is a very reliable car. I only got rid of it and bought the Leganza, because the car became too small once my baby was born.
