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.

2nd worst car i've ever

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Daewoo Lanos S 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

I bought a 2002 Daewoo Lanos with only 51,000 miles on it about 11 months ago. I bought this car when gas prices were at $4+ per gallon, and I got stuck needing a new car at the wrong time. I've always driven small 4 cylinder cars and prices on them soared last summer right when I needed to replace mine. This Lanos was the only thing I could find in my price range so I fell for it. The only car I've ever owned that was actually crappier than this car was an '86 Ford Escort. There really is no comparison between this car and the other 4 cylinders I've owned. I've owned Volkswagons, Toyotas, Nissans, Fords, etc. and this Daewoo is by far the cheapest piece of junk I've owned since the Escort.




We bought two lanos s

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

In February 2003, we bought two used 2002 Lanos S sedans sight-unseen from a wholesaler in Arizona for $3,650 each. Both cars were loaded, used only 10K miles, with remaining factory warranty. We could not be happier! They drive well, get 30+ mpg, and have been totally reliable. Factory recall [electrical] handed PDQ by local Daewoo dealer [our cars didn't have the problem]. Cars now have 21K each.




Too early to tell alot

so far the car is a pleasure to drive. performance is better than most cars in its class. comfort is fine for me and I am 6' 200lb male. like the exterior design of the 4 door and the trunk space isn't bad either. Like everyone else have concern that car is being built in Korea and Vietnam by GM/Korea venture out of Chapt11.




Waste of money

I am totally not happy with this car. I would never recommend this car to anyone. Yeah it looks cute. But when anything happens, don't expect to get your car back for at least 2 1/2 weeks. One time my car was in the shop for 3 months straight, then it had to be towed from M.D to N.Y, then it was in the shop for another month, then 2 weeks another time. It is ridiculous. I am trying to get rid of this car as we speak b/c basically the car is made of glue. Not worth spending your money on, even if it is your first car. By the way if you don't know already Daewoo went bankrupt. Keep that in mind.




Awesome little car

If you are by yourself or have a mate, this is the car if you are looking for good looks, descent performance, gas efficiency, nice gadgets and such. Awesome stereo and very good pick up!




Kicking butt

This little car has a lot to offer. As a student I found the Daewoo Lanos the best way to get dependable, affordable and good looking transportation. The engine is very peppy if you don't drag a crew around with you. I am always by myself so it takes off really quickly. I got the SX which has everything it it but the kitchen sink.
