2nd Worst Car I've Ever Owned
By AnyComonSens on 06/03/09 06:03 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

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

Review

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.

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

Review

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.

We bought TWO Lanos S sedans

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

Review

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.

Review

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.

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

Review

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.

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)

Review

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!!!
By Dumbfound on 01/17/03 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

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...

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

Review

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.
