by photolarry on May 15, 2010 Vehicle: 1999 Daewoo Leganza SX 4dr Sedan
Bought my Leganza SX in August 2009 hoping that this sub-compact would be easy on gas like a typical asian-built car ( 2 liter , 4 cylinder ). I do lots of driving (short 30 minute highway drives multiple times a day) and the gas consumption is HORRIBLE , my friend with a Infiniti I30t (6 cyl) and a Mustang LX 5.0 v8 gets better mileage than this car !!!! This is NO Honda/Nissan or Toyota !!! The car "feels" cheap , mass-produced and frail. Handling is loose and sloppy and the motor/steering feels like it's laboring at higher speeds. All in all , like the old saying goes , "You get what you paid for" ; it's no wonder these used cars are cheap to purchase ! Expensive parts ! STAY AWAY !

I bought my car new in December 1999 from Madison Square Chrysler and Daewoo, Huntsville,Alabama. Over all I have had ok service out of it. Two problems Daewoos are experiencing and I had to pay for the repairs out of my pocket.
1)Fuel gauge quit working. Parts & labor $ 140.00
2) Brake Light Switch quit working. Car will NOT go into gear. Parts & labor
The main thing that owners are going to be upset about is RESALE VALUE!!! I have had it just over 2 years and have tried to trade it but I've been told (by car dealerships) that Daewoos DO NOT hold any value and no one wants a used one. SO BUYER BEWARE!!! YOU WILL HAVE TO EAT A LOSS IF YOU BUY A DAEWOO.
