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 !
Interior modern and roomy , nice body shape
Everything else...wait , no wonder Daewoo is bankrupt !
Okay, so when people think of Daewoo they think of microwaves. This car is so much better. It was the best $26000 I spent back in 01. I love the styling, I think it looks better than a Jaguar. And me, I'm a big girl and the seat fits. The stereo is lovely. I love the bass. The fuel economy is excellent too. It usually averages 22 combined. I love my Daewoo and I will never sell it. My baby's baby's will have this car. They need to bring Daewoo back. They are good looking powerful cars. I love this car!
I love the looks, the power, the interior, the features, the gas mileage, everything!
If you are looking for a used vehicle
(Daewoo has stopped producing vehicles
for North American market for now) that
will last you at least another 5 years
with minimal mechanical failures, then
the Leganza is a perfect vehicle for
you. Daewoo's Leganza is one of the
most reliable vehicles out there with
room inside to seat 5 in as much of or
more comfort as Camry or Accord would
Leganza's dash board design is
originally designed and looks great
(take a look at other stock mid-size
sedans and you'll know what I mean).
Leganzas come with a premium Sony
system, beating the Japanese
competitors. The Leganza is a
comfortable and a fun ItalDesign sedan
The one thing that Leganza lacks is
power, although it is the German
engineered Daewoo engine, the 132 horse
power is not enough to give you that
push from stand still. However, 150 lb.-
ft. of torque is more than enough to
compete with the rest inline 4's.
