Review of the 2000 Daewoo Leganza

  • Unless you're a die-hard groupie for the underdog, consider other cars.

Best car ever!!

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Daewoo Leganza SX 4dr Sedan

I bought this car from my sister about five years ago. Sometimes she indicates she would like it back. There is no way she is getting it because I am driving it until the wheels falls off. It has more than 120,000 miles on it. It needs some cosmetic repair. However I haven't had much more than routine repair such as tires, brakes and oil changes. It is too bad they do not make anymore.




Great car! don't be afraid

Vehicle: 2000 Daewoo Leganza CDX 4dr Sedan

Had this car for 8 yrs and had minimal problems. Repair shops will give you the run around if you don't know anything about cars. I can get practically any part for this at the local Autozone. If a mechanic won't touch it you need a new mechanic. He/she should be able to fix anything and it's not rocket since. This car has 4 wheels and an engine just like every other car on the road. Much easier to work on than a VW for sure. I had my doubts when my wife bought it in 2002 but it has been a great vehicle and at 10 years old it looks amazing, is dependable, and cost us practically nothing to own. Great car! Too bad Daewoo went under here.

Vehicle: 2000 Daewoo Leganza SX 4dr Sedan

This is one of the better cars that I have driven. The ride is very enjoyable, and the automatic transmission is quick to shift and peppy for a four cylinder engine. I like the style and the way it looks outside and inside. The music system is superb and I like the cassette/cd combination. The only letdown is the lack of information on the different parts and where they were manufactured.Information on specifications and a shop manual would be greatly appreciated, since nobody knows the workings of all the different parts and availability for purchasing parts that require replacement and or repair. Diagrams of the various parts would be very useful as would be availability

Not bad for the money

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Daewoo Leganza SX 4dr Sedan

I was a little hesitent about buying a daewoo after all the problems I have heard that people have, but for $1,300 it wasnt that bad. bought car with 90k on it, and has a little over 94k. No problems, maybe a little oil leak, but all is well, and the "POWER" feature doesnt work. Great gas milege, about 400 miles per tank. leather a bit stiff and seats really offer no comfy position. Dont recomend driving far in this thing cause not comfy, but around town its good. Engine takes a while to warm up for it to shift into 4th, CD player and sound system average. A few quirks here and there, but thats to be expected. Even if the car goes another 30,000 miles,i believe that is well worth the $1,300.

Turned into maintenance nightmare

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Daewoo Leganza SX 4dr Sedan

Bought car new 1/2000 and got rid of 1/2005. Maintenance costs escalating.... after 2003 Only 1 dealer left in 100 mile radius who would touch it and EVERYTHING was special order. Couldnt even go to regular muffler shop like Midas, Meineke...Exhaust system cost me over $800. First 50k miles great, but if you are buying one used with 60-80k, get evidence of new timing belt or DONT BUY IT!!! Replaced at 65k with other items, I caught just before it gave out, dealer had 3 others in with blown engines...Daewoo seemed to have designed this to blow up 5000 miles after powertrain warr.expired. Often check engine light issues as well. Gas mileage started to deteriorate rapidly after 70-75k mi

My god - what a

Vehicle: 2000 Daewoo Leganza CDX 4dr Sedan

Being a construction engineer, I knew of Daewoo's high quality in heavy earth moving equipment. Over the past 20 years I've owned a Buick Lesabre, a Mitsu Galant, and a Honda Accord. All new. I must say that these auto these brands - along with others - are probably relieved that Daewoo is no longer around. In my considered experiance, this Leganza CDX is indeed better than any other car I have ever owned, on many fronts. The styling, handling, ride and build quality, features and duribility are supurb. I purchased mine for $16,999. In contrast, I remember a Saturn (with far fewer features less power and sloppy ride) with a sticker price of $24,789!!
