Things started out good.

Vehicle: 2001 Daewoo Leganza SE 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)

I bought this car a couple of years ago with 70k, now we are at 111k and the car's engine TICKS like crazy! We have always done preventive maintenance (oil changes,timing belt, etc.) and the car keeps having issues. The air conditioning also went out (was perfectly ice cold for the first year I had it). My husband does like the power button, but I never use it. I wouldn't buy another Leganza.

Vehicle: 2001 Daewoo Leganza SX 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)

I still enjoy driving this car--peppy, if a little slow to accelerate--but in the past year it's been in for major repairs (price wise) roughly every 6 weeks, and parts have to be ordered from GM and shipped from SOUTH KOREA. Problems started at roughly 80k, am at 93k now and they just keep getting bigger and harder to get parts for.

Crazy about my woo

Vehicle: 2001 Daewoo Leganza CDX 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)

I really like my car. I like it's styling (it can hold it's own among newer/more expensive cars), it is fun to drive (power button is cool), and it has been very reliable. The only major parts I've had to replace is an alternator and a timing belt.

Wait a second both of you. I have owned a 2001 Leganza CDX for 2.3 years now. bought it with 23.5 K and it now has 60.5K. To date I have put nothing in that car, but oil. I am getting the timing ...

I don't know anything about the Nubira or the Leganza, but if they're anything like my Lanos experience, I think you could very well be witnessing the next great thing in automobiles. It seems to b...
