Very good car

Vehicle: 1999 Daewoo Nubira SX 4dr Sedan

I bought this car in Aug. 2005. It has been a very good car. It now has 66000 miles on it. I have replaced the water pump though. Also the car was pulling when I push the gas and go around corners; I researched it and found that the bushings behind the front tires needed to be replaced. Overall this car has been great; the re-sale value is horrible though because of the company going out of business. The car has proven to be reliable, gas mileage around 24-26 mpg. It has very good power and pick up compared to most 4 cylinders I have driven. I would recommend it to anyone

Very happy with it

Vehicle: 1999 Daewoo Nubira CDX 4dr Wagon

Bought new, and it's been good to us. We had a few minor issues: the timing belt snapped at 40k and thank goodness it was still under warranty. Other than that, only minor interior gripes: Overhead hand grip screw covers fell off, and the backlight went out on the environmental controls. Tires from stock were not the best. We are starting to develop a little corrosion on the aluminum roof rack, but after 6 years - not unexpected.

Vehicle: 1999 Daewoo Nubira CDX 4dr Hatchback

Bought this car new. After warranty expired, had nothing but problems. What went wrong early on: CD player, air conditioning, ABS, heater cores (had to be replaced twice!), windshield wipers, alarm, head gasket. Struts seemed to wear out quickly. That's what I can remember off the top of my head, apart from normal maintenance! Spent thousands keeping this piece of rubbish on the road. That is, when we were able to get the parts. Because it sometimes took days for parts to arrive, we would have the added expense of renting a car. In a way, it didn't do too badly..finally retired it 4 days ago after 154,000 miles (bought new Honda Civic - love it so far!). DO NOT BUY THIS CAR!!!!!!!

I purchased a Nubira 1999 Hatchback and it now has 4000mileage. It seems to give a foul smell when I apply brakes and there is so much of smoke coming out of it with that too. Has any one else seen ...

hi, can anyone help me i have a daewoo nubira 1999 wagon, and i have two problems with it ....

You can't compare your Mazda to the Lanos. The Nubira is much closer. You people have to remember that the Lanos is in the class with the Metro, Swift, and Accent....
