11 years and 165,650 miles later, and I still love my Daewoo Nubira SE.
It has not left me stranded, and has only overheated twice, once when my water pump died at 152,500, and then when the original radiator cracked at 162,350.
Other than that just your basic repairs, if you take care of it it will return the favor.
I really wish GM, Suzuki and the unknown third partner had bought the US division and kept it in business because it would have been nice to see where Daewoo could have gone in today’s market.
Especially with the fuel prices of today.
The best investment was swapping the bad Hancook tires for BF Goodrich Traction T/A tires; it has improved the ride, performance and MPG of the Nubira.
This car is definitely a keeper, if not for a daily driver then for a perfect backup vehicle and will be used to the very end which according to my mechanic could quite possible be another 50,000+ miles.
Style, MPG, ride keyless entry and factory sound system.
Bigger and better cup holder, and an arm rest would be great.
