I bought the car second hand after it had been driven almost 100,000 KM (in 2013),
the car's fun to drive, has all the power you need and doesn't eat much fuel at all. I havn't had any problems at all except that the rear right window won't open from the driver's door controls (but it still opens if you open it from the rear button itself). Also you tend to hear a buzzing sound sometimes coming from the plastic around the door handle due to vibrations sometimes, but I guess that comes with the territory. Also the engine's a bit louder than average (no problems).
Mechanically the car is still going healthy, gearbox still in great condition, and an all around good car - value for money.

I bought the 2001 Daewoo Nubira CDX, auto, as a retired rental in 2003 with about 18,000 miles.
It now has 97,000.
In general I like it.
The design was sleak at the time and remains modern.
Sunroof was great on summer days.
Interior leather and design was nice and in general it's been a good drive.
It has a few very significant flaws.
Many owners have reported problems with control arms and ball joints due to a poor design.
I've had to replace the control arms 3 times now.
The emergency brake wears quickly.
Right rear power window doesn't work, right front very slow.
Paint chipping on door handles.
Good car to look at, and fun to drive, but has some serious issues.

This car, I've made the mistake to buy it used, from a friend, with a 106,000 miles. After 6 months of use, it had become a nightmare, soon after the timing belt broke on it, no matter how good I've tried to maintain it. Worse, the whole car got the lower control replaced, but problem still not solved. I hated the car and heaven only blesses those who still own one in their garage. I'm also happy they don't make them anymore, and would not recommend anyone. I should have given it for charity, but preferred to scrap it instead. Don't buy this car please .
