pretty great for the money

2001 Daewoo Nubira SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I had purchased the car back in feb '02 from a chevy dealership when GM was looking to purchase DaewooUSA. I got the car for pretty cheap and it put a couple thousand down on it. I didn't really start to have any problems until 70,000 miles. The A/C did go out on me around 50k, but that was because I had broken the coolant tubes after running over something. I drove the car around for 2 more years in FL w/o AC, but still a great car. I have moved to California and don't need A/C! I did break a pressure-plate for my clutch back at 80k mi and only spend like $1200 to fix the throwrod and plate (including labor). 100k miles now!
5-speed transmission model has much more pick-up than the auto-transmission model. super-light clutch, feels almost like a toy-car. roomy backseat and trunk for the price.
