Review of the 2002 Daewoo Nubira

  • Daewoo's new owner, General Motors, has no plans for the brand in the U.S. market -- as such, supplies to dealerships have been cut off. Although provisions will be made to honor owners' warranty claims, we'd urge you to steer clear of this situation and check out the Hyundai Elantra instead.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Spunky motor, low price.

  • Cons

    Daewoo's impending death in U.S market, noisy motor, low-grade tires, cheap interior bits, ABS no longer available.

  • What's New for 2002

    Daewoo trims the Nubira ranks for 2002 -- you can purchase either an SE sedan or a CDX wagon.

Don't get in an accident

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Daewoo Nubira SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

ok i had my deawoo for about a year and i got in an accident i was going 5 mph and it totaled it. that was me hitting a reese hitch. the front bumper is of styli-foam. Dont get me wrong i loved that car it got me where i needed to go. if i was going 5 mph and it did that i would hate to see it at 40 mph. Would could have fixed it but it would have cost us more then what the car is worth. The air bags are 3000 a piece. And we could not find a radiator any where this car is alot of work if u have the money to but in it then go for it. This car is very expense to fix..




Not necessarily wise

Vehicle: 2002 Daewoo Nubira SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I have had my Daewoo for about 2 years now and am at 57,000 miles. I have had 2 window regulators go bad (different windows), problems with the front axle, problems unlocking the doors in the winter, and a bad front cam-shaft sensor. These aren't major problems, but since parts aren't available, it is annoying waiting 3 weeks to get something fixed. It has me worried what will happen when something gets worse (can I go 3 weeks without a car if there is a serious problem?). If you want an inexpensive car, feel free to purchase one (trade-in value is awful and you get what you pay for in this case). Otherwise, I would spend a little extra and get something with more quality.




Goodbye woo

Vehicle: 2002 Daewoo Nubira SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I HAVE HAD THE WOO NOW FOR ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF. IT IS A VERY PRETTY CAR. AND HANDLES WELL. ALTHOUGH, JUST ABOUT EVERY OTHER WEEK I HAD TIRE TROUBLE. IF IT WERE NOT FOR THE FACT THAT DAEWOO IS NO LONGER MAKING THE CAR AND THAT IT'S PARTS ARE SO HARD TO FIND, I MIGHT HAVE CONSIDERED KEEPING IT.




Worth the money...............

Vehicle: 2002 Daewoo Nubira CDX 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

i have almost 40,000 miles on my car with no problems to date. It's a fun car to drive and great on gas mileage with plenty of room. It has certainly been worth the money




$ - very good

Vehicle: 2002 Daewoo Nubira CDX 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

My Daewoo was a X-mass Gift and It would not have been on my list BUT It really should have!! I have had No problems with it. It has Great pick-up, looks Good, Very Good Air-Con, Excellent Sound System and Brakes well. Do you really need more?




Great car

Vehicle: 2002 Daewoo Nubira SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I have owned my Nubira since Nov of 2000, the car has been through a lot of work, at 50,000 and not a major problem yet (knock on wood) the car has been extremly reliable, nothing major. Yes it is hard to find parts but if it works great then why do u need parts ? This car can stay with your hondas it will beat your civics and neons, it provides great handling at high speeds and its k on the gas. I believe this car can hug turns at speeds over 90 mph and its always something that make people wonder why kind of car is that. Fun to drive and good power, not enough but good for a 4 cyl. eng.
