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.

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..

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.

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.

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.

I have never had a problem with my
Nubira. It's fun to drive and gets
GREAT mileage. I have used it for
multiple cross-country trips as well as
city driving with no complaints. I'm
definitely a Daewoo shopper from now on!
