My Nubi, the commuter mule
By ckrockett on
2002 Daewoo Nubira CDX 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
this is actually a 2000 nubi cdx wagon.
all bells and whistles except sunroof
and cd changer. love the car. swore
I'd never own a new car (since my '67
Datsun RL411 SSS), but a week in a
rental nubi sedan was enough to
convince me. it's a very economical,
but fun-to-drive car, so the 'bang-for-
the-buck' quotient works for me. great
for the commute, very comfortable on
long trips, flies low with ease on the
open flyways (aka I-5, etc. here in
california), and VERY nimble. I've
autocrossed the car (that's road-racing
in a parking lot for most of you who
don't know), and it's only weakness
there is lack of low-end power.
very practical for everything from
the young family to the commuter who
wants cheap luxury mixed with a tad of
sportiness, but can be
considered 'disposable' if trashed in
it's a compromise, but I love it.
The Nubi needs the plus-1 wheels of the
Leganza, plus 1" wider wheels at the
rear. This would really balance the
asethetics. Also, a V-6 engine would
be nice, or at least another 30-50 bhp
AND torque at the low end.
