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.
The headlights are nice and bright, spacious car, fairly quick initial acceleration, and good visibility (if you remove the back headrests).
Useless to suggest since they are no longer available here.
