2000 Daewoo Lanos Hatchback SE 2dr Hatchback


Review

I bought this car , after my Honda Civic was stolen, not knowing it was a corporate orphan. Nevertheless, It has a better radio (4 spkrs) than my Civic, rear windows pop out, & seats are most comfortable. I had the windows tinted, & installed sheepskin seatcovers. It has been a great car, & dependable. Only expenses in a year & 1/2 are two tires (Fr.), new battery, & wiper blades!


Best Features

Cornering, like a snake!, AC always cold (in AZ.)


Worst Features

gas mileage!

Review

As a second vehicle to my BMW 740i,
I've used this vehicle as a get around
town car, and it has performed well
without any major problems. It has some
hard working 22,500 miles on it. The
only problem associated with it has
been the headlight connections burned
out on each side. A trip to the dealer
took care of the problem before Daewoo
closed their doors. Roomy for it's size
and a wonderfully cold air conditioner
has been appreciated. The ride is a bit
rough on torn up streets, but it isn't
rattling and noisy while driving. It
keeps up with the traffic and parking
is a breeze. The paint is still glossy
and clean after years of being in the
elements.


Best Features

The 1.6 engine has been without fail. I'm generally satisfied with the car, although parts might be a problem later.


Worst Features

Seats are adequate but they could use more support on the lower back area. The plastic interior in the fit and finish department needs more attention to quality, but then again - it wasn't built for luxury. It's functional.

Review

I have this car for about 3 1/2 years
and I only have had minor problems due
to the normal use, and unluckly with
this car since I had a accident 6
months after I bought it, but the
Daewoo dealer took care of everything,
and basicly they rebuilt my car and I
could not believe it still drive
perfect with no noise and no
problems ...And so far I had only
change oil, tires, and brake pads. But
the only thing I don't like is the
noise that my car make and when
accelate with the AC it loses power.
I would buy it again if they had
2005/06, because I would not sale my
car before then, there is no need, it
is a excellent economic car car

Review

This car has not given me any problems
whatsoever. It's fun to drive,
surprisingly roomy, fairly good on gas,
and offers a lot of features for an
unbelievably low price. I live in
South Carolina and I've driven this car
to New Jersey, Alabama, Florida, and
Washington DC without any problems.
I've kept the car properly maintained
and it has never let me down. Of
course, a Daewoo Lanos Hatchback is NOT
a BMW 5-Series, but for $9000, I
definitely got more than my money's
worth. Great car!


Best Features

The sheer amount of cargo room that you can get by folding the rear seats up is great. I also like the stereo and intermittent wipers, features that are optional on other cars, but standard on the Lanos. The Lanos' cornering ability is unbelievable.


Worst Features

Sometimes it's not easy to shift into reverse or 2nd gear with the manual transmission. The acceleration could be improved (especially when going uphill), but it's certainly acceptable.
