2000 Daewoo Lanos Sedan S 4dr Sedan


Review

In 17 years, my 2000 Daewoo Lanos has never broken down. Never. Not once. I performed the recommended engine belt replacement (every 60K miles) and I change the oil every 8K miles or so if I remember. I have replaced the usual wear and tear items: like fluids and the battery, and also the alternator and tires occasionally. The only thing that ever actually went wrong was light inside the trunk went out after about 12 years. I know Daewoo is out of business and you rarely find Daewoos. But if you see one used, know it is a reliable car. Simple, cheap, but so very reliable. Any Japanese or Korean car repair place will be able to do the routine maintenance. It isn't a complicated car. But when they say they have never worked on a Daewoo before it is because they don't break down. Also a bonus - no one steals them for parts because there is no market for that. Hint: avoid red paint colors because those don't hold up as well as other colors. The only downside.

Review

REPLACE YOUR TIMING BELT ASAP. The belt will go down before 50,000 miles. And it will ruin you engine. leave you with 16 bent valves. Almost all Daewoo cars have this problem. The quality of the belt is really poor and the repair cost will be more expensive than the value of the car. The rubber parts of this car are really weak.


Best Features

Cheap.

Review

This is a great reliable car! I have been driving it for 6 years and it has 98,000 miles on it. I didn't have any problems with it other than replacing a thermostat recently. I have a 5-speed manual transmission and recommend it to everyone. It's fun to drive and gives you full control over the car. It also has great gas mileage and a lot of room for the driver and a front passenger (I am 6'3" tall). Yes, it is harder to get parts for it compared to let's say Chevy or Ford, but it is not that hard as many people think. You can easily find any part online if a local body shop doesn't has it and it's going to be much cheaper as well.


Best Features

5-speed manual transmission! 106 hp engine; great gas mileage! Reliability!


Worst Features

The only bad thing about it is its resale value, but on the other hand it's good for people who shop for a used car.:)

Review

This is a great car at a great cheap price. I paid $4,000 dollars for my this car and it has taken me cross country on several occassions. I enjoy this car but when something goes wrong it's hard to find someone that will look at it and hard to find parts to fix it.


Best Features

Great mileage.
