I just purchased my Lanos SX on Ebay
about two weeks ago. I've put nearly
1,000 miles on it already. The car was
a steal. $4350 for a LOADED three year
old car with only 3,150 miles on it.
It's too bad that Daewoo went under. I
was expecting a slow car with the
automatic tranny. Now I'm looking to
install a cruise control to keep my
speeds in check. Fit and finish is
superb, the car is quiet on the
highway. I've caught myself running
upwards of 80 mph without realizing
it. Fuel economy is in the mid 30's -
again not bad for an automatic.
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.
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.
