11 years and 165,650 miles later, and I still love my Daewoo Nubira SE.
It has not left me stranded, and has only overheated twice, once when my water pump died at 152,500, and then when the original radiator cracked at 162,350.
Other than that just your basic repairs, if you take care of it it will return the favor.
I really wish GM, Suzuki and the unknown third partner had bought the US division and kept it in business because it would have been nice to see where Daewoo could have gone in today’s market.
Especially with the fuel prices of today.
The best investment was swapping the bad Hancook tires for BF Goodrich Traction T/A tires; it has improved the ride, performance and MPG of the Nubira.
This car is definitely a keeper, if not for a daily driver then for a perfect backup vehicle and will be used to the very end which according to my mechanic could quite possible be another 50,000+ miles.
I have about 24000 miles and the car runs perfect and I have had no problems except the wheels look a little ragged. I had a cracked windshield and the dealership said it was a stress fracture and replaced it for free. It has almost everything I want in a car. A great car so far.
If you want a great car at an amazing price,
this is it. I've put on 25k in six months, in
extreme Florida heat, doing high speeds,
and it is incredible. Safe, secure, good for
my fat body and tall long legs (I'm five foot
I highly reccommend this car for anyone!
