I bought this car from my sister about five years ago. Sometimes she indicates she would like it back. There is no way she is getting it because I am driving it until the wheels falls off. It has more than 120,000 miles on it. It needs some cosmetic repair. However I haven't had much more than routine repair such as tires, brakes and oil changes. It is too bad they do not make anymore.

Great Car! Don't be afraid

Had this car for 8 yrs and had minimal problems. Repair shops will give you the run around if you don't know anything about cars. I can get practically any part for this at the local Autozone. If a mechanic won't touch it you need a new mechanic. He/she should be able to fix anything and it's not rocket since. This car has 4 wheels and an engine just like every other car on the road. Much easier to work on than a VW for sure. I had my doubts when my wife bought it in 2002 but it has been a great vehicle and at 10 years old it looks amazing, is dependable, and cost us practically nothing to own. Great car! Too bad Daewoo went under here.

I bought this car new and was disappointed by not being told the brand was going belly up by the dealer. Other than that the car has 132,000 miles on it and still runs and drives great.No major problems and I've never gotten bored with the car. I drive it 66 miles round trip to work and it has never left me stranded.I'll drive it as long as it goes. Love the heated mirrors a godsend in Michigan winters and the styling.The cup holders are to small for more than a can of pop.

This is one of the better cars that I have driven. The ride is very enjoyable, and the automatic transmission is quick to shift and peppy for a four cylinder engine. I like the style and the way it looks outside and inside. The music system is superb and I like the cassette/cd combination. The only letdown is the lack of information on the different parts and where they were manufactured.Information on specifications and a shop manual would be greatly appreciated, since nobody knows the workings of all the different parts and availability for purchasing parts that require replacement and or repair. Diagrams of the various parts would be very useful as would be availability

I purchased my Laganza brand new in Feb 01. I had only 3 cars before her yet none as good. Never had any major problems, only recently the dealership that serviced her closed and there was no one reliable to take care of her. The other week the timing belt snapped. So now I lay her to rest ... If there was another one out there I'd buy it today - the best car I've ever had. Farewell Silver Bullet

I was a little hesitent about buying a daewoo after all the problems I have heard that people have, but for $1,300 it wasnt that bad. bought car with 90k on it, and has a little over 94k. No problems, maybe a little oil leak, but all is well, and the "POWER" feature doesnt work. Great gas milege, about 400 miles per tank. leather a bit stiff and seats really offer no comfy position. Dont recomend driving far in this thing cause not comfy, but around town its good. Engine takes a while to warm up for it to shift into 4th, CD player and sound system average. A few quirks here and there, but thats to be expected. Even if the car goes another 30,000 miles,i believe that is well worth the $1,300.

Great Little Korean Car for a good price

This car has lots of room for backseat passengers, plenty of trunk space, and even a decent stock stereo speaker system. It packs a lot of get-up-and-go, and seems like it wants to go faster! Despite weird little problems, such as the malfunction indicator light malfunctioning, you can't beat the Daewoo Leganza for the price! We do a lot of driving between Bellingham, WA and Seattle, WA, and this car has taken the wear and tear beautifully.

Bought car new 1/2000 and got rid of 1/2005. Maintenance costs escalating.... after 2003 Only 1 dealer left in 100 mile radius who would touch it and EVERYTHING was special order. Couldnt even go to regular muffler shop like Midas, Meineke...Exhaust system cost me over $800. First 50k miles great, but if you are buying one used with 60-80k, get evidence of new timing belt or DONT BUY IT!!! Replaced at 65k with other items, I caught just before it gave out, dealer had 3 others in with blown engines...Daewoo seemed to have designed this to blow up 5000 miles after powertrain warr.expired. Often check engine light issues as well. Gas mileage started to deteriorate rapidly after 70-75k mi

Being a construction engineer, I knew of Daewoo's high quality in heavy earth moving equipment. Over the past 20 years I've owned a Buick Lesabre, a Mitsu Galant, and a Honda Accord. All new. I must say that these auto these brands - along with others - are probably relieved that Daewoo is no longer around. In my considered experiance, this Leganza CDX is indeed better than any other car I have ever owned, on many fronts. The styling, handling, ride and build quality, features and duribility are supurb. I purchased mine for $16,999. In contrast, I remember a Saturn (with far fewer features less power and sloppy ride) with a sticker price of $24,789!!

The Leganza is a pleasant surprise and has a nice styling appeal (possibly Italian). It's lightweight and sporty. It is quicker than most cars and has a strong suspension and can out run a lot of cars. It's a road runner on the highway and clips along tremendously fast and solid. The seats are real comfy and it is easy to maintain if properly tuned and oiled, which is a must. The tires are speed rated and stock at 50,000 miles. The brakes work like magic and it's one of the funnest cars I've ever driven. (#1 of 8 cars I've owned), it really motors!!!

Honda-like in build quality. Nothing goes wrong with this car. After 37000 miles still drives and feels as new. Fuel economy exceeds EPA estimates for the highway. Use of Mobil 1 oid may help. Minor wind noise from sunroof. Only problem of note is the factory tires. Showing much wear. Replacement with better quality tires may help tire life.

Pros: I have had this car for almost 3 years and have absolutely no complaints about reliability or performance. I have had to do nothing to it except for scheduled maintenance. It is a very good looking car, right up there with the more expensive models. Cons: The gas mileage is mediocre in town but up to 29 mpg on the freeway. The radio needs to be replaced with a good one. The steering wheel hides the speedometer when it is in its lower positions. This car has been seriously maligned because of the bankruptcy of Daewoo, but the quality of the car speaks for itself. Now that GM is handling parts there should be no concern about service.

I had no problems at all with my car. After reading the review of the "experts," I have to disagree with their notes on the suspension being less than good. I think that it is a great car at a good price. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a good value.

Bought the car in 2000 with 42k miles. Love driving it! Taken it to Penn State numerous times with no problems. Drive it NYC and no problems. It has a very nice interior and the ride is superior. I think it deserves a V6 for a lot more power. I now have 52k miles and a big problem with this car is oil leaking. Had the valve cover gasket replaced at 48k and now need a new rear main seal. Otherwise it's a very good car...needs new cupholder design and the fuse cover stinks.

I've had this car almost 3 years with very minimal problems. I am just facing the drawback of resale after paying $16k in January 2000. But if you can steal one of these used for $5000 or so do it! Quality CD sound system, comfortable leather seats, good handling on snow. Fuel injectors can be a bit sensitive to make the engine light come on but it wasnt anything to worry about...so I would recommend adding a bottle of injector cleaner to your fuel tank every couple months. My local Toyota (formerly Daewoo and Toyota) dealer assures me that service will not be a problem even with the discontinuance of the Daewoo line.

Too bad they went bankrupt...

I purchased my Laganza used. I feel in love with the style of the car. (I thought it was a Lexus at first)Then when I sat in the car I noticed how much leg room it had. I was sold after that. I have had to replace the sensor light twice, but that was covered under warranty. Otherwise the car has given me no problems. I found it to be very reliable and dependable. Everything under the hood is easy to find as well. The get up and go is okay. I found it to be equal to that of a Honda Civic. I do wish it had more power when you have the A/C on. And the gas mileage is fair.

I have had only two problems with the car. First, the rear window defroster was not operating correctly. Found out from the dealer that it was unplugged. The second problem is that the brakes wore through too fast. The first set of brakes were replaced at 13,000 miles. The second set at 32,000 miles. It could be all of the in-city and up-and-down hills in traffic. Everything else about the car is great.

This has been a superior buying and driving experience. I purchased my 2000 Leganza in 2001, drawn to consider the purchase because of the low price for an auto with so many "luxury" appointments, coupled with the fact that I had been impressed while riding in one that a friend had rented when he was visiting in Ca. Factoring in the price I rate this vehicle a "10".

I was excited when I first purchased this new vechicle ($16500) but failed to consider the MOST obvious...RESALE VALUE. Last week, I went to trade-in my car and one dealership offered me $2300 and another said he could squeeze $5300 ($600 of that was because of the leather). My car is clean shining, beautiful, everybody ideal automobile but worth NOTHING. I WAS SHOCKED!!!

Love my car but after less the 10,000 the lifters would chatter. Dealership said change oil. Didn't help. They replaced lifters,didn't leave the parking lot. Then a head,worked a week, then another engine. One week later it started again. Car was down for 71 days total. Called BBB and was eager to help. Now after filing THREE times my case has been refused. Now plummeting value has caused me to pay dearly to get out of car. I was offered $5,000 tradein lastweek! Beautiful cars,loaded with great standard features but I should have saved my money and bought a used one for less than half. Plan to keep it if you buy one.

I've had my Black Leganza CDX for 2.5 years and it's been a great car for the money. The only reasons to buy this car are A) to save big $$ upfront vs. Toyota, etc; and B) better styling (w/ custom Konig wheels). Only problem I've had is with occasional buzzing I get from equalizer when I start the car which kills me since Daewoo is better known for electronics.

I have driven my Daewoo a lot. With the exception of having to replace the from bumper because the spoiler cracked, it has been a good car. It is unfourtunate that the company is in trouble because I believe these cars are better then other Korean car makers. Handling is sloppy for its type of suspension.

Problems with my Daewoo are as follows: One)the tape player broke just months after purchase. Two)the back windshield blew out after turning on the rear defroster and it started smoking. Three) Daewoo refused to check for a manufacture's default in the windshield or the rear defroster, until my Insurance replaced it.
