Never has this been so effortless -and NEVER felt taken for granted. These folks made me feel special from the moment I drove onto their lot. Brooks is down to earth and ZERO pressure. He just wants you to be safe and happy in a newer vehicle. Scott made financing easy! These folks have been here for over 30 years for a reason. They know business. They know customer value!

I bought the car second hand after it had been driven almost 100,000 KM (in 2013), the car's fun to drive, has all the power you need and doesn't eat much fuel at all. I havn't had any problems at all except that the rear right window won't open from the driver's door controls (but it still opens if you open it from the rear button itself). Also you tend to hear a buzzing sound sometimes coming from the plastic around the door handle due to vibrations sometimes, but I guess that comes with the territory. Also the engine's a bit louder than average (no problems). Mechanically the car is still going healthy, gearbox still in great condition, and an all around good car - value for money.

Decent car, several significant flaws

I bought the 2001 Daewoo Nubira CDX, auto, as a retired rental in 2003 with about 18,000 miles. It now has 97,000. In general I like it. The design was sleak at the time and remains modern. Sunroof was great on summer days. Interior leather and design was nice and in general it's been a good drive. But beware. It has a few very significant flaws. Many owners have reported problems with control arms and ball joints due to a poor design. I've had to replace the control arms 3 times now. The emergency brake wears quickly. Right rear power window doesn't work, right front very slow. Paint chipping on door handles. Good car to look at, and fun to drive, but has some serious issues.

This car, I've made the mistake to buy it used, from a friend, with a 106,000 miles. After 6 months of use, it had become a nightmare, soon after the timing belt broke on it, no matter how good I've tried to maintain it. Worse, the whole car got the lower control replaced, but problem still not solved. I hated the car and heaven only blesses those who still own one in their garage. I'm also happy they don't make them anymore, and would not recommend anyone. I should have given it for charity, but preferred to scrap it instead. Don't buy this car please .

The car stops for no reason at unexpected times, even on the freeway. Why? Does anyone have a clue? I like the car, looks good, nice to drive, nice features. I bought it for a great price but it's not dependable.

Had car for 5 years. Engine and tranny have never given any problems 100,000 miles still going strong. Only complaints are the ac goes in and out (Just a short i am sure) and the control arm bushings need replaced anywhere from 30k-80k. Payed $350 for driver side bushing and alignment. Replaced the passenger bushing myself in a weekend for $35. Part shipped fast from Daewoo. Easy fix for the do it yourselfer. The way the suspension is designed there is great stress on the bushings. They need replaced just like tires. But because of that design this car handles and rides very very nice. I am still amazed how nice it is when i drive it. Love the Daewoo!

I bought my 2001 Daewoo brand new off the lot and I still have it. I bought it because of the low price. There were a few recalls I've had fixed and I've had a sensor fixed on my automatic transmission because it wouldn't come out of park. They do have a problem with a weak front end when hitting potholes (You know how U.S. Highways are) and the controller arms had to be replaced. The dealer has great mechanics and they tell me what to look for in certain parts that might go out like the timing chain after about 60,000 miles. Regular maintenance like the manual has in it has kept the engine running perfectly. It's been a real bargain for me.

Hate it!

I bought this about 2 years ago as my first car. At first I was in love, but now I have to resist the urge to take a bat to it! I had to change the front tires twice and replace the control arms in the first year (which ended up costing half of what I paid for the darn thing). Now I need to replace belts and tie rods, and my windows and rear defrost only work when I have the driver's side door wide open. Oh, and the air conditioning went out a couple months after I bought it. I'm crossing my fingers that someone will rear end me and total this piece of junk!

pretty great for the money

I had purchased the car back in feb '02 from a chevy dealership when GM was looking to purchase DaewooUSA. I got the car for pretty cheap and it put a couple thousand down on it. I didn't really start to have any problems until 70,000 miles. The A/C did go out on me around 50k, but that was because I had broken the coolant tubes after running over something. I drove the car around for 2 more years in FL w/o AC, but still a great car. I have moved to California and don't need A/C! I did break a pressure-plate for my clutch back at 80k mi and only spend like $1200 to fix the throwrod and plate (including labor). 100k miles now!

This has been a fairly decent car considering the problems with Daewoo's bankruptcy. The first five years I owned it (bought new), I didn't have any major repairs other than the timing belt, which is routine maintence at certain times. However, after five years I started experiencing expensive repairs and now Daewoos aren't worth much and hard to sell. My brakes have also experienced problems that about six repair shops can't figure out. They work, but not as well as other cars brakes do. I wouldn't suggest buying one of these cars to anyone. I feel like I was kind of suckered into getting a car I had never heard of previously. Lesson learned!

The basic short summary is that it's a very good overall car except it is in need of some extra power bad. It's had a couple of electrical problems, but is over all a very solid car. Comfy, great sound system. 27 mpg on the highway too.

No problems. Purchased new. Now has 35K miles on it. Did replace the compressor to the tune of $800 USD. Replaced first set of brakes. Other than the above absolutely no problems. Decent fuel economy - I get about 32 mpg highway

I have NO IDEA why I bought this car. I went from a 1988 Honda Accord which NEVER gave me trouble to this piece of junk which I have done nothing but sink money into. I now have to replace the tires which will hopefully stop the shaking ... but who knows! I found out recently that this was a rental car from Florida -- are you kidding? I hate it. I want it gone. Period.

Whatever you do, DON'T buy a Daewoo!

This car is an absolute nightmare! It is good looking and was very cheap. Other than that, there is absolutely NO redeeming qualities about this car. A month after I bought it, it had to be fixed 7 times. The "check engine" light goes on every three months, every time for a different reason. I've had the lower control arms, bushings, catalytic converter, tires, brakes, and brake hoses replaced in the 3 1/2 years I've had this car. Resale value is pathetic. Parts are expensive, hard to come by, and nothing aftermarket works on the car. Getting it fixed is like pulling teeth, and Daewoo's warranty people are constantly trying to rip you off.

I bought this car as a demo from the dealer with 4500 miles on it. I have had 2 recalls and had no issues getting them fixed in a timely manner. I have had to replace the cargo cover due to the spring failing, but was covered under warranty and had the parts within 10 days. This car is great on gas and I did some research and the size is very close to that of a VW Passat, and if I went MSRP for MSRP it was 15K less than the VW. I managed to purchase the vehicle for $6495 with a sticker of 17K and some change. Great car for the price.

When I first bought this car I was really high on it! Now,after having this car for three years I dislike it with extreme hatred. About two &1/2 mos. ago I had the timing belt to break on me which caused me a great deal of discomfort. In the last three weeks I've developed a problem with the Ingnition Coil. In fact I just returned home after having it towed for the 5th time. The car is going to have to be removed from my ownership as soon as I can make arrangments. I wouldn't reccommend this vehicle to no one, not even my worst enemy!

Purchased this vehicle 5 months ago and so far I have replaced a timing belt a set of heads (for when the belt blew only 5 days after purchase) . It took almost 2 months to get the parts and I now have power windows that decided to quit on a recent road trip . The car accelerates good but there is definant issues with reliabitlty and does anyone know where to get a troubleshooting guide to get the windows fixed? No one knows how to work on them!

Sorry the company went out of biz cause they were on their way to producing a great little car. (And my husband has more head room in this vehicle than in his 4-runner!)

I though I would give them a try and Im glad I did. I have put 73K on it in less than two years. I have had to replace a water pump at about 64K but that has been it. I was the first guy to need one at the dealership that sold it to me. I also replaced the timing belt which had to be removed anyway to get to the pump. I have a 5 speed and get around 28mpg no matter what I do.

I was looking for a used car at the dealer for around 10,00, I test drove a 97 civic and a 99 toyota corolla, I was disappointed with bot. I was talked into driving a brand new nubira that was priced at 10,500 after a rebate. It drove much nicer than than the 2 used cars, and it came with a new-car warranty...SOLD! I've been pleased ever since. (Even though it is disconcerning that Daewoo has since stopped selling cars here and filed for bankrupcy).. The car has been totally reliable, plenty of power, great fuel mileage, etc..like any cheaper car, if you maintain it well, it will last.

It has great pick up and a very smooth ride. I guess I'll just have to wait and see how hard parts are to get. It's a leap of faith that I'm happy I took so far!

Bought my 2001 Nubira CDX sedan brand new from a used car dealer who had gotten a hold of several via wholesale. Couldn't beat the deal - $13k w/ 3yr mfg warranty & loads of options incl CD/cass, tilt, AC, cruise, auto, power windows/doors, leather, & moonroof. Great mix of afforability & comfort, particularly for the 45min commute to work every day. Performance wasn't a priority - if it goes 75mph it meets my needs here. For an economy sedan it has clean lines that don't scream "cheap" like some others in the same class. Also has a fairly good sized trunk for luggage, etc.

Rented this car for a week while my Ford Focus was in the shop from an accident. I took the Daewoo on a vacation to Colorado. The seats are very uncomfortable My back was killing me the whole trip. it's also cramped in there. The car had a cheap build quality that seemed to work for the most part. Cruise control didn't work well. A/C didn't work well. Recirculate didn't work at all. On the mountains, it accelerated fairly well. mileage was always great. Truck space was good & the fold down seats were fantastic. One note:the back seats popped out & I found out there is no cushioning in them. it's just hard foam & one spring.

Price was great - features even better

After driving it a month it has gotten even better. It's been an incredable little car. The quality for the price was very good.
