A Great, Cheap Alternative by asuntos27 on 05/16/2008. Trim: 1999 Daewoo Nubira SX Sedan, Owned 9 years.
Pros: Handling is suprisingly good. I drove a 2008 VW Rabbit for awhile, and actually preferred the handling of my Daewoo. The transmission is very smooth, steering precise and has a small turning radius. Gas mileage is pretty good, too. No major mechanical problems up till now.
Cons: Rather noisy interior, finishing on the inside isn't the best, and I have had problems with the muffler/tail pipe which totally rusted out only after having the car 3 years. Engine cap seal leaked oil after 70,000 miles, but was an easy fix - charged $50.
Overall review: For someone looking for a cheap set of wheels, I highly recommend the car - the car has almost no resale value, and you can find a good deal. It is, overall, a reliable car and has a lot of nice features found in more expensive vehicles. The 2.0 DOHC engine gives a lot of power, and in the automatic version has a "power" button on the shifter for extra move out...nice feature in traffic sometimes.
