“A Daewoo for Me.”

reasonable price, only insurance and road tax to p...

Insurance and road tax only included for first yea...

When my 10 year old Nissan Sunny was needing to be replaced (MOT, insurance and automobile rescue almost expired, service and repairs required) I looked around for a second – hand car, I also had a look in a Daewoo garage and saw the 3 door Lanos 1.4S for £7999, which I believed was out of...

“Easy Way to Buy A New Car”

published 22/02/2001

Free servicing, small deposit, excellent city car

Arranging your own insurance for courtesy cars

After much hunting around used car dealers and enquiries about car loans, I spotted an ad in the paper advertising the new Daewoo Matiz and the excellent deals that Daewoo offer. So, my husband and I went along to our nearest outlet and found the staff to be extremely helpful. We were taken for a...

Not for me

“Oh Dear!”

None

Terrible build quality. Awful customer service.

I have had a Lanos 1.4 SE for just under 3 years now on a Motability contract. Thank heavens I didn't use my own money to pay for it! I have driven cars for 30 years and this is the worst vehicle I have ever owned! The average fuel consumption (reasonable mix of urban and long range driving) is...

“unsurpassed quality”

published 12/07/2000

fast

rare

This car was recommended to me by a friend, although I haven’t bought it I have driven around in it enough To get hooked. From the start I was blown away by the superb interior , sleek design, drivability and crystal clear sound from the radio, although, some of the creature comforts could do...

Cheap to run, reliable, comfortable

Stereo is not great - eats lots of tapes!

I bought my Daewoo Lanos in April 2003 after finally trading in my unreliable and frankly dying Peugeot 205. I was looking for a car that would not let me down - would start every morning, not overheat in traffic jams and not cover me with water from leaky windows and sunroof. (Ah, such fond...

“Who wants a LANOS?”

published 26/06/2000

price and service

residual value

Since nobody seems to have an opinion on this car I felt the need to oblige. No, I do not own one but have the use of one quite often since it is the courtesy car usually provided by Daewoo. It is small and has a flimsy feel has a modicum of comfort. However, it is competively priced and should...

“No frills reliable transport”

published 12/02/2001

Service package, reliability

Noisy

I've owned our Lanos for just under three years now, and apart from the fact that people keep driving into it we can't fault it. If you're looking for a high spec, performance car - this isn't it. What it is is good honest 'old fashioned' reliable transport. There's room enough for four adults...

“Daewoo's and Drums”

published 15/01/2003

Great, reliable and economic car

No longer in production

Yeah, the daewoo Lanos is a great small car.... ....or so you think. You see these cars aren't actually that small. I've had mine since 1999 and it is still serving me well. I am a musician, and a percussionist at that, so I have racked up about 50,000 to and from gigs in the last 3 years...

“Daewoo lanos 1.4”

Safety, roomy

Really really slow

I got this car as a present.. and i have to start by saying its a comfortable car with lots of safety features and is relatively roomy.. contrary to other reviews here... my car does over 30 to the gallon regularly.. in city/urban driving which is quite good, although the tank is a bit small. The...

Drives brilliantly and smooth

fuel consumption, insuranace and tax!

I had a Lanos 1.4 for my first car, i was able to pick one up cheap from the local scrap yard with only the bumper missing. I loved the look of the car and it had 75 bhp which suited me fine. I generally loved the car until i saw its downside, the emissions were abismal, the fuel consumption less...

“I love this little car”

published 24/02/2005

reliable and always starts in the morning

the cental locking when it's icy

Well I replaced my old escort in 2003 for my current Daewo Lanos 1.4. She is a more reliable car and always starts in the morning - even in the arctic wintery conditions. Alas the only problem is when we have a whiff of ice the driver door wont open. I have to open the passenger side and flick...

Never fails to start

Bits fall off on a regular basis

I bought my Lanos in march 1998. She never fails to start in the morning and thats great. But ask me would I have another when this has had it's lot then the answer would have to be a resounding NO! Within the first 12 months I have had replaced, 1 dashboard-cracked,2 badges-stolen, 2...
