A Daewoo for Me.

Advantagesreasonable price, only insurance and road tax to pay after the first year.

DisadvantagesInsurance and road tax only included for first year

"...had a look in a Daewoo garage and saw the 3 door Lanos 1.4S for £7999, which I believed was out of my price range, however on discussion with a showroom assistant (“they don’t have salesmen”), I was offered the Lanos at a price I thought I could afford, with a special offer of 1 years free insurance and cut price purchase scheme. Delivery was scheduled on the day after the MOT expired on the Sunny, but if they could not bring this ..." Read review

Easy Way to Buy A New Car

AdvantagesFree servicing, small deposit, excellent city car

DisadvantagesArranging your own insurance for courtesy cars

"...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 test drive in the Matiz, and once we started to look at the prices of the Lanos, we asked to test drive it too. It only took us 24 hours to make up our minds to buy one, and we went back and placed our order the next day. Deposits can be as little ..." Read review

Nice but the paintwork sucks

AdvantagesNever fails to start

DisadvantagesBits 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 registration plates-fell off on a very hot day because the glue melted, 2 radios-faulty,2 speakers-faulty, 1 hatch lock-faulty,1 window winder-fell off. I could go ..." Read review

unsurpassed quality

Advantagesfast

Disadvantagesrare

"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 with improveing I still think that this state of the art car has earned my approval, with enough features to keep me occupied, I would definitely recommend ..."

Oh Dear!

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesTerrible build quality. Awful customer service.

"...and I was informed by Daewoo that this was driver abuse (after a WEEK?!!)The syteering pulls to the left and always has but my local Daewoo agent has no facilities to check this, a check requires a 130 mile round trip! All in all, to paraphrase the company's own advertising. Have another Lanos? That will be the Daewoo!! ..." Read review

No frills reliable transport

AdvantagesService package, reliability

DisadvantagesNoisy

"...be getting about 35 mpg. Where Daewoo do score over other dealers is in the servicing package, which is included in the purchase price, and apart from a most unpleasant receptionist at our local centre, I can't fault them. ..." Read review

A Car for Worry-Free Motoring

AdvantagesCheap to run, reliable, comfortable

DisadvantagesStereo 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 memories of my old Peugeot!) I was lucky enough to find a V Reg Lanos 1.4 for £3000 (with part-exchange for my old car). I was amazed that I could afford ..." Read review

Daewoo's and Drums

AdvantagesGreat, reliable and economic car

DisadvantagesNo 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. However, I have never had to utilise the tow bracket on my daewoo. Why? Because everything fits in just fine. Admittedly things would be a little more difficult ..." Read review

Who wants a LANOS?

Advantagesprice and service

Disadvantagesresidual value

"...If you are unfamiliar with Daewoo don't be shy. I was to start with but took the plunge 3 years ago with an ESPERO. With daewoo cars you do save money up front and get very good specs which does make them value for money. However, do not expect a good trade in a year or two later. For this reason only buy if you intend to hold on to for 3-5 years when you can benefit from a very good warranty deal. I have found the cars reasonably reliable and service ..." Read review

pathetic

Advantageseasy to fix yourself!

Disadvantagespoor quality!

"the cars handling is unbelievable. it cant go round corners at speed it under steers. iv had everything fall off the radio doesn't work my heating gets stuck on full heat it doesn't blow air by the windscreen so it fogs up on a regular basis. the paint chips far too easily. the rear window is pretty high so it makes it difficult to park. the gear ratio is very surprising, the car from stationary to first into second takes less than two seconds which ..."

My general experience of the Daewoo Lanos 1.4 3dr

AdvantagesDrives brilliantly and smooth

Disadvantagesfuel 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 so and the insurance a nightmare. Dont get me wrong the car drives emaculatly but eventually it does all add up. If you are looking for a car that drives ..." Read review

I love this little car

Advantagesreliable and always starts in the morning

Disadvantagesthe 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 the central locking myself manually. But I reckon this is a small price to pay for a relatively cheap comfortable car with all those added extra's. i've travelled ..." Read review
