  • Best car ever!! - 2000 Daewoo Leganza
    By -

    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.

  • Things started out good. - 2001 Daewoo Leganza
    By -

    I bought this car a couple of years ago with 70k, now we are at 111k and the car's engine TICKS like crazy! We have always done preventive maintenance (oil changes,timing belt, etc.) and the car keeps having issues. The air conditioning also went out (was perfectly ice cold for the first year I had it). My husband does like the power button, but I never use it. I wouldn't buy another Leganza.

  • Great Car! Don't be afraid - 2000 Daewoo Leganza
    By -

    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.

  • Cheaply built // HORRIBLE fuel economy ! - 1999 Daewoo Leganza
    By -

    Bought my Leganza SX in August 2009 hoping that this sub-compact would be easy on gas like a typical asian-built car ( 2 liter , 4 cylinder ). I do lots of driving (short 30 minute highway drives multiple times a day) and the gas consumption is HORRIBLE , my friend with a Infiniti I30t (6 cyl) and a Mustang LX 5.0 v8 gets better mileage than this car !!!! This is NO Honda/Nissan or Toyota !!! The car "feels" cheap , mass-produced and frail. Handling is loose and sloppy and the motor/steering feels like it's laboring at higher speeds. All in all , like the old saying goes , "You get what you paid for" it's no wonder these used cars are cheap to purchase ! Expensive parts ! STAY AWAY !

  • Still running strong - 2000 Daewoo Leganza
    By -

    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.

  • Love LOVE LOVE my car - 2002 Daewoo Leganza
    By -

    I got lucky and got my car in 2006 for 4,000. NOTHING was maintained on it and I only JUST have had to start doing the typical, tie rod replacements break pads and so on and so fourth. Of course I would love to own a brand new car but my car is still amazing. Anyone who says Daewoo's are horrible cars that will leave you on the side of the road are WRONG! My boyfriend has a scion and I laugh when I watch how many times he fills up in a week going the same distance as I do, actually less my job requires me to travel alot and I never have to worry about it failing! I hope you reconsider and choose it don't listen to the other people who say they hate it they just didn't appreciate it

  • Falling Apart - 2001 Daewoo Leganza
    By -

    I still enjoy driving this car--peppy, if a little slow to accelerate--but in the past year it's been in for major repairs (price wise) roughly every 6 weeks, and parts have to be ordered from GM and shipped from SOUTH KOREA. Problems started at roughly 80k, am at 93k now and they just keep getting bigger and harder to get parts for.

  • DAEWOO CRITIC - 2000 Daewoo Leganza
    By -

    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

  • Crazy about my Woo - 2001 Daewoo Leganza
    By -

    I really like my car. I like it's styling (it can hold it's own among newer/more expensive cars), it is fun to drive (power button is cool), and it has been very reliable. The only major parts I've had to replace is an alternator and a timing belt.
