    WOO WOO!!

    Yo' snap.

    I just gat daaaaaa WOOOOOOO. Fo ****zle.

    :)

    No someone didn't break into my account. I replaced the 90 Probe crap pile with a roller skate. A 2000 Daewoo Lanos 3 door with a 4 speed auto and 39,000 Miles in near perfect condition. The powertrain is under warranty for 5 years 60,000. Great for back and forth to work. I have a friend that co-owns a used car lot, he let me buy it for what he paid for it... $3000.00. I plan on getting rid of it by June or July of 2004. I needed a beater that wasn't beaten. It just so happens that it will smoke any Mustang, Corvette or Camaro ever made. Anyone care to drag race? :p

    Daewoo? Where's one of those puking smileys when you need it??!!

    Nah, they're cheap as hell. Probably more bang for your buck than a Cavalier or something like that.

    don't feel bad about getting it........I've been contemplating a new honda insight (for da mileage, YO)

    If I do get one, I'd have to pimp it out with 22" dubs and a big japanese symbol that means "glorified golf cart"

    Must I kick your ass then steal your GTP my firend?

    Without going into alot of detail I will say that my current financial situation is a little ugly at the moment, but I still have my job that I have ben on for over 9 years.

    I think this car is an upgrade from the Probe. Granted the rolling pile Probe was faster when running, but, it was a pile. This Daewoo is under warranty and runs perfectly. I'd rather have that than a piece of junk.

    I will indeed remedy the situation of having no speed in the near future. Patience sometimes pays off. :D

    In the meantime I console myself with the fact that things could be much, much worse. I see people driving old Ford Fesiva's and Dodge Omni's with dents and rust and smoke comming out the tailpipe etc... and I see some people taking the bus that walk home from the bus stop. No... I don't really feel too bad, it runs perfect, has a CD player and AC and it was dirt cheap and it is economical. And for a ultra sub compact... although slow with 105HP and 106 Ft.Lbs, it's quicker than you'd expect. Quicker than most old small sub-compact economy cars. Ex.. 94 Ford Escort with 88HP.

    I'll sell him mine in June for $2500. He's tooo dumb to know GM bought Daewoo and has all parts available and honor's warranty for them. So he might think he needs another one for a parts car. :shrug:

    Mod the Daewoo? Umm.... not. I did put in some Bosch Platinum +2's in, but I don't consider that a mod. I did it for maintenance. I would buy a K&N but just so I can reuse the filter and get better mileage, but I don't plan on keeping it very long so no K&N.

    Next oil change I might spend a few minutes removing the intake resonator if it appears to be restrictive and is not a hasle to remove, but only for fuel economy's sake.

    Thats what happened to them. I was gonna say, what good is a warranty from a company that doesnt exist? I guess I am stupid, too. Oh and on a related note I bought a 2003 kia Spectra, lol. Stripped, but it has a CD player. 9,800 out the door with a ten year powertrain warranty, I am not complaining. So I feel your pain Mike, lol.

    I didn't meant to insult anyone. However, you don't own a Daewoo so why waste time learing about the warranty? If you DID own a Daewoo and didn't know that... then it might be a different story.

    Well Mike, I wish you luck, and can't wait until you return to the ways of the L67. But it better be soon, or you're gonna have to spend a lot to catch up. :nice:

    I must be blind or something, but I just realized that I've probably only noticed about 3 of those on the road before. and one of those i did an oil change on. i noticed those things are made like saturns too, they're plastic.

    since GM owns them, do you guys think they share any powertrain components with saturns?

    I dont think that GM has ever made any Daewoos, but I could be wrong.

    GM does own the lion's share of Daewoo now (I believe they own 51%). They operate as GMDAT (GM Daewoo Automotive & Technology).

    Hop on the GM website - the new Chevy Aveo is actually a Daewoo (basically designed by Daewoo prior to being purchased by GM, and rebadged as a Chevrolet). In Canada, GM is selling two more Chev models that are actually rebadged Deawoos as well; the Chevy Optra and Epica. They're not available in the US.

    They don't share anything with Saturns.

    They don't make them but, my Daewoo has a GM 4T40E automatic transmission in it, even says so in the OWNERS MANUAL. Also GM owns Daewoo.

    They are using Daewoo's old plant etc.. to manufacture a new small car line, like the new Chevrolet Aveo...
