Pleasure turns to pain
That's quite a run of misfortune and your message is fair. As I wrote in my review of the Daewoo 1.5i, buying an early Daewoo, whether new or secondhand, is a gamble. They were poorly built and the ancillaries were unreliable and of poor quality. But the Holden-built four-cylinder engine was generally reliable, despite your bad experience.

Daewoos were prone to a range of electrical problems that could account for the odd behaviour of the warning light, but it's best to take the car to a dealer and have it checked.Show more
