GM never was the source of dealer warranty reimbursement.A separate entity was set up to handle warranty work at the time GM purchased DAEWOO.GM funded this entity as part of the purchase agreement.I know that there was a SUZUKI dealership in Spartanburg SC who honored these warranties.I'm not sure want the time limit was.I would check with JOE GIBSON Suzuki in Spartanburg SC.They may be able to help people find dealers in their area.
The warranty covers the power train for 60 months or 60,000 miles from DATE OF PURCHASE.My son had some work done about 16 months ago.His is a 2001 purchased Jan 2002.If the car is out of warranty any good shop can work on them-parts are easily obtained.Also,the engine is the same as the ISUZU 2.2 4 cyl.
I hope this is helpful.The engine in the SUZUKI Forenza also is a Holden motor with a shorter stroke then the Leganza --2.0 rather then 2.2.Most of the parts like camshaft sensor,egr valve.gaskets etc should be the same,

Great Info! - WOW, can't wait to get busy looking again! Where did you find out about the Suzuki engine being same as Nubira. And what is that about "Holden" motor. Is that a maker?
New Problem - Headlight fuse blowing regularly under hood. 15 amp. Lights go completely out. Did find that I can "pull" the switch stick towards me, hold it - and I have "brights". Something must be shorting out in the on/off switch stick thingie. So I probably have to shop for one of those, also. DID find out that if I DO NOT switch the "high-beams" on and off, the fuse is not "blowing". So, for about two weeks, have been only using low beam to drive at night. No soooooooooo bad, but would like to get that fixed.
Thanks for the great help! I will stay in touch. This has been great - first time I have tried this type of site for help.

Hi Friends - wanted to chat with someone interested in Falcons. I still own the first car that I ever bought which is my 1963 Ford Falcon Convertible. It CAN run, but is not currently running. Gas tank has been removed - needs repaired - relined - or replaced. That is one question I wonder about - should I get a plastic type that is fitted for my car, or should I try to "send out" the original and have it relined and repaired. Or, sometimes people do that themselves - but usually I heard it was something smaller and easier to handle, like a motorcycle gas tank. Any comments? I bought the car in 1970. It is garaged but not tended to much in past 5 years. Not planning on selling it. I like it. I can't part with it. It is kinda ugly, but kinda cute, also.

I have a 2001 Daewoo Nubira. Once it warms up it starts to miss. I have had it at the dealer 4 times. They replace the Coil Pack, Spark Plugs and wires. The catalectic converter and the O2 sensor the cheapest one $80.00. It is missing on 2 and 4 but has missed on all four at times with the computer hooked up. The compression check and fuel pressure check came out ok. The check engine light comes on. If you give it more gas it goes away for a while then back in 5 within minutes until you push hard on the gas again and it does it real bad going up hills.

have you had the recall taken care of, it could be the sensor they recalled my daughter had a 2001 nubria and the check engine light came on and she had it checked out and it would show nothing was wrong, nothing showed up on the diagnostic tests, she finally traded it in after several trips to machanics that could not fix it
know this is not any help

Mine did the same thing-it was a coil pack.I would suggest you have it checked again.

My Nubira runs a little rough, also, but not a real serious problem. Seems too noisy inside because I think it rattles other things in the dash area - depending on the rpms it is idlying at. I DID have the cam "thingie" replaced - thing that was recalled - but my exact cam "thingie" was not the actual item that was recalled, however, it was bad - said the computer - and needed replaced. It probably WAS the one that was in the recall, but the dealer probably did not want to argue about warranty stuff, cause Daewoo has not been paying for warrant work. So, if they agreed it WAS the recalled part, they would probably expect - that I would expect - that I would want "not to pay" - and that would end up them doing work and not getting reimbursed at all. Had the timing belt replaced when everything was apart - recommended for sure. PLEASE TELL ME WHAT A COIL PACK IS.

Cam Sensor - that was the part that I had to have replaced - deep inside someplace - they said.
