I have been fortunate apparently since I have owned my 2001 Nubira since new. I did replace the compressor and the timing kit as a maintence requirement. Past that, its been fine.
The new Chevy Aveo is made by Daewoo that has the Chevy name on it.
Buying American won't necessarily get you American.
Again, check with any former Daewoo dealers and they can get you the parts. If a mechanic can work on GM cars, they can work on a Daewoo since Daewoo America was a joint venture with GM.
Hope it helps

i own a chevy aveo and if i had known that at the time of purchase i would not have bought that car, as for yours you are very fortunate to not have had any more problems with your car then you have.am glad for you but with this car my daughter has it has been nothing but problems as well as getting it worked on, the former daewoo dealer in my town has not been any help with the mechanics of the daewoo when it comes to repairs on the daewoo nor with the parts, our mechanic has told us he would not work on that car. nothing has been simple with this daewoo, my daughter bought her car new as well it had 128 miles on it at the time she took ownership it had not been owned by anyone but us, we knew nothing of the manufactures intention of going out of business at the time of purchase.

All I know is the light has been on in my Daewoo since day one it comes and goes I replaced the oxygen sensors both of them still no luck. But at 109000 miles I just dont worry about it any more.

Sure sounds like the timing belt. been there, done that. Went to start mine up one day, did not hear anything strange. it just sounded like the starter was spining free perhaps, yeah the whole engine was spinning free, no compression because every valve was bent. I've since rebuilt it, found everything I needed on ebay (about $300), it still runs good today over a year later.

Yep!! Thats what it was on ours. It needs a rebiuld job. All valves bent. 1600.00. Im not sure what to do as far as fixing it. the car itself is very ice so im trying to figure out if i want to fix it. Lots cheaper to rebiuld than buying a new one. Stinks for sure!!

well my daughter finally traded in her daewoo nubria and i am so glad. she was not allowed but $800 for it on tradein but it had been totaled by a hailstorm back in early summer.was suprised she got that as a tradein but we were honest with the auto dealer about it being totaled and he knew of course about the problem with the daewoo parts as well as finding someone to work on them so we are no longer a daewoo owner

i would suggest the same thing we went thru the same problem with parts as well as someone to work on it.was so glad when my daughter traded hers in she worked 2nd shift and had to go thru a rough part of town to get home at night and i worried so about the car breaking down while she was driving home she got a 2006 chevy cobalt and i feel so much better about her being in that car, at least they can find parts for this car when something breaks on it. we had so much trouble with it.the car had been totaled because of a hailstorm so that placed her in a postion for the car to be paid for so she found a good price on thsi car so we kissed the daewoo goodby and said THANK YOU GOD.

you know it is so sad that we as daewoo owners have had so much trouble with the cars we had to have a forunm like this to discuss probelms and to let others know how and where to find parts and what to do to fix problems.
when the daewoo nubria was running it was running good but when we had a problem it was a major problem nothing was ever simple even a brake light being out was a major production the wiring had to be totally replaced instead of a replaced of the light bulb.
