What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It's spacious and well equipped, and the 2.0-litre version is quick and economical

Against There's a definite lack of driver appeal, reliability is average, and repairs are costly

Verdict Only price is in its favour. It's not great to drive, it's not very reliable and expensive to repair

Go for… CDX and up

Avoid… SX trim

Daewoo Leganza Saloon
  • 1. 34% of the car's problems are down to the engine and 20% to the gearbox
  • 2. Ignore any car which hasn't had the cambelt changed on time every 40,000 miles. The belts can snap, causing damage that's expensive to fix
  • 3. Too much mechanical noise enters the cabin, even at moderate speeds
  • 4. The Leganza makes a good family car, with generous room in the back
  • 5. The big boot swallows plenty of luggage, and the rear seat splits and folds
