What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For Cheap to buy and run, plenty of space, lots of equipment

Against Not enjoyable to drive; cheap, plasticky interior

Verdict Steer clear. Cheap but not remotely cheerful

Go for… 2.0 diesel

Avoid… 1.6 petrol

Daewoo Nubira Saloon
  • 1. Check the interior carefully. It's common for pieces of trim to go missing or rattle
  • 2. There should be no mechanical problems. Both engines are pretty bomb-proof
  • 3. The cambelt needs replacing every 40,000 miles, so check the mileage carefully on any prospective buy. There could be a big bill just round the corner
  • 4. The car is basically sound, but there have been some reports of suspension problems
  • 5. Practicality isn't too bad. The boot will take a large weekly shop or a couple of suitcases
