To Buy This Car Is The Best Decision I Have Taken. — Excellent Car. Its been 3 years that i own this car in Dubai & it has never let me down despite the fact that it was even submerged in water in 2008 as After two days kept un touched, the engine started after two tries.Today i have a battery down.. but then its ok.im still happy with this car and would reccomend to all looking out for a mid size sedan. excellent fuel efficiency.

A Nice Car When Unloaded, But When Loaded, It Is Dead. — acceleraion is reasonable, and i shows great responsiveness when shifting gears down, but its maximum cargo is so low. braking is great, and the brake pedal is high, might be somehow annoying to new drivers, bu you'll ge used to it. hand brake is sof and has almost no sound, and holds the car good. seat position is high, which might give you false impression about the road, and the suspension is so soft. he car is stable at high speeds, but the cabin noise starts to be high beginning from 110 km/h. driving while having windows opened is also annoying as air gets ino the cabin from low speeds beginning from 60 km/h. the steering wheel is responsive, sharp, and gives you adequate sensation to the road. seats are comfy and have medium support, and the cabin is large, it can have 5 adults in great comfort. the sound system is fair, but the speakers are less than predicted, and the controls are reachable for the driver and the passenger, and are easy to use. the DOHC engine in all its sizes shows geat responsiveness, but somehow lacks torque, and the fuel consumption when the rpm are kept less than 3000rpm is very good, but higher the consumption goes on rapidly. the stability is great, and the car gives you false impression about its speed. the styling is accepted, but the car would have looked better if it was wider. boot space is accepted and larger than many of its rivals, but the loading tip is somehow a bit high. plastics used in the interior are of medium quality. head lights cover a wide range of the road. front and rear bumbers can withstand small and medium hits with no malformation or breaks.

Good Alternative Car For Japanese Cars — Classically elegant car. Good interiors /exteriors. Engine quite serviceable. It has steady ride at 120kph but cant stand at 140kph.Performance on acceleration and braking is good. Fuel mileage is best for a 1.6 engine..but the tires must be mag wheels standard.

2007 Chevy Optra — the chevy optra is a wtcc winner of 2006 that makes it a winner of hearts. being born a deawoo nubira, it lifts up the ghosts of deawoos past. GM did a good job but it could use more power and variants. the near perfect weight distribution makes a meal of the handling. good steering feel n response. the spongy brakes needs little work and am sure GM will rectify this in up-coming models. all in all a good, reliable car to own. needs a facelift as soon as possible.

!!! — Its fun and low maintenance. with nice acceleration and handling. mileage is also fine! not that great but what can you expect from a car that is 102 ps 1600 cc. In short its fun to drive. And that's my first car.

Comfort, ride quality, NVH, low end torque

Cons

shift quality, handling

Chevy Optra Magnum Diesel — What i like: Comfort class is what i will say first. Chevy Optra has the best in class seat comfort for both front and rear passenger. Ride comfort is good for bad Indian roads. Super acceleration.... thanks to the phenomenal low end torque. Good NVH pack. You will hardly notice you are driving a diesel motor. What i dont like: Poos stick shift quality. Doesnt inspire confidence in the handling aspect. The instrument panel is touch old. The audio unit doesnt gel with the interior. Overall: Good value for money.

A Daewoo By Any Other Name ... — In Canada, the Optra only comes in a 2.0L and was a Daewoo Nubira with a new name. It is not the same as an Aveo or Pontiac Wave, which were Daewoo Lacetti's, the successor to the Lanos. I have had two Nubiras, and had such good luck, I bought an Optra wagon, and yesterday bought an Optra 5 for my daughter. The cars get good gas mileage, and have enough zip for the 401. My only complaints were the GM stereo (which I changed out using a Suzuki Verona install kit), and the GM spec rear wiper blade that you cannot get anywhere else.

Simple and good for day to day basis people

Cons

not a drivers car

Not Bad — Simply a normal car, Impressive Performance, simple looking, Interior Build Quality is abit too cheap and feels cheap too, but somehow it holds up really well, it did not felt clunky or wearing out at all. the handling is somehow abit of a down side becuase it tends to understeer in tight turns when you come in with speed, the gear position feels nice, rear legroom imprssive overall, a nice and simple normal seadan car.
