This Sport Billy Car Is Like A Crazy Bee, So Take Care... — I found this Daewoo a dangerous car to drive! Despite its little engine, you can accelerate easily and go to high speeds quickly. Combined with this, you have in your hands a car that rolls a lot in curves, has a very light feeling and of course, is fragile in its structure. At least, the brakes are not bad... But... if you are a slow driver and only go around the city, this can be a choice to consider. It is a small car but has an amazing interior space and ever got some nice luggage space!!! Its design is attractive but it has in many things that fragile feeling.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Lots of space for its size; Nice to drive IN the city; Attractive design

Cons: Dangerous at high speeds (ex.100km/h); Fragile feeling; Economy could be better

Very Good, Could Turn Out To Be A Suprisingly Good Buy — Although pretty gutless, engine never hesitated to pick up resulting in near infinite amount of revs in any gear and although there was no ABS on the model i had it wasnt nescessary as the brakes were spot on. Never needed to see the inside of a garage nor did you need a haynes manual for it as everythnig on it is so simple to change/maintain, Body work was solid and did a good job protecting me when T-boned by a people carrier thanks to side impact beams cleverly hidden in all the doors! Much better than a Saxo or 106 in this department as the only crumple zone in these cars is the driver. Appearance was a bit hit and miss for some, but this wasnt a problem for me as in the long term i got used to its "big eyes" and "smiley mouth". However, those who hadnt had alot of contact with it did question my sanity. Cost nearly nothing to run, cost pennies to get me to and from work and pennies if anything went wrong. A full service was reasonably priced but not really nescessary as anyone with even a scrap of knoledge would easily do it at home. Overall verdict; a must drive for anyone into small cars or first time drivers, very difficult to get into trouble and cheap if you do!

Pros: Very chuckable, very cheap, steers away from the boy racer image

Cons: I Personally cant think of any reasons to avoid this car, however, there are allways nay-sayers out there

Cute, Zippy If Well Maintained — its a fun car to drive, light n zippy n controllable - only if well maintained (isnt that with every car?) its 10 yrs old and still reaches speeds which are enuf to make anyone keep guessing of its age. and yea, the AC is fantastic

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: still a match for todays small cars, still the best AC i hav ever seen

Cons: too complicated electricals

1999 Matiz — Only 50hp but doesn't weigh much. 4 doors come in handy. Build quality is fine, it's still nailed together well. Looks cute as a button, very nice. Cheap to buy and run, and great fun. Also slots nicely into small car parking spaces. :)

Pros: Looks, size, costs

Cons: Speed, 'coolness'
