Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Leganza debuted last year as the largest and most expensive model in Daewoo’s three-car lineup. Daewoo (pronounced “day-woo”) is a South Korean manufacturer that now has more than 200 sales outlets in 42 states. Daewoo also sells cars through its “campus advisers” — college students who recruit fellow students as first-time buyers. The company promises a “no haggle” sales approach in which its cars are sold at suggested retail.

Exterior
The Leganza comes in four-door styling, and at 184 inches overall, it is 4 to 5 inches shorter than the Toyota Camry or Honda Accord. Appearance changes this year include a larger chrome grille and 10-spoke aluminum wheels (standard on the top-line CDX and optional on the SX).

Interior
Five-passenger seating and a 60/40-split rear seatback that folds for extra cargo room are standard. All models also come with air conditioning and power locks, windows and heated mirrors. Leather upholstery is standard on the SX and CDX models and not available on the base SE.

Under the Hood
The front-wheel-drive Leganza comes with a 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 131 horsepower. The SE comes with a standard five-speed manual or optional four-speed automatic transmission. Other models come with the automatic.

Anti-lock brakes are standard on the SX and CDX, and the CDX also has traction control.

Performance
With a base price of $13,660, Leganza is an attractively priced sedan that performs capably and comes with the features most buyers want.

However, a lot of questions remain about Daewoo, starting with how the company came up with a name like Leganza. Durability and resale value are unknowns. While the prices are low now, at trade-in time they might be rock bottom.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
