Vehicle Overview
Daewoo gives the Nubira new styling touches for its second season in the United States. The Korean automaker entered the U.S. market in fall 1998 with the compact Nubira, the subcompact Lanos and the midsize Leganza. Nubira comes in sedan and wagon body styles. The company now has more than 200 sales outlets in 42 states and is aggressively marketing cars over the Internet and through college students recruited as “campus advisers.”

Interior
New seats with adjustable headrests in front and new upholstery throughout give the interior a new look and feel. Both the base SE sedan and upscale CDX seat five, and the rear seat, split 60/40, folds for additional cargo space. The trunk holds 13 cubic feet; with the seat folded, capacity increases to nearly 32. Power windows, locks and mirrors, remote keyless entry with a theft alarm and air conditioning are standard on the CDX and optional on the SE. An in-dash CD player is standard on the CDX and leather seats are a $400 option; neither is available on the SE.

Exterior
Styling changes include larger, triangular headlamps, body-color side moldings, larger and more aerodynamic outside mirrors and new alloy wheel (CDX) and wheel cover (SE) designs. At 177 inches bumper to bumper, the Nubira is 2 inches longer than a Honda Civic sedan.

Under the Hood
Nubira’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces 129 horsepower and teams with a standard manual or optional automatic transmission. Anti-lock brakes are stan...

Nubira’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces 129 horsepower and teams with a standard manual or optional automatic transmission. Anti-lock brakes are standard on the CDX and not offered on the SE.

Performance
Nubira lags behind rivals such as the Civic and Toyota Corolla in acceleration, ride quality and refinement, but it handily undercuts nearly all competitors with its low prices. A loaded SE won’t be much over $13,000. However, Daewoo is still largely an unknown in reliability and durability, so a low price may not mean great value in the long run.

A nice car with some problems.

by Tuffy's Mom from Millstone Township, NJ on February 10, 2018

The car was a wagon. It gave me plenty of space. The GM Holden 4 cylinder engine had a problem with the timing belt. The belt broke and wiped out all of the valves. The dealer repaired the engine at ... Read full review

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.
