My GF recently got rid of a Daewoo based Suzuki Reno/Forenza. It was a total POS junker and always had some other problem. I basically gave her no choice but to get rid of it when the head gasket let go. If it had been just that, it would have been one thing but there were a ton of other issues that needed to be handled so the cost of the repairs exceeded the value of the car. I told her it was a Daewoo and she thought I was using some slang term to say her car was crap. I had to explain but by the time she was done with the car she hated the word Daewoo. It was nothing but problems.
She also didn't like the fact that her old car used a timing belt. This was something I insisted on replacing soon after we started dating when I began researching her car. Her old timing belt was just barely hanging on so we got another year and a half out of the car before it finally died. She would always comment that she liked the looks of the Chevy Aveo hatchback and I had to explain this was yet another Daewoo with lots of issues related to the timing belt.
So she wanted a small efficient hatchback. I am a Geo Metro guy and she used to have a Ford Festiva. She picked a Mirage in the Sapphire Blue as it matched her old Festiva.
Then a week or so later a cute little Spark pulled up as we were eating at restaurant. She asked me why I didn't bring this one up and I told her it was another Daewoo. She got a disgusted look and that was that. No more discussion or questions about that car!
I like the Mirage and she likes the Mirage so we are both happy. The new Daewoo based cars may be great but the one we dealt with was a nightmare! Something was ALWAYS going wrong. The thing was a piece of junk if you ask me. She now has a nice little reliable Mirage with a timing chain.
Heres a review Spark 2016
