Daewoo Emblem Car Info The car was originally purchased, brand-new, in 2000. My relatives gave it to me as my 16th birthday present in July of 2007. Since then, I have made several cosmetic chages to it, both the interior and exterior. In winter '07, I ran it off the road near the bottom of a hill because the road was slick. As a result, the rocks, concrete, and a tree knocked off the passenger-side mirror, dented and scratched the passenger-side door, scratched the passenger-side headlight, scratched the rear bumper in a few places, broke out both fog lights and broke part of the front bumper. Since then I've fixed the headlight, mirror, foglights, and front bumper. The rear bumper is also fixed thanks to a rear end collision on June 18th, 2010. Overall, I've only had two mechanical problems with the car. The thermostat housing broke (because it was made of plastic), so I upgraded it to a metal one from an '04 Aveo. In May 2012, a timing pulley broke causing valve damage (among other things), though this has also been fixed. It currently has about 114,000 miles on it. Routine Maintenance The spark plugs were replaced in '09. The thermostat was replaced and the thermostat housing upgraded in '09 or '10. The timing belt, water pump, idler pulley belts, and antifreeze were replaced August 6, 2010 as a regular tune up when the car had 87,000 miles on it. The battery was replaced in '10 or '11 (bad cell). The timing belt and pulleys were replaced again at 110,000 miles, as well as the AC compressor belt and radiator. The shocks, struts, and seal around the passenger-side stub axle were replaced (this was a BIG PAIN) on September 8, 2012 at about 114,000 miles. The most recent oil filter change (and 1 quart syntetic oil add) was in August '12 at about 113,000 miles. The most recent tire change was at 114,500 miles and included a 4-wheel balance and alignment. Current Projects1.) Parting out a 2001 Daewoo Lanos Sport, using certain parts for my own Lanos. I have transplanted the leather seats into my car. I sold the car for $100.00 to a place that buys metal in Fayetteville, AR. I've kept all of the important parts though, the ones people have been interested in buying, including the interior. The second pic is me following it to the metal place in my Lanos.
