There's a Daewoo for sale in Texas with 75 actual miles
A brand-new time capsule
Daewoo began selling cars in the US in late 1998, going bankrupt soon after. Their cars were known for being mediocre and having poor build quality. Despite having over 500 dealers, falling sales caused the brand's sudden departure in early 2002.
A bad reputation, poor quality, massive depreciation, and difficult servicing have caused most of the 170,000 cars to disappear. However, the brand has a small group of enthusiasts that preserve the ones left. I'm one of them, not because their cars were particularly good, but because they've become extremely rare and obscure.
As a result, I was enthralled to find this mid-level Leganza SE with just 75 actual miles listed for sale on AutoTrader. Curious as to how this could possibly be, I called the seller and asked where he got it from. He said that he got it from a former Daewoo dealer in Florida that kept the car in a garage for eighteen years, making it a real time capsule.
