What do you want from an estate car? If, as many increasingly younger buyers do, want a stylish, sleek and maybe not-so-practical 'sportwagon' then the Daewoo Nubira estate probably won't appeal. If, on the other hand, you're after a car that's tough, inexpensive and will haul plenty of gear without complaint, the Daewoo makes an interesting alternative to more dilapidated fare. You should be able to pick something up with an acceptably modern number plate for less than you might expect.
The impressive three years free servicing offer on new models is invalidated unless bought through a Daewoo retail centre, unlike the AA cover and warranty for the same period.
