hey, don't try to get a cielo. its out of production. very difficult to get spares. very very difficult to maintain. can't revv hard. a great gas guzzler.

basically, not an enthusiast's car.
( no offence to daewoo & cielo lovers.)

whichever cielo u buy , it has to be in the range of 40000 to 75000(max), no matter how good accessories are there in th car.
also check for rust on the car. the car is highly prone to dust.

try if u find a good condition Nexia , its much better.

Hey TF,try considering Astra too.As both these cars fall in the same league.And IMO,Opel is much better overall.

Astra is definately more comfy but the hardest cr to maintain, and hre spares are priced astronimical, and the parts break down easily , and the car liek cielo is a fuel guzzler.

IMO , bot the cars ae cheap, thats the only positive thing.

esteem's a nice bet. no second thoughts.

go for it, man. u'll never regret it.

btw, if u can afford it, try the new esteem. its much much better with a much lighter price tag.
