The job of the car's transmission system is to transmit the power made in the engine to the wheels of the car and consists of the clutch, gearbox, drive shaft, universal joints, rear axle and wheel. There are two types of gearbox transmission; manual and automatic.
The Daewoo <model> manual transmission gearbox comes into play by enabling the driver to select the right gear for the speed the car is travelling at, ensuring the engine can function as efficiently as possible. In a manual transmission gearbox the driver controls the gears manually by releasing the accelerator pedal whilst pressing the clutch foot pedal and engaging the correct gear for the driving conditions and speed. Then the clutch is released and pressure reapplied on the accelerator. The correct gear is selected by hand, using a gear stick, which operates the gear linkage (a series of levers and rods) enabling the correct gear to be engaged. A driver of a car with a manual gearbox can normally select from between four to six forward gears, one reverse gear and neutral position. The Daewoo <model> manual transmission gearbox is normally attached by bolts to the back of the engine, next to the clutch. The Daewoo <model> manual transmission gearbox tends to be more fuel efficient than automatic or continuously variable gearbox transmissions.
On the other hand, the Daewoo <model> automatic transmission uses both a mechanical and a hydraulic system to change the gears in the car automatically. The Daewoo <model> automatic transmission gearbox is attached to a torque converter which fixes directly to the engine of the car. The Daewoo <model> automatic transmission gearbox comes into play when the driver applies or releases pressure on the accelerator, by automatically selecting and changing the gears for the driver. The Daewoo <model> automatic transmission gearbox selects the right gear for the speed the car is travelling at, adjusting the speed of the car accordingly, whilst ensuring the engine can function as efficiently as possible. This all enables the driver to concentrate on driving without needing to manually change the gears. Generally automatic transmissions have 4 gears consisting of drive, first gear, second gear, park, reverse and neutral. The Daewoo <model> automatic transmission gearbox tends to be less fuel efficient than a manual transmission gearbox but offers the driver a smooth ride and the ease of not having to change gears manually.
The gearbox transmission, although built to last and easy to maintain with proper care and attention, will over time need replacing due to damage caused by heat and friction. In a manual gearbox transmission, careless driving, such as choosing the wrong gear by mistake, can speed up wear and tear and cause damage to the gearbox transmission. If you are experiencing problems when changing gear, it is important to get your car's transmission system looked at by a professional and you may need to replace the Daewoo <model> gearbox transmission.
- Although Daewoo hasn't been featured in as many films as other makes, they do have a memorable appearance in the comedy Pineapple Express with Seth Rogen. The lemon-yellow Daewoo was used in place of the intended Ford Fiesta, and the scene features one of the main characters cheering, "You just got killed by a Daewoo Lanos!"
- The best-selling Daewoo car is the Matiz. This design, based on the 1992 concept car, the Lucciola, was hoped to replace the popularity of the Fiat Cinquecento. It didn't quite do that, but it was Daewoo's bestseller for four years.
- Daewoo translates to 'Great Universe', and the company reputedly cost less than £20k to set up.
- The British public was one of the markets where Daewoo did particularly well. The low prices were clearly appealing, and the new approach to sales was unique enough to stand out. By the end of 1996, Daewoo had managed to secure a 1% share of the UK's new car market.
- It's not a unique idea, but Daewoo took a big risk by not having their own franchised dealers. Throw in the fact that their prices were incredibly transparent, and it starts to become a mystery as to why Daewoo never made the impact they hoped for.
