“Good on fuel”

Written on: 11/10/2012

Ideal car for learner or someone who's just passed their test. Very low insurance as is only a group 1e and is brilliant on fuel. I've owned one for about 8 months now and i average about 45mpg, but on a run you can easily get 50+mpg. The car is very slow at pulling away but it's not made for speed, once it's up to speed it rides comfortably and quietly at 70mph. However, as with most Vauxhalls the suspension is extremely bouncy and could probably leave you feeling seasick on bumpy roads. Top… Read Full Review

“1997 Corsa 1.0 12v LS ”

Written on: 15/01/2010

1997 Corsa 1.0 12v LS

Would make an ideal first car or a cheap run around given todays petrol prices. I've owned several 1.2 8v corsas and find my current 1.0 12v better in performance, reliability and fuel consumption.

The car is surprisingly nippy for a 1.0 litre, comfortably and quietly pulls at over 70, and I was expecting a lot less from it, especially with it being a 3 cylinder. Very roomy inside for a small 3 door hatchback, comfortably fits 4 adults even though there are 5 seats.

The… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/06/2009

I've owned my Vauxhall Corsa 1.0 12v litre now for 3 months and find fuel consumption around 48 mpg. As for its performance it cruises easy on motorways with no strain at all, it struggles up banks a little but it's solid and doesn't rattle or vibrate like some new cars I've owned… Read Full Review

“Generally a poor car, iv only had my Vauxhall Corsa...”

Written on: 17/03/2009 by leonjah90 (1 review written)

Generally a poor car, iv only had my Vauxhall Corsa for a few months and i want rid already. Due to its 3 cylinder engine, this causes the timing to be unbalanced which affects the engines performance. The car is also a basic model with most of the fancy extras taken away such as power steering and the electronic computer, this reduces the weight of the car which makes the car seem faster but also makes it the handling poor. The fuel consumption is awful, i find myself filling up at the petrol… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/04/2008 by sue d (1 review written)

I have a 2002 Vauxhall Corsa which has cause me nothing but trouble. I have had the gear box linkage replaced, the head gaskett done 2 years ago and it has had a fuse box fault causing the immobiliser to kick in (no one has ever been able to find out why) and now with just 73,000 on the clock the head gaskett has gone again and I have been advised not to spend any more money on it. Anybody else had similar problems?… Read Full Review

I have a 2004 Corsa 1.2 16v and have just been told that i need a new steering rack and diff gearbox after just 23,000 miles- my mechanic guesses at poor maintenance from my vauxhall servicing. I am never buying a vauxhall again.

J1509's Response to sue d's Review

Written on: 27/08/2012

I've had my car since 2002. On the whole its served me well considering I've only had one service. More recently one of the cylinder keeps blowing and its been replaced twice going for a third. My head gaskett also went last year. The electrics are playing up which means I have a constant engine sign on. There may well be a gear linkage problem as when changing gears something popped and then the cylinder went
