I bought my combo at 3years old with just 15k on the clock and extensive service history. It had problems starting from then. It immobilized itself at needed £600 of second hand parts(ecu and all that) Cam chain snapped, cost me £500. Just been told today, needs 4 injectors and pressure fuel pump has leak, quoted £1100 so its getting scrapped with just 50k on the clock. Before this I had a vivaro with similar injector problems and a bill for £3800 and was just out of warranty. I WILL... (read more)

i bought a combo 1.3cdti on a 05 plate with 81k on it,if you drive down the motorway at 60mph you would get 600 miles out of a tank of 52 litres which is great. the bad bits were that the gear linkege snapped,the water pump broke,i had water coming through into the cab on the floor on the drivers side and through the glove box on the passenger side,the central locking had a mind of its own. finally after 2 years the engine blew up after 116k and it went to the scrapyard if the build quality...

Had a 2006 Combo for 3 years and replaced the EGR valve, no other problems. Had a fight with a truck and lost so I bought a 2009 Combo with 12k on it and am driving it since with 1 sensor fault (€120 inc fitting) and it now has 108k on it. Oil and filter changed every 6k, other than that great little van and great on fuel. (read more)

The radio, as written previously does come on at high volume because the poster has failed to reset the thing to whatever volume he prefers. Read the manual before rushing to judgment. Ggggggreat mpg. Average comfort (it is a van after all). Tons of space (made to accomodate a Europallet).Electronic assisted steering was new to me and felt a little light at first until I got used to it.Pleased the oil filter is easy to get at. Don't use the turbo much as I tend to drive it very easy but it... (read more)

For the review above, if you want the map light on press the headlight knob in, goes to show how little you know your van!!!!!!!! So please ignore his review.
Had this van for 6 months, drives well, very comfortable ( bearing in mind it is a van not a car) Hasn't let me down and feels solid and robust. It is easy to drive and everyone who has used it has said they want one. Cup holder holds my drinks fine.
Would recommend to anyone!

This is the most uncomfortable vehicle I have ever driven. The suspension is so hard I thought it was broken. The Vauxhall garage confirmed that it's supposed to be like this, due to the Corsa chasis underneath (if it had any suspension it would snap the van on the first speed bump). The cup holder spills your drink behind the seats as soon as you accelerate, the map light will only come on when you open the door and it is impossible to stretch your legs fully out, even with the seat all the...
