I recently bought my first corsa which is an 03 1.4 Sri. Absolutely love the car and in all very happy but noticed after like a week of buying the car the egr valve was faulty, easily remedied by blanking it off with a plate bought on eBay. 5 quid. Still feels slightly laboured when accelerating. Wonder if expecting too much but as I read other reviews on the car people seem to shout out about performance of this car and I'm just not seeing it. Don't get me wrong it's not proper slow but... (read more)

i've had 125mph, without red-linning it. easily kept within around 3 car lengths to a 1.6sport 16v corsa. so not that bad.
ideal first car to whip around. (read more)

Had this car a while now and it doesn't always get driven lightly. I've had to change the water pump and the front discs and a track rod end in the time I've owned it. Nothing else apart from oil and petrol. It's only played up once when the EGR valve got bunged up but that's an easy fix, drive 67 miles in 1 hour. :) Or you could clean the valve with carb cleaner. Have around 115 on the clock, 0-60 dunno but I smoked a 1.8 vectra. Engine still is quiet as the day I got it. Overall I'm very... (read more)

Ive had my 1.4 SRi twinport since feb now! I had it for my first car and its brilliant! Reasonably quick due to having 90 BHP! Everyone i know says it looks soo much better than their corsa's and i agree with them. The only problem i have is its quite expensive on insurance as im only 17. Other than that i cant fault it! it is reasonably economical as im getting 28 MPG out of it! (read more)

My Corsa SRi is a 1.4 16v, with a Tigra 1.6 16v head. The only other "performance" modifications are a K&N filter and a backbox. My friend has a Peugeot 106 with a Saxo VTR conversion and 1.1 gearbox, and the Corsa can eat it alive. While I've had the car it has seen 120 mph but it didn't have anything left. This is the fastest SRi in my area and leaves the 1.4 16v sports standing too. (read more)

I'd definitely buy a Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 SRi if I couldn't afford a Ford fiesta Zetec S or a 106 Quiksilver. Its a great little run around and great fun to drive (apart from the gearbox). Don't pay over £1200 for one though - they're not really worth that much any more when newer cars are taking the throne. Make sure the miles on the clock are not over 80,000 - 90,000 even if the person selling tells you its starts first time, its only a matter of time before thing start going PING. Overall I...

WOW what a car.
I have down sized from a 2.0 Turbo Signum, and was a little apprehensive, but I was wrong to do so. This Vauxhall Corsa takes me back to when I had a Nova 1.4i SRI and that was a stonker.
I can't really fault the car apart from the drums on the back. Rear leg room is good for a small car, and the boot space seems to be bigger than that of the Signum (useable space any way)
I could do with a 6th gear as it does seem to get a little noisey at 85+ mph, but hey, who's... (read more)

We have a Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 SRi. We bought this car new late 2000. We thought it would be slow and boring to drive because of the small engine. But... we were wrong. the car has fantastic handling and great acceleration for a 1.4 16v which only pumps out 88 BHP. First gear is a very short giving the car the initial speed burst and alot of wheel spin if to many revs. Fifth gear is great from 70 - 100+ the car could do with an extra gear beacuse at 80MPH the engine is a little noisy. It is so... (read more)

The Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 SRi was very suprising, it has a lot of power considering it is only a 1.4, and can keep up and beat a 1.6 Mini Cooper.
Inside is spacious and can fit 4 adults comfortably. The boot is larger than expected can be made slight bigger by moving the back seat abit forward.
Would recommend to any one looking for a sporty car which is cheap to run.
This would have to be the perfect first car for male or female. (read more)

What can I say? The Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 Sri is the perfect small car, got loads of friends who ride these and they are all very satisfied.
The SRi is the one to get, mod it up and watch it go as you can destroy the chavs in their little Citroen Saxo's...
Other good points about the old Corsa include the cheap running costs, insurance is low, and these things are damn economical.
Well worth the money and this has got to be Vauxhall's most popular model. I don't have one myself, but if I was... (read more)

Received the Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 SRi car on Friday from Availablecar.com in Castle Donnington and its an absolute cracker for £8k. Great traction and performance for a 1.4 car with all the trimmings. Check out any Vauxhall/NetworkQ sites and this is a bargain, and there are more to be found at similar sites.

Ive had this Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 SRi car about a week now, its a black 1.4sri twinport which is about 7 months old (registered April 2004) and I absolutly love it. Its very very quick for its engine size and can beat a lot of cars off the lights. Ok it only has a top speed of 118mph but who really needs to go that fast annyway.
The cabin is well laid out and very clean. The white sports dials and metal racing pedals really set the car off.

I burt a mint m reg Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 SRi 8 valve a few months back.the 8 valve is better than the 16v as the engines stronger and easy to gain more bhp. The 16v has valve problems amongst its many others. After owning it for 15 minutes the radiator started leaking and the starter motor had gone. Not a good start, I sorted both the next day - cost just $100 for a brand new motor and radiator including fitting. After that I had no problems.
