I done about 26000 miles. hard to get in first and secound. knocking noise from steering. waiting new steering rack and have been for 3 weeks. and on my 3rd set of breaks i think?? but i did drive it very hard. red line, side ways round abouts, bernouts, hand brakes. so it did very well. now waiting for my astra sxi which should be here by the end of the month

Never had a problem with our one, was as good as gold, no noises, and we gave it some stick too, only had it for 13000 miles though, sold it now, got some decent turbo power.

dannycorsa - I assume u've had a courtesy car when ur corsa's been being worked on ?? not that that's really any compensation tho
