Ditto the above really.

Been happy enough with mine so far, no problems yet anyway!

They go alright for a 1.2 but its hardly likely to set the world on fire. Handling is much improved once lowered too.

It's a cool small car but I won't say it was nippy. I've put in a new back box and K&N filter but it's still quite slow. Next step is to replace the K&N with the old drilled airbox, then reset the ECU to see if that makes a difference.

Got my 1.2i SXi this morning and its smart as FCUK.....

Its nippy and looks really good..... don't hesitate just buy one.

I find the handling very responsive, and the SXI seats are very comfy.....

Take a look at my Garage for interior and exterior pics..... I took them today so they are fresh

This is my Second Corsa C, before this i had a Black Sxi. This is an Sxi btw.

I wouldn't bother with the 1.4 i'd settle with the 1.2 or go the full way and get the 1.8

Why have you had 2, what was wrong with the first one....

Also have you thought about removing the door things (can't think of the word)... Think it would look good..... would do a photoshop but dont know how to remove them and then make it look good... anyone??

My missus got a 1.2sxi and she loves it, shes had fiestas and clios before now both with 1.4 engines and she reckons the Corsa is more responsive and better to drive.

Good thing about them is that from new they look no different from an SRi.

First year

1st Trip: Wippers needed replacing after 2 months

2nd trip: squeeky clutch. clutch pedal assembly had to be rebuilt and greased

3rd Trip: Brakes squeled. new rear wheel cylinder needed. original leeking

Second Year

4th Trip: Heater only worked on speed four. Coil was broken so new was ordered. had to wait for part. fixed eventually

5th trip: Steering coloum rattles. New lower cloum needed

6th Trip: Central locking started unlocking itself. Needed new drivers door solinoid. old one had broke

7th Trip: Main beem stopped working on passenger side headlight. Fuse fine. Bulb fine. wiring at fault.

things i havent taken it back for cause i cant be bothered: Fog lights show damp, and rear pasanger light holds water.

It now rattles lots. i've never changed anything on it and cant be bothered with it any more.

I got rid of my first one cos it had done 32k miles, and i fancied a change. I don't wanna remove the rub strips cos it makes the doors look very big if u do that.

iv had a few probs with mine but nothing major, Squeeking brakes (its only just started and i getting sorted this week)

Had the car 9 months and am very happy with it, the car is by no means fast but nippy it certainly is, really picks up at 3000+ revs and is alot quicker then most 1.2's (although u dont buy a 1.2 for speed)!!
