    Looks nice, goes well, not much space in the back but who cares? It's a young person's car, not for families.

    I picked up my new Corsa 1.8 SRi three days ago, and I love it! This is my second Corsa, the first being a 1.4 SRi. I just had to have the 1.8 - it's fun and nippy. I chose the Black Sapphire - very cool and trendy and it certainly turns heads!

    My car

    I am talking about the 1.2 Corsa semi-auto Comfort model, with a 2002 reg. The car is generally fine to drive. But when left in auto mode, the gear changes are a bit odd in that the car slows between changes and you think the engine has cut out.

    It picks up again but spoils the acceleration, which is quite brisk otherwise. The engine is very quiet on tick over and also very smooth - no vibration whatsoever. It's much smoother than my 216 Rover. The ride is a bit firm but handling good. I think the power steering though is too sensitive and light. Braking is very powerful though and you have to be careful in slippery conditions. Overall a good and nippy small car.
