    My car

    This is a good car to drive, but problems do arise, I have had problems with gear linkages, wipers (not turning off - having to turn engine off for wipers to stop)

    This car is also expensive on Tax, £140 per year, considering my sister has a 1.2 04 plate Corsa design and her tax is £100 per year. Her car is also more fuel efficient.

    Potential buyers of corsa's be aware of this! check the tax before you buy!!!

    My car

    i had the 1.2 16v sxi corsa on a 51 plate and found it to be a good car handled well and not bad speed i ended up getting the 1.4 16v sri on a 54 plate and found it to be worse than the 1.2 on handling as it seemed to be lighter than the 1.2 on the front end dunno if it was becouse of the xtra power or if it was bad design? but it had good speed and done well. it just a shame the handling and the interior let it down quite a bit hence why i have give it 3 stars

    My car

    My mum's had a corsa for the last 2 years now, and so far had no major problems.

    Managed to knock a wire out of place down at the sailing marina last summer, but this was fixed in less than an hour and under warranty.

    To begin with boot seemed small, however my fox terrier cross has plenty of room. Overall a very nice and economical little car.

    My car

    I bought this car secondhand. It was, to be blunt, the biggest bag of rubbish i've ever had in my life! I had a 3 door plain corsa, nothing fancy. It broke down on me 3 times in 3 months and to top it off, it caught fire while I was driving it. I've just bought a Ford Ka and I hope this is better! I've read reviews and its looking good.
