I dont usually write anything on the internet, I find its for people who like to argue, and I dont but... 3 out of 5 for THIS car!! Plastic quality? sloppy gearchange?? I understand every one to themselves but really what car did you guys drive. Am 19 and I was lucky enough to have the chance to buy a new car. And the choice is incredibly, new corsa, new fiesta, new clio, polo, ibiza it goes on, so parting with a great amount of cash, i looked at all of them. All fell short at the mark am afraid, the new Corsa is really quiet badly put together which shocked me, and the fiesta lacked grunt, new clio nice but its french, polo is a fabia, and if I had to be shot the fabia is much better screwed together, and has more space. The engine is the same as the late vrs but minus 1cylinder, its charcter is very much like the old vrs, as my dad used to own on! Insurance is cheap, Tax is £35 and 53mpg with a good amount of right foot action! I could go on but 1,500 characters is not enough. Also not sure on the sloppy gearchange I Could rant about that, but i shall not, am not going to spend anymore time, saying how epic this little car is, infact am going out, to drive is, with its poor plastics, bad engine, sloppy gearchange, ugly looks and bad badge. lucky for me ive not got that fabia, ive got a truly wonderful one!
