Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Vauxhall Corsa van?
There are just two trim levels options available on the Corsvan, the first of which is appropriately called Corsavan, and the other Sportive.
The base model vehicle is well-equipped and gets Bluetooth, DAB radio, six airbags, electric windows, electric mirrors, tyre pressure monitoring and speed sensitive steering as standard.
Also available is a Technical Pack, which includes forward collision alert, lane departure warning, rear parking camera, traffic sign recognition and a following distance warning indicator.
What are the most common problems with a used Vauxhall Corsa van?
The Vauxhall Corsavan was conceived as a load-lugger for the city, so the first thing to check is for any body dents or scratches. If it is fitted with alloy wheels check that they haven't been excessively kerbed, too.
Steering rack may fracture
Due to a problem with the manufacturing process of the steering rack, the steering gear might break under load – ie. when manoeuvring at low speed. This affects cars made between 18 November 2014 and 28 January 2015, so your Vauxhall dealer will be able to check the build date of the steering rack against this to work out if it needs to be replaced.
