1996 Chevrolet Corsa GLS 1.6 MPFI


A very reliable, economical city car


Nothing of importance, I had to replace the ventilator fan, but was for an incidental liquid spilling. No more has gone wrong with the car.

General Comments:

It is a reliable and very commercial car, is safe, it is not much comfortable as other cars, but is reliable, economical, the 1.3i engine is very powerful and has a good acceleration, it accelerates 0 - 100km/h in 8 seconds. Going up to the hills the car has a good performance. The corsa is a durable car, well-built, in Colombia was the more representative car in dealer's sales in 2001.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The 0 to 100 km per hour times are a lie, it takes about 12 seconds to do that, unless you made some serious modifications to this car.

0 to 100 in 8 with a 1300 engine?, I don't believe it, I have a 1600, 92 Hp, and it took more than 10 seconds. (I've never done the acceleration test, but I'm pretty sure about it). Maybe a 16-valve 1.3i engine could do it, but I believe that there are not 16v engines for the Corsa.

My Corsica can do that, but my motor has been rebuilt and has a turbocharger and a performance chip. So unless it has 187 horsepower like mine, I seriously don't believe it.
