2001 Opel Corsa Sport 1.4
Unreliable small car
Power steering acting up.
Engine oil kept disappearing.
Lambda sensor failed.
I had the car less than a year. I liked the styling, the sporty seats and the way it handled. It was stable on the motorway for such a small car. The suspension was quite hard, but it was the Sport model so that's to be expected.
Unfortunately, the problems I had took the shine out of the ownership. The electric power steering was very strange. It seemed to have a mind of its own. The alternator started to whine, then died. Sometimes the car started kangarooing like crazy for no apparent reason. It also used a lot of oil, about 1 litre/1000km's. Rather noisy, too, especially on the motorway.
A nice enough car, but let down by poor electrics and many mechanical niggles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
