1996 Vauxhall Corsa Combo Van 1.7D
Ugly, but useful
Van-doors lock broken.
Ignition lock broke.
Pre-heating system broke.
Good work horse, reasonable on diesel.
Engine is agricultural, clattering away in front of you. Give it some revs and it sounds like a canal boat about to go critical.
Despite based on the shopping cart Corsa, it's actually fairly roomy for a van.
Good load space.
Ugly as sin with fat sides like a guppy, but that just makes it all the more useful.
Good in a crash. Mine is currently a write-off on the drive, crashed head on into a tree after losing control in the wet, not a scratch on me.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
