Great value hot hatch
Absolutely nothing at all. It's been bullet-proof so far.
Barina SRi (Opel Corsa SRi)
Great looking little car. It's quick, although sometimes feels a lot quicker some days than others.
Very reliable, is faultless except for rattling seatbelt clips.
Excellent looking interior, easy-to-use stereo and steering wheel mounted controls, plus cruise control.
Seats can sometimes feel a bit hard on long trips.
A/C can lack of bit of chill on excessive hot days (35c+).
Low front spoiler is hard to live with, need to be extra careful pulling into driveways or parking in bays with a gutter in front.
Overall a great little hatch, underestimated by many.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
