Summary:

Cheap to drive, fun to handle...

Faults:

Nothing.

Just a very funny drive. The 1.4i engine is very awake, and accelerates quite well. Reaches 150 km/h without pain, after wards the car starts to shake a bit.

General Comments:

Simple, but reliable.

Good seats for the size and nice performance. Good economy. Dashboard & interior improved quite a lot since model 1990+. 5-gear box gives more 'silence' in the interior.

Rust? A touch of typical 'Opelness'. The well-known places, but not serious at all. Maybe the Corsa is more strong than the Astra and Calibra?

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
