2003 Opel Corsa Excellence 1.2 from Greece
Generally good, but very disappointing gearbox
Have had continuous trouble with the gear box (which my son, who purchased the same car one month after me, also has.) Often unable to engage first gear, especially first thing in the morning.
Indicator lights flash erratically, most times too quickly, sometimes correctly. Seems to depend on the temperature outside. None of the bulbs need changing, but the Opel representative is unable to find and fix the problem permanently.
Apart from the above problems, like the feel of the car, it is just the right size for a town with very narrow streets and few parking places.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
