2004 Opel Corsa 1.2 from Greece
The Easytronic gear selection system after certain revs stalled and the engine died out.
After repairing it the same thing continued to happen only this time even when I reversed, or when the car was doing 100 kilometers per hour.
The car looked nice and comfortable and easy to drive especially with the Easytronic gearbox system. I only chose that system because my other car is automatic and is very comfortable to drive in traffic. The Easytronic system is not working at all properly and it is extremely dangerous to drive at 100 + and suddenly realise that the engine turns off automatically.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

2 words for the Opel Corsa - 'Money Pit'.
Bought a 2004 two years ago, and so far switches have gone and had to be replaced, costing around €70 altogether.
It was recalled back to the garage cos something was wrong with the brakes!
The engine went; had to wait 8 months (yes 8!) to find a new workable one (cost €800 for the engine alone). Only had it back 20 days and the gearbox is gone! I am a mother who drives my child around in this, so I am not driving the hell out of it! Can't wait to get rid of it. Any takers??
