I drive an Opel Corsa Lite (2005) in silver. Apart from the steering vibration between 95km/h and 105km/h, it's an absolute pleasure owning this vehicle. It's now done 165117kms and still goes like the day I bought it. It's a pity your Corsa has given you so many problems. My brother has one (white), my girlfriend has one (black), her best friend has one (blue), and we all agree it's a great little car.

2005 Opel Corsa Corsa B 1.2L petrol from Albania


Good for the design purpose


In 2005 I bought an Opel Corsa 1.2L petrol brand new for my mother.

Easytronic transmission is really a mess. The car has never been used out of the city, and still have that problem while shifting gears.

It is really bad.

General Comments:

The car is really good for old women who cannot drive out of the city. If you use it for a long journey, it might be dangerous.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
