Summary:

Performs like a turtle!

Faults:

I have had this car only few months, so is too early for problems to happen..

General Comments:

I previously had a Corsa C 1.3 CDTi; same engine, but with only 70hp. It was old, but had rocket acceleration and low fuel consumption.

This one has 90hp, a 6 level gearbox and it's a lemon! A turtle. No power, no spirit. Acceleration is pathetic, and I find this car even dangerous on roads, due its lack of power.

It has nothing to do with the Corsa C, it has about 200 kg more, it is oversized, heavy and has bad visibility in the rear.

I consider I made a big mistake buying this car, it's a real disappointment.

Performance is a bad joke.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Maybe you are not used to driving this car yet.

If you look at the specifications, you can see that the Corsa D diesel is a lot faster than the Corsa C diesel.

I agree it is slow to drive off from a standing start, unless you rev it up to 2500rpm, but generally it's pretty good performer. If you need to pass out, drop 2 gears, and it will go like a snot!
