1990 Vauxhall Corsa Review

1990 Vauxhall Corsa GSi 2.0 16v sfi from UK and Ireland

Year of manufacture1990
Engine and transmission 2.0 16v sfi Manual

Summary:

Very good engines. The best Vauxhall have ever made

General Comments:

The redtop engine will last forever if is well serviced with good oil. I've had 6 Corsas with redtops in. I own one now, and only mods it has are an air filter, exhaust, and ported and polished throttle body, and I drive it like I stole it. I've outrun Impreza Turbos, a Lexus is200 and the engine just laughs at me as my mates 2.0 8v wouldn't pull him out of bed.

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

I didn't know they made Corsa's in 1990. You did well to outrun a Impreza, but then again a Corsa with 150bhp+ should be pretty quick.

I would imagine with those mods it would have a fair bit more than 150 bhp.

Corsas are heavy; I had one. They don't handle and have drums on the back.
