B pillars on car started to crack, common problem on early Corsa's. Fixed free by Vauxhall dealer under six year body warranty, took three days to carry out the work.
Slight leak in the boot, fault found; rear bumper top screw letting water in. Leaks now fixed and been dry since.
Discs and pads just been replaced (87K).
Only had car for four months, covered 4,000 mls, performance OK, but feels a bit slow compared to my old car, Pug 205 GTi. Group 6 insurance cheap though. Replaced standard wheels, fitted 15" six spoke Astra alloys with 195 tyres, big improvement in grip levels and ride quality.
Car has covered 87,000 mls with FSH, still feels tight and fit. Close ratio gearbox makes engine a bit 'revvy' at motorway speeds. Very easy to drive around town though.
Good cheap nippy car, looks best in black.
