1999 Vauxhall Corsa Sport 1.4 16v - 90bhp from UK and Ireland
Insurance friendly GSi alternative
Apart from a very annoying buzzing sound, coming from just above the dashboard, nothing - touch wood!
Impressive 90bhp engine, gives 60 in 10.5secs and a top speed of 112mph (these are manufacturers figures, more like 120mph).
My car is totally standard. Handling is not brilliant, body roll on corners and snaking on high speed braking.
Looks are clean and sporty, however it's is a bit cutesy.
No sideskirts, no fogs and three spoke alloys. Not the best looking car on the road!
However equipment levels are very generous - air con, alarm, electric heated mirrors, CD player electric windows, all as standard.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
