It's got city car written all over it
Engine ignition went wrong.
Tracking was out and still is.
Breaks are uneven, and you some times end up on the other side of road when braking hard!!!
Washer jets have broke.
CD player broke.
Front trim is missing from the dealer.
Engine ticks like an old Ford Fiesta.
This car is definitely suited for city driving, as it is fast off the line for a 1.2.
If you show this car a country road, it gets confused and the biggest problem shows up - its wallowy handling (probably because it is made by an American car maker, GM). A boat would probably handle better.
The suspension is so soft, but the handling is fairly predictable. If pushed too hard, it will under-steer and you can control it with the throttle.
If you want a car to race your mates in, go for a Pug 106 or Citroen Saxo. They may fall apart because they are french, but at least they go round corners.
A Vauxhall Corsa does not handle like it is on rails.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
