2008 Vauxhall Corsa Breeze 1.3 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Poor quality buy, lovely to drive, shame
I have had the car from new for about 9 months now, and have only done 3886 miles.
The problems are incredible, where shall I start?
After about 150 miles or 2 weeks, the window wipers lost their sequence, so I took it back to Vauxhall; they adjusted them, but when I went down the motorway, they banged into the column on the right of my windscreen. Took back again, they adjusted the wipers again, and still they banged into the pillar.
The car also kept stalling, then I had to go back to dealer as I bought the car with first aid kit and triangle, but they were not in the car when I bought it.
I then had this strange problem with the seat going down on its own. Vauxhall didn't understand what was wrong, so the problem is still there now.
Then after about 3 months, I got a recall for the head gasket to be replaced as Vauxhall had fitted the incorrect one. I mentioned the stalling problem and they told me it was probably the head gasket; it was still there afterwards even worse, so I was off to the Vauxhall dealer again. Turns out to be the throttle position sensor switch faulty.
I took the car back to a different dealer and they replaced the wiper motor and linkage, complete cost about £260, thank god it's under the warranty.
Now after 9 months, the window wipers have gone again for the second time. Really getting fed up with the car and will never buy a Vauxhall again, ever. Shame as I have had second hand Vauxhalls all my life.
One good thing I can say about the dealers is that they repair the problems without too much agro. But not too sure if they will fix the wipers again.
The quality is very very poor, don't buy one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
