Waste of money, should have got a Kia LOL
Not so much has gone wrong, but the problems I have are getting bad MPG, and the doors leave black marks on the side skirts when it rains, and runs through the doors.
Well I sold my old trusty Jazz as I was looking for a newer car, saw the new 2011 Corsa, and thought it looked nice. I managed to get a 1.2 Limited Edition in red with black roof and 17 inch wheels for £11,999. Worst mistake of my life; the Vauxhall dealers are terrible.
On to the car; it looks nice, looks well built, but inside it's a sea of plastics and cheap materials, which rattle already after only 1500 miles.
The ride is harsh, but it feels stable and planted nice through the corners. The steering is vague, and you feel disconnected from the car.
The engine. I got the 1.2 Ecotec for obvious reasons; petrol in UK is stupidly high now, and I thought I was making the right decision, but to be honest I'm averaging 30mpg. I have told Vauxhall, who said that's terrible, but are yet to offer any help. My Jazz was getting 40+ mpg.
All in all, stay clear of the Corsa. There are a lot of better cars on the market now.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
