Not enough boot or interior space to store things

Introduction Yesterday my wife and I said goodbye to the first brand new car we ever bought, our trusty and reliable Vauxhall Corsa Breeze. Having owned the car for 3 years since we bought it in 2008 and putting every single mile on its clock apart from the 13 delivery miles we collected it with...

No power steering, Basic equipment

In a special tribute review, I have decided to write about our “Old Family Friend”. This car has served us over the last seven years, given us miles and miles of trouble free motoring. It was bought as a basic town car, and it has done its job very well over it’s time. Even when Mum went and...

~ CONNIE IS THE WINNER ~ I’ve had my baby for about eight months now and love it. Connie my Corsa came from a Hartwell’s garage in Bath and I purchased it back in March this year. After passing my driving test in early march I was anxious to get my first car. To be honest I never really liked...

Reliability, poor switch gear

The Vauxhall Corsa has been with us since the early 1990s when it replaced the old Vauxhall Nova. In that time the Corsa has always been a big seller in the UK probably down to the fact that its good looking, appeals to all generations, it’s cheap to run & insure & holds its value quite well. I...

The Corsa is one of the small car offerings from Vauxhall/Opel. I say Vauxhall/Opel as it is only in the UK that it is marketed as Vauxhall and as Opel throughout the rest of Europe. They are one of Germany's oldest car manufacturers (1863) and manufactured their first motor vehicle in 1899...

After driving a (classic) Mini for three years, it was time for a change to something a little more practical (and reliable). After being given some car catalogues, I decided on the Corsa, so off I went to my nearest Vauxhall dealer to nose round the showroom full of shiny new cars. After almost...

The first Corsa I ever drove was an Opel (I don't think there was a British version then) in Gran Canaria in 1991. Nine years later, I was looking for a small, economical runabout and remembered the Corsa. I test drove a Vauxhall Club and discovered a few built-in problems but decided I could...

“Economically car”

published 20/10/2004

quite and nice performance.

Style

What things have gone wrong with the car? No faults to report. Aircon clunks when turned on, but settles down after a few seconds. General comments? I was never a Vauxhall fan until I got my Astra about 2 years ago. The Astra was brilliant, but my job has moved me into working in the city centre...

INTRODUCTION Vauxhall Man strikes again! After 6 years and one month, we finally decided to part company with our rather good little Vauxhall Corsa ‘Sport’ (See my previous Op); and after the usual tramp around the showrooms we have replaced it with... another Vauxhall Corsa –...

This car claims to be a lot of things. It claims that it is a supermini, that it can do 43 miles to the gallon and that it is rather sporty. But this car is sporty like Victoria Beckham is a natural blonde. It's not. And that's just the tip of it's false-claiming iceburg. A Supermini is a car...

I have lived with my 54 plate Corsa for the last year so I thought it was about time I wrote something about it. I call it the baby because I also have a Rover Coupe VVC but needed something small and efficient for my daily commute, enter the Corsa 1.2 Sxi. I bought it last Sept for £6499 from a...

“Cool and Classy Corsa”

Small but perfectly formed

None

If you’d asked me six months ago, what car I have, I would have replied: “A blue one.” Now if you ask the same question, you’d get something along the lines of: “A 3 door Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 Sxi with twin airbags….” Admittedly, I am not an expert on speed, revs per minute (or whatever they are) or...
