        tbh i think with these corsa.s its luck of the draw ive had nothin but problems with mine but there are alot of people who have had no problems at all dont forget you should get at least a years warranty with it so any problems will be fixed for free they are a great little car and as long as they are looked after allowed to warm up and warm down u shoudlnt really have to much trouble but its like any car really they all have they're faults take one for a test drive and see what you think

          rich mate you just made my day Im glad you linkied the thread In answer to the OPs question, yes you should get one. They look good, cost very little, go like stink and surprise most people. As above and in the thread linked, every car has its problems but they are recognised and warranty fixed so dont be put off.

              Get one. You only live once. All cars have problems/faults but if looked after you can try to avoid causing problems. You get warranty and the option to extend if required.

                If you are buying second hand make sure it has a full vx service history and try to make sure it has been kept 100% standard since it left the factory.

                From one of my other posts:

                As some of you know I work for GM/Vauxhall, by chance in work the other day I got talking to one of the engineers, I told him about this forum and some of the problems people were posting about, he straight away said "Miss use...let it warm up properly and don't take it to the red line every time you take it out..." I mentioned mods and he just smirked and said "engine mods are like body builders using steroids, eventually something gives".
                No offence to the younger drivers on here, but some (not all) younger drivers just rag the ti*s off their cars everywhere they go and then complain when something breaks! As a lot of owners are younger buy with care.

                I can't really comment on mine, as I've only had it 3 weeks and it's a 10 plate, it only had 7 mile on the clock when I picked it up

                      mate if your worried about random problems then dont drive, dont buy any car, dont ever touch one........... every car is different, every car has different common faults but once they are sorted when you buy it you usually dont get them again

                      just make sure you give the car a good check when buying it
