  • Yet another "clever" feature I love....

    The windscreen wipers finish their cycle even when you turn the engine off! Most cars just leave them stuck wherever they are, clever Corsa
    Chilli Orange Corsa BURG #009 has left the building. Loved every moment of ownership for the best part of 7 years.

          oooohhhhhhhh the VXR is so much more than just a hot hatch imo - it is so comfortable as an every day car. And Vauxhall have put loads of what I call these "clever" features in, just nice little touches that make your every day life that tad bit easier / nicer. I only realised it did this today. After 3 months the car is still growing on me each day, love it more and more.

          Now here's something I have been meaning to pick people's brains over.....has anyone else realised that when you are going at a very slow speed and you slowly take your foot off the clutch, the car doesn't stall?! It just plodds along at the slowest possible speed for that gear! It's really really weird, you would expect the car to stall as the revs drop, but mine keeps going! It's awesome when you are in traffic and just want to creep along, with no feet on the pedals! Interested to hear if anyone else has noticed this too??

              most cars don't stall (or maybe anything with enough torque) When i was still allowed to drive our vans, i used to let it crawl everywhere in traffic. Easy peasy that way

              (Also used to be able to pulll off from standing without any revs in my corsa c)

              Although as you mention it, the car seems to make it hard to stall when you know you should have. maybe thats just me though.

                  Also the Corsas have little teeth things on the clutch pedal so when your on a slight hill you can just hold it with the clutch without stalling The other thing i found out was the petrol filler flap has a little clip on the inside so when you unscrew the cap you can just pop it onto the flap, ive used it ever since i found out

                    Yeah you expect it to stall and it doesn't. I know I had to keep my foot on the left pedal in my 182 or it would have cut out! Wonder if it's a thing most new cars have now?

                              Do you still have your OPC or do you have the 250 yet?!
