      theres one or two commonish faults i'll let the corsa boys fill you in but main ones iirc are aircon pipe(i think or something aircon related),wheelbearings, and a few piston 4 failures off the top of my head

        since ive had my corsa, my wheel bearings, my air con pipe and now just this last week, my valves ar very sticky due to carbonization and its gonna take vx about 6 hours to strip the engine, clean the valves and put it back again. worst bit about it is all the problems have been covered under warrenty but this being the biggest job of them all and surprise surprise its not covered because its classes as general wear and tear.

        if anyone noes of any other problems please would you let me no

                Common faults I've heard about are wheel bearings, air con pipes cracking. Apparently vauxhall have re-designed these components and now aren't to bad.
                Leaking radiators is another so check coolant levels regulary.
                On the positive side though, I've had my corsa VXR for 6 months and it's a 58 plate. It has never skipped a beat.
                No problems at all.

                  All makes and models have common faults, corsa vxr ones seem to be mentioned above, the only other is the squeaky brakes!!!

                      Flexing of the B pillar creating dimples in roof. Cracked wing mirrors?

                        Wiper linkages, causing the wipers to go crazy n hit the pillar. (when turned on)
