  • Corsa VXR advice please!

    Alright chaps new guy here. The missus is after a corsa vxr as she has changed jobs and does around 30m of motorway driving for work 3 days a week. She has a 1.2 intouch model at the minute and is just not very good/comfortable at motorway speeds and surprisingly using a good bit of fuel. She has always wanted a vxr but couldn't get insurance until now. She is just wondering what the economy is like on the motorway? If your sat at 70 what rpm is the car doing at that speed? Please no answers of don't buy the car if your worried about petrol as we aren't because my car is a mk4 golf r32 so we know what to expect we just want to know realistic figures from the owners as you can't always trust manufacturers claims.lol.

    Cheers in advance fellas.

              Is cruise control an optional extra then or standard. We are going for a test drive tomorrow. 58plate, red, with 24k on clock. Is there anything to look out for? Common problems?

                      On the exterior look out for rust where the bumpers meet the bodywork mate.. And make sure the aircon works as the pipes are known to split (now replaced with a hose).. Depends whether your getting a warranty really.

                      Sitting at 70 will be around 2800-3000revs and 3500 by 80.

                        Cheers Mcpaynter. Yeah it is at a dealer and been told it has warranty. We shall check the aircon on the test drive.

                        What rpm does the boost kick
                        In? Sorry if these are noob questions, never owned a turbo car.lol.

                          test out the windscreen wipers on the fastest setting, after i bought mine i noticed the wipers would hit the pillar next to the windscreen. turned out the lickages had died. Repaired under warrenty - no probs.
