  • I've tried...really tried!

    ....to be upbeat and positive about my Corsa VXR but after my latest visit to the main dealer I am finding it increasingly difficult. In my 6 months of ownership my car has been to the garage more times that I care to mention for diagnosis and repair.

    Wheel bearings (of course!)
    radiator
    aircon pipes
    abs recall
    electric window regulators
    gearbox cables
    exhaust alignment
    And now the latest....rear suspension bushes!

    It feels like VX is giving me a new car in 100 frustrating weekly installments. Whoever is responsible for Corsa VXR quality control should not just be sacked, they should be shot for gross incompetence! Unless matters improve I would have to either be a masochist or an idiot to keep this car after the warranty expires. (Rant over)

      What year is the car mate, and what mileage have you covered? Seems like a lot of problems even for these cars.

            abs sensor recall
            petrol sender unit
            gear cables
            gearbox
            climate control recall

            And now got a noise i cant quite put my finger on.

            I know how your feeling, as soon as i got the car i was excited as but over the past year i just feel annoyed more then anything else. To drive the car is awesome and yea i love it to pieces but it does try to annoy me when it wants to it.
