We have had our vauxhal corsa that long now it even has a name, mertle. Everything we own ends up with a name. I brought my corsa back in 2002 and paid £3500 for it, it is the 3 cylinder ecotech engine 1 liter well not quite a liter but rounded up to that on my log book. It is a 3 door in red with not a lot of mod cons but has been literaly indestructable. I have brought a few cars since then and kept donating this to my hubby and saying i wanted to get rid of it but keep ending up with it back as it is so reliable. Poor mertle has been barbied for 6 years now and is still going strong. The little 1 liter well 900 and something engine ... Read the complete review

The Corsa is a great car. I bought my first one for £1500 second hand, which is a realistic price for a young person wanting their first vehicle. The insurance isn't too much either and its great for teenage street credibility as opposed to other choices of cars for that budget. I have had my Corsa for almost 8 years now and don't really want to buy a different car. It gets me from A to B in one piece and I must say having driven other makes, that the Corsa feels very safe to drive. Other members of my family have different models of car and it is quite difficult and expensive for them to get replacement parts. Since the Corsa is such a popular ... Read the complete review

My L reg Corsa may not be the most modern car in the world and probably not the fastest, well, deifinitely not the fastest but it is everything you need in a car. I have a Vauxhall Corsa 1.5 GLS TD. It's a 5 door and nippy. As a young man my insurance costs are astronomical as such the fact that it is a group 3 really comes into play. If you are worried about speed or power then don't be. This will beat Peugeot 106's, Citroen Saxo's and Volkswagen Polos newer than it. It tops out at 102mph but it takes a lifetime to get there. It has needed one MOT while I have owned it and it cost less than £200 to fix. I can't rate the reliabity of this car enough, while ... Read the complete review

This was the first car I had and it was a great little car while I had it. The best thing about this car is that it's quite small which means its very easy to drive and even easier to park, yet its like the tardis as on the inside its big! I can easily fit 3 people in the back of this car and everyone was left with room to move the shoulders without being packed in their like sardines. The front also is nice and roomy and so when changing gear I wouldnt be knocking the person sitting next to me's elbow, which sometimes happend in other cars I've had. The boot is also quite big, as I have used this when going on holiday and it comfortably held 2 big ... Read the complete review

The basics: The corsa is a great starter car for 17+ with its low litre engines you are sure to get a good deal on your motor insurance. The fual tank can take around 40 litres i think but dont hold me to that, but it can do 28 miles on a £5-£7 depending on how high you rev the car. What can be done with the car: (mods) With both the 5DR & 3DR you can modify the car in many ways such as full body kits (Always cool) / Alloy wheels / exhausts / new hoods / spoilers / tints for the windows. I have already started to modify my car as i already have my new exhaust (Big bore mark II), spoiler and will be kitting some stuff for the ... Read the complete review
