Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: handles great

Should Be Banned For Use By Chavs! — First car i ever owned and hopefully the last one i will ever own, terrible on everything i even hated washing the damn thing! yes you can mod it fairly well but why waste hard earnt cash on a bean shaped dustbin on wheels? Why buy a car which will improve your chav standards?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: If you roll it... It keeps rolling.

Cons: Too many to list..

Vauxhall Corsa 1994 & 1996 — Corsa 1.2 GL We had two: 1st a burgundy 1994 was a good little runner- but the colour wasnt great. 2nd car was the nwer model with the "v" grill- and in silver. same trim and same engine. Both were cheap to insure, cheap to run, pretty quick. Build quality pretty good. Bland to drive though.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: cheap to insure and run

Cons: Bland

Well...........it Still Goes! - What Can I Say? — It still runs after 11 years and 197,000 miles with little in the way of TLC, tin worm is setting in, and the paint work has it's battle scars, but thats several years of all year round motorway driving showing. Needed a gearbox transplant which wasn't difficult, and she has a new lease of life...........ready for another 200,000 miles I hope?!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The drop dead bodystyling - AHEM!

Cons: 0-60 time - needs a v6

1996 Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 8v — I owned one of these for nearly 4 years and I modified it by buying an air filter, spoiler, alloy wheels, exhaust tip and a tachometer. The 1.2 8v is only meant to have 45bhp and a top speed of 90mph, but I got 108mph out of her. She didn't have any electric windows or power steering due to the fact that it was the base model. When I added the K & N filter the car sucked in more air and as a result performance was increased and the engine had a roaring sound.

Pros: looks nice in flame red with colour coded bumpers, rear spoiler and alloy wheels

Cons: not the most refined

Get A Newer Model — Made in the year of 1996 making this an old model corsa which is falling aprt. No power steering & no central locking etc. which is sooo annoying. I really want a new car !!!!!!!!! It is not fun to drive as it hates hills with a vengeance and it also makes a rattling sound.

Pros: looks

Cons: everything else
