Surprising — Only over-steers on wet roads. Rear bumpers rattle a lot when going over speed bumps (Might just need attention). Looks alright when washed. Not very fuel economic, requires more fuel to carry any excess weight other than the driver. Gear-shifts are really smooth. Very fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Redline is very high. At 6,500 RPM.

Cons: Top Speed

Worth A Buy, Tons Knocking Around On Ebay, Would Make A Good Second Car — Performance is good, Most powerful Engine of its size and type availiable at its time. 0-60 sprint (although never atempted) is also the quickest in its category. Twinport System (only produced for 2 years) lowers emmissions meaning i pay less road tax than all my mates with petrol cars, whilst increasing horse power and economy by re-cycling exhaust gases in the Inlet manifold. Thubs up for this :) Although more modern, Dash board some times rattles, but so far nothing has or ever will fall of as you would expect from a car less than 5 years old. Everyone loves the way it looks, Halogen Headlights give it a real distinctive front end look while the twinport badging and tailpipe on the rear also give it a unique look. Fuel Economy is average for a car of its size and much better than some cars with simmilar power output. However, Over long motorway journeys you fail to see the advantage of Twinport and my personal opinion is it doesnt come close to its extra urban fuel figures. Car is fun, if not safe to drive and very sturdy in the unlikely event anything bad should happen.

Pros: Fuel economy round town, Good car to be seen in, Good stereo, Very frugal if driven sensibly, HUUUUGE list of options and different variants!

Cons: SXI and some of the cheeper smaller engine models like LIFE and GLS are often riced by assholes and are best avoiding

Good 'little' Car — Good 'little' car, i've never had any problems with it. Corners well for its size, but i wish it had a better 0-60mph, however when it gets to about 50mph its feel like there is extra boost of power so overtaking is made easy. This car may look small on the outside, but it has bags of room on the inside even with five adults and shopping in the boot! It is fun to drive and has good looks too...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: small car but lots of room inside unlike other small cars..can get golf bag in boot and lots of shopping too!

Cons: slow 0-60...but around town its fine.

Would I? — Its very quick of the mark, due to it only being a 1ltr, its slow on motorways, but would burn off anyone taking off. Braking is very good on it, acceleration is spot on. No particular style inside or out - its standard. Mileage I got it on was 33,000, but is now on 45,000. The car is fun to drive, sometimes. Its not when your trying to catch up with people on the motorway, but it is when your planning to set off quickly at traffic lights, if you get a cocky sod next to you.

Pros: Quick, easy to drive, small.

Cons: not fast enough on motorways

Corsa 1.8 Sri — Vauxhall Corsa 1.8 sri. Performance was very good for standard but grip was a big problem, even with 205/40/16 rubber all round! Sorted that (nearly) with 17inch wheels, a strut brace and some suspension mods. Coupled with a fair few engine mods has made for a good handling pocket rocket!!

Pros: Quick and handles well

Cons: its a vauxhall!!

Fantastic In Gear Acceleration — Mine is the 1.7 CDTi SRi 5dr. One of the best things about this car is its understated looks, the only clues are the door mirrors, 16 inch alloys and the subtle rear spoiler. I really liked it when i first got it, its fast (1.7 common rail turbo diesel), good looking and pretty decent round corners (however it understeers severely in the wet). It has had several problems, namely the fact that it has had 3 new steering racks (im told these are a well known weakness of the car), the intercooler went, plus several other little tthings that aren't rly worth listing. Overall if it hadn't had these problems I would probably still like it but it has just put me off it, however because we've just bought a house im in no position to change it, never mind eh?!

Pros: In gear acceleration, decent handling, good and subtle looks, nice gearbox, cheap insurance.

Cons: Very harsh ride, not very  comfortable, reliability issues, numb steering, patchy build quality.
