I know your pain there - my sister got one as her first car despite my pleading to get a Fiesta... then three years later, instead of listening to my advice and getting a brand new MK7.5 Fiesta (which I even had priced up for her), she went and got another bloomin C**sa!

 

Some people are just beyond help :P

You know what they say about never being more than 12 feet from a rat, well just substitute C***a and its still true. I get these damn things provided as hire cars from work all the time they are just awful excuses for a car.

My boss had a 10 plate insignia and the amount of things that went wrong with it was stupid, wheel bearings, engine faults and boot lock breaking constantly in the end he sold it at a loss he was that fed up.

Clearly if by some miracle the car slips through the net of faults it is preprogrammed to kill itself at 100k.

In some ways you could consider it an achievement it lasted that long :P

My boyfriends got the new Corsa... and he has had nothing but trouble. It's a 12 plate and in the past year it's had to go back to Vauxhall 8 times because its broke on him!

 

Everyone should get KA's :wub:

That is true, and I will admit the new one's arn't as pretty.

 

But the one shape would go forever.. unless like me you pile it into the backend of a Peugeot!
