Corsa's do make good for being able to travel the furthest distance upside down though.

The interiors seem to smell funny too. I thought it was just my friends one when she got hers, but I walked past one parked up the other day with the window down and that had the same stench!

And I dont think it's because of bad deodorant/hygiene issues with the drivers...

I've noticed that as well! Must be the cheap plastics or adhesive used to slap the blasted things together

unless like me you pile it into the backend of a Peugeot!

 

Look on the bright side... the Peugeot probably looked better afterwards.

Next time aim for the front, that front grill is just plain disgusting.

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

 

My son bought himself a new Corsa, 12 plate I think, I've only been in it twice, first time to drive it, and the second time, (Cos I couldn't believe how bad it was the first time) as a passenger, they are god awful, the seats are rock hard, the transmission tunnel is that wide I had no leg room on the passenger side, and of all the colours he could have picked he chose a white one, so every time he comes here I ask him who parked the Taxi on the drive.

 

haha, are they banking on their " lifetime warranty* " now on offer....?

 

 

.......................*up to 100,000 miles.  :lol:

 

Isn't that the one where when the engine blows the camshaft comes through the bulkhead and skewers you to the seat

 

couldve been worse my missus went and bought a punto evo, only had it three months piece of !Removed! kept breaking went back to the dealers more often than the petrol station

 

Fiat does stand for Fix It Again Tommorrow

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:


Id much rather be seen driving a Ford KA than a corsa lol even though the KA is widely regarded as a feminine car lol. Id even drive a KA with those stupid eyelash things before id get in a corsa lol

I'd much rather be seen in nothing but a pink tutu and fairy wings than be seen in a Corsa!!

I don't get why people get the body kits on them either, when they have the 1 litre or 1.2 engines, it's like I'm sure that adds weight that your turdbox can't handle...

First car is no excuse ;)

Bloke at my work races vauxhall corsas and novas. Apparently he has a corsa b with a 2 litre turbo kicking out over 600bhp.
Although not sure how true all this is as he also told us all that he was a driver for a drug dealing operation... basically spun out the plot to fast and furious :P

Not even Ali G levels of bragging.

Haha we all love his stories! We humour him though because he's like a little excited puppy dog.

Don't you think fast and furious could use a corsa? Paul Walker and Vin Diesel battling it out, engines roaring, doing an astonishing 50mph down the interstate? Can't think of anything better myself :P
