Had this car for 1 year 10k miles. Puzzling as to why the Corsa D is so popular as it seems very average to me. The worst aspect is that the front seats are incredibly uncomfortable for a relatively modern car. Also it's anything but nippy - probably because it's actually a lot heavier than it looks. Flags on hills but fine on motorways at steady 70 mph. The way the indicator switch works takes some getting used to - I still find it infuriating. On the positive side, very easy to service. Parts fairly cheap. Reliability good so far. Had to buy a second hand space saver wheel as it came with a tyre repair kit only. Original coil pack worn out after 30k miles but easy to replace. Noise like a worn front wheel bearing when cornering but definitely not bearings - has got better over time and I've got used to it. Mud trap at bottom of front wings but easy to clean out. Front subframe starting to rust well ahead of the rest of the car so need to keep an eye on it. This is a surprising weakness as the build quality is good overall. Fallback manual lock in driver's door didn't work but easy to replace with a scrap item, however the key is different but I can live with that. Engine has timing chain and VVT so I suggest frequent oil changes with proper oil (dexos 2) for longevity. Automatic wiper sensor and automatic lights are nice touches. 45 - 48 mpg easy to achieve, but not if you thrash it!
