2004 SXi Corsa
Added: 13th of October 2013
It has been quite reliable, things that have gone wrong were the indicator relay that needed replacing, the bulb behind the odometer, one number plate bulb, and a tail light bulb, both headlamp bulbs, the handbrake cable broke - I use the handbrake a lot, a couple of short rubber hoses on the engine split - the material has been improved now, and a plastic nozzle on the engine for the radiator sheared off - the replacement is brass. I had to drill a hole under the dummy fog light / reflector as water was collecting in it and preventing the reflector from doing its job. All fairly minor. Front CV boot clips corroded away so new ones were fitted, and a couple of minor items on the front suspension were replaced during servicing - not expensive. One of the emission sensors in the exhaust needed replacing too as a warning light lit up. I've just recently replaced the indicator assembly as it wasn't always returning to the off position. It's never failed to get me to where I had to go, the glove box & wide boot are a good size, better than the later version Corsa. Throttle response sometimes seems to lag, not sure if that's because it's electronic and fuel consumption isn't great, perhaps 30-32 MPG which I think my 1970s beetle did.
