Re: Vauxhall Corsa.

I am pleased to say that the EMS has been sorted on the diesel corsas. Some of you may remember the threads that were started with regard to the surge in 2nd at low speeds. Vauxhall seem to have remedied this situation nicely and taking corners at low speed in second is now a smooth and safe affair. So happy days. Ev wink

Re: Vauxhall Corsa.

Just ordered a new Corsa 1.3CDTi club A/C in white.

Very impressed on the test drive, much more room than the previous model.

Handles well, 5 star safety rating, low service costs and good discount.

Re: Vauxhall Corsa.

One definite difference with the new Corsa is the effect of the extra weight on performance. The pick up is nowhere near as good as it was on the older version. The fuel economy is also down, by about 50 miles to a full tank. Ev

thats one thing the Mazda 2 has cut, i have been looking at both cars and still cannot decide which to go for, but with the mazda cutting its weight down, that may help with the fuel consumption

Hi Karen yes the car is nice, just commenting on the change in performance. The new corsa is a shade heavier then the last model which interprets into a little less pick up off the mark. The drive is better the feel of the car is better, and I must say it has lots of very good points. Ev

Re: Vauxhall Corsa.

I've currently got a Corsa 2007 CDTI on hire whilst my special Clio is repaired at the garage.

Got to say I cannot see why this is voted tuition car of the year.

Ok so its a 3 door menace, but is the 5 door any better.

The boot is so small I can hardly lay my umbrella flat. I use to keep 3 crates and the roof sign in the boot of my clio now I can only fit 2 crates and the roof signs on the back seat. However I do like the lid on in the boot which in effect gives you two levels.

The glove box is big enough for some business cards and a few CD's. Where do I put my sunglassess case?, phone holdall. This model also has Sports suspension which on todays roads ive never understood.

The key is one of those flick type ones. But when you hold it to put in the lock it does not naturally go in the key whole. All a little annoying. Light switch is very badly placed. Indicators are a little annoying also but I could get use to it.

Could do with some rear seat pockets but like most cars these tend to cost more.

At night everything lights up. In fact the whole dash lights up during the day also. However....The mirror adjustment does not have any lights on it. Again. Thumbling with controls you cannot see or reach is not easy. My clio is one twist L/R and use the joystick method. Easy!.

The biggest problem on this model is the visability. You cannot see a thing out the rear windows. The A pillar does'nt help either.

As a tuition car Im glad Ive got the Clio.

On the plus side the drive is very good. Engine is a little noisier than the Clio I have at the moment. Gearbox has a very solid feel to it and there does not seem to be too much surge from the diesel engine. I wonder if its still the same thou after another 30,000 miles of learner driving.

Re: Vauxhall Corsa.

the latest news neutral

Vehicle Model: Vauxhall Corsa D - new model

COB reference number: 02/2008

Issue Date: 03/01/2008

Vehicles affected: Vauxhall Corsa D - new model

Problem: Vauxhall is recalling a number of the new Vauxhall Corsa D model vehicles for safety reasons.

Action: Vauxhall is recalling a number of the new Vauxhall Corsa D model vehicles because of a potential steering problem. The recall involves checking the intermediate shaft of the steering which might not be according to specification. In the worst case the vehicle would no longer be steerable.

We have carried out a risk assessment and have concluded that even though the risk of failure is extremely low the consequences of failure on test could be very serious. We have therefore decided that examiners should not conduct tests in the new Corsa D model affected by the recall until the vehicle has been checked under the warranty arrangements. However, if the vehicle is fitted with dual controls, the test can be conducted. This recall will affect driving tests form the morning of Friday 4 January 2008.

The recall affects all the new Corsa D models (new shape Corsa) first sold from October 2006 (56 reg) with the following VIN information:


Model Plant From To
Corsa D Zaragoza 7 4 029534 7 4 233663
Corsa D Eisenach 7 6 021542 7 6 087940


The VIN plates are at the bottom of the nearside front window and the VIN number wil be found at the right hand end of the sequence of letters.

Only Corsa D models with the above VIN numbers are affected by this recall.

Because there has been no prior warning of this the test fee will be refunded or a free retest given on the first occasion that a vehicle is presented for test. Customers should contact the local DSA customer service unit to arrange a refund or rebooking. No compensation will be paid.



We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause

Re: Vauxhall Corsa.

There is another recall on Corsa Cs again its the abs. I was in a dealers yesterday cos my offside indicator relay is faulty and flashes erratically. 
After 1 hour of assessment he tells me its £125 for the fitting of the relay, and they dont have 1 in stock.
Then he went on to say I needed a new steering rack as there was a lot of play in it £560
CV boot clip needs changed £58

And TWO bits of recall work on the abs and the ecu.
I said that i had a certificate for the abs work being done already, and thought they were taking me for a ride, but, it seem its true...

So its going to cost me around £700 to get all the work done...I think Ive had my car long enough now!!

This is interesting, because I phoned my dealer to find out more about when they were going to repair my car, and they said they knew nothing of it and there was no recall with regard to this.

I then called the number above: ie DSA, who informed me that they had received the information from Vauxhall themselves: and they very kindly gave me the phone number of Vauxhall Recall help line.  I phoned this, and guess what?  They know nothing about this particular recall. 

I have now emailed the above to my dealer and to Vauxhall Recall.  I await their response.

I have however, now found out that there are two further recalls in respect of my car: one of which is the turbo recharger, and the other to do with the starter motor.  Great: I wonder how long before they were going to inform me if I hadn't enquired.

I also asked about the handbrake issue that was raised on Watchdog last night.  My dealer informs me that there is nothing at all wrong with the handbrake, and that it should be pulled op on the ratchet, and left in gear when parked on a hill.  I asked them what I was supposed to advise my pupils re the handbrake popping off while we were waiting at traffic lights then.  He said tell them to put it on properly! yikes

Well I must be fair, that is the advice I had been giving, however, I KNOW I put it on properly, and it still occasionally drops off.  I didn't give too much thought to it to be honest, until it came on Watchdog: at which point I realised there is actually a problem with the thing.

Vauxhall said on the program that there is a handbrake problem, and an additional spring will be fitted on recall of the vehicles. 

Seems me and my dealer are going to have a major fall out v. soon.

Watch this space for further info 'cos I'm now on a mission.


Wisest are they that know they know nothing
