• Summary

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What does this car say about you?

    This car is simple to drive and I have OCD and I like simple things in life and driving is one of them. So if the car is going to say anything about me it's that I like simple cars.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    My family don't like it because it's uncomfortable to drive. My friends don't like it because there isn't any room in the back but then again they are 6ft 3.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    I wouldn't buy one the same age as it because too many things go wrong with it because it's quite old. However I would buy a younger one like an 06-07 plate because they are very nice little cars, perfect for getting you from A to B I'm 6ft 1 and fit perfectly into the driving seat. The boot is a great size for that kind of car and as for carrying rear passengers you're better off with a 5 door version for carrying them now and then but frequent rear passengers your better off with a bigger car.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    The car I'm likely to buy next is a Vauxhall Astra because I like Vauxhalls and the Astra is a bit bigger than the corsa and is perfect for me.

    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    October 2013

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    No. I paid too much for the car in the first place and it cost me £800 in constant repairs.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    I bought this car as my first car and also bought it to learn to drive in.

    What was the dealer like?

    The dealer wasn't very talkative, he stated the facts of the car but overall didn't seem that bothered that I was interested in buying one of his cars.

  • Driving it

    3 out of 5 3.0

    What's it like to drive?

    It's easy to drive just as simple as any other car. The ride isn't great at all I'd rate it 4/10 because every bump and lump in the road I can feel and it's annoying! Even going round corners can be uncomfortable.

    What's it like to park?

    Because it's a small car it's very easy to park all of the windows are quite large including the big square rear window which makes all round visibility excellent. I'd rate parking 10/10.

  • Living with it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Yes, the following has had to be replaced: CV joint New Battery New exhaust New oil pressure switch all 4 coil springs Wheel Tracking alignment had to be done several times Fanbelt.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Again because of it's age there isn't much about it that's practical. The rear seats do fold down and I've been able to transport a camping bed in it.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Being a year 2000 car it didn't have anything exciting on it so I had to improvise - the sunroof was the best thing about it.
