    What does this car say about you?

    It says that I am a young driver who has a shiny blue corsa.

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

    My friends think it's a great first car- I'm always taking them out to go for a McDonald's drive thru at lunch times! My family love the car as it has been kept in the family since new and is sentimental to me because of this. Within the village my car has developed the name called "The Blue Smartie!".

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes because I think that older corsas have character and are enjoyable to drive. I just love the shape and styling of this car and still looks modern compared to other superminis of this era. The only thing that would put me off buying this type of car again would be the age.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    I think I am going to buy another Corsa, as they are my favorite type of car.

    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    July 2014

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Yes I got a good deal because it was my aunties old car and had been serviced every 6 months. The engine was in good condition and the paintwork was immaculate. When I bought the car, it had 76,000 miles on the clock, which is low for it being a 15 year old car. I have always loved the styling of these corsas and the new ones also.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    I bought this car as my auntie suggested it to be my first car in the event of me passing my test. I also bought it because of the sentimental value the car had within the family, as it has been in the family from new. I also liked the funky blue seats and cute bug headlights which made it modern enough to be a good little car.

    What was the dealer like?

  • Driving it

    What's it like to drive?

    It drives like a dream. The engine is very responsive and does not lack power. It is also very good at performing on motorways also.

    What's it like to park?

    Because of its small size, you can literally park it anywhere. You have a good view from every angle when sat in the drivers seat.

  • Living with it

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Nope, never had any problems with it.

    What's most practical about your car?

    The engine size. Even though it's a 1.2, it's very nippy and I was very surprised when I first drove it. The boot space is big for such a small car and is capable of storing lots of luggage.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    It is fairly basic in terms of gadgets, but I like the seat trim which makes the car look fresh compared to super-minis of the same age.I also like the mudflaps which change the styling of the car.
