Ok, Ok, it's a Corsa, but I may be able to live with one for a couple of years at this price. At least it has the 17" alloys and a 60-70mpg engine. Plus it'll be in warranty for the time you use it, should things go wrong.

There are a few deals around for this model Corsa, all look cheap, but most are 5k miles per annum and cost a little more. I cannot find one which matches this crazy low price.

EDIT - Updated to add the commission fee of £249+VAT (which they conveniently forget to mention on their website). Thanks goes to eca03amc for giving them a call.

I drove a 1.2 petrol SXI from Enterprise recently and it was pretty bad on the motorway, but at least the diesel will have a little more torque.

The lease on my Pug 208 is coming to an end soon and I'm browsing alternatives. This is by far the cheapest 5 door I have found so far....

Would 17" alloys not be a negative? Worse fuel consumption and reduced ride quality.

Buying an eco diesel and putting oversized wheels on it seems counter intuitive.

For some maybe.

I guess I'm just shallow, I like to have a nice looking version of a car. I'll sacrifice a bit of ride and mpg for that.

Good question. You would have to pay for one service as they are due every 1 year or 20k miles, whichever comes sooner.

I would get its first service done shortly after the first year has passed then the second service wouldn't be due until just after you return the car.

This car was one of the cases for BBC's don't get done get dom, was stated on the engine is no where near powerful enough for the vehicle.

Edit: The one on the Dom Littlewood show was only a 1.0 litre petrol engine (not diesel) that the woman who had the complaint had. It was only a 3 cylinder in comparison to a 4 cylinder which this is.

It certainly isn't fast. 0-62 takes 14.9 seconds and it will manage 101mph.

However, it has 140 ft/llbs of torque between 1750 and 2250, so if you keep it in that rev range it'll keep up with traffic.

I must admit I'm hoping for something more powerful myself though.

It was the 1.0 petrol with a whopping 66 lb-ft of torque.

I thought that was the 1.1 she had?

Jesus. The 1.2 petrol I used recently was really underpowered. I was regularly at max revs in third on the motorway (it averaged 32mpg)

I can't imagine how bad a 1.0 would be!

Not surprised it got poor fuel economy if you drove in third on the motorway. Should've tried the other two, they're just for show.

It wouldn't hold 70mph in 5th up hills, nor accelerate fast enough in 4th....

Yep. I just had a quick rewatch on the On Demand and it was only the 1.0 petrol 3 cylinder version that the woman had.

Actually a decent deal for what it is. Hot from me.

Is this to lease the car? I've never been a fan of leasing as the cars never yours, I'd much rather buy something second hand.

Risky business buying 2nd hand diesels nowadays.

Very good find.. Will ring for more details. Thanks OP

How much per mile if you go over the limit?

Normally a ban and a hefty fine.

How so ?

Every corsa is 'Limited edition' these days

Smitheeeee

How so ?



DPF, DMF, EGR, Turbo problems, etc. Unless I know the previous owner and how it's been driven I wouldn't touch a used one unless it's very old.

Useful info, thanks. Would someone with experience of problems with these things be able to pick up on them easily with an inspection and test drive ? I'm looking at a 5 year old diesel with fairly high mileage but one owner and motorway miles.

Worse car I've ever had, nothing but problems with it and extremely poor customer service.

Some are more prone than others. What car and engine is it? Also can the previous owner prove it's motorway miles?
I have a friend that visits patients and drives at least 500 miles a week, none of it is motorway miles but you can guarantee a dealer would claim it is upon resale.

Yes probably why 2nd hand diesels are in such demand , can't believe how people make such a generalised ill informed statement , petrol models have problems with turbos , coil packs ,this deal would inc a warranty

I have the Astra 1.8 VVT Design 140 2010. The 1.9 is a Fiat engine, easily remaps to 200bhp and can be troublesome, have a read on the Vauxhall forums for tips on maintaining it. Mainly issues with swirl flaps and EGR, although this can be cleaned regularly to lower the risk of problems.

I know this deal has a warranty, at least read the context of my comment.

Diesels may be in demand but that doesn't stop them costing money when they are not driven in the correct style. Any one of the things I've listed wipes out possible fuel savings. As I said to Smitheeeee, some are more prone than others, so it's best to do your homework before purchasing.

Speaking of demand, one of the most popular diesel engines in Europe the PSA 1.6 unit used in Citroens, Peugeots and many Fords is also one of the most unreliable engines produced in the last 10 years.

Why would you pay over 3 k for a car, over 2 years, just to give it back?

Great probably best not to go over the 10k miles a year then (_;)
