The Vauxhall Corsa is probably one of the best cheap cars you can buy. Not only are they extremely reliable but they have a great engine line up which excellently balances performance with economy. However, you don't want any unexpected bills after your purchase so you need to be aware of the Corsa's more common faults. You'll need to check the exterior panel work for any corrosion especially on models over 10 years old. Pay particular attention to the wheel arches and the doors. Another common issue is with the exhausts so make sure that there is no wear and tear or leakage in and around this area. When you take the car out for a drive pay attention to the steering. Is it responsive? Is it noisy or heavy? If you answer yes to any of these questions then this could indicate that it's faulty and could require an expensive replacement fitting. When you're driving place a small amount of pressure to the brakes and see if the car pulls to the left or right. If so then it could indicate an issue with the left of right braking mechanisms. Also check the handbrake while parked on an incline. The handbrakes in Corsas are known to get weak over a long period of time. Finally, check the owner's documentation and see if the car's got a full service history. If so, then this would indicate that the car has been well maintained.
