You can get a better deal as on price. The car is definately amazing to drive and long drives would be a pleasure. Mainatinance is a bit critical but if serviced on time no issues would bother you.Parts will be available on limited places and they are expensive if you buy the originals.

Price should be around 1 lakh . Parts will be a problem - delay plus high price. It is an engg marvel , but parts+ maintenance +less mileage
Think again

Answer by Lakshmynarayanan 06 June 2009

it gives immense driving pleasure especially on long drives. costly to maintain as low mileage and spare parts are scarce. GM stopped production

Answer by R V Prasad 06 June 2009

an excellent car, u well engineered one.its a very sturdy vehicle but very sensitive one,mileage seems to be good, to have that kind of mileage you should try to drive decently.spareparts should not be a problem but its expensive.price depends on the condition of the vehicle 1.25 seems to be a decent offer if the condition is good

Answer by Giri Prasad 06 June 2009

Price should be definetely within 1 lakh.

Answer by John 06 June 2009

Hi,According to my experience Corsa is too good to get owned and to feel driving pleasure.But maitainance is quite high rather very poor respond and service from GM.(As Sundaram is a only authorised service provider).

Answer by Pravesh 06 June 2009

we owned a 1.6gls opel corsa its an amazing car to drive it only gets better as it gets old, however there are major issues with Gm the owner ship exp is pathetic for instance periodical service could be anything b/w a TVS 50 or a used bike, parts are freakin expensive accidents will cost high, parts are rear to find suspensions grow to soft with absolutely bad ground clearance, driving is a super eperience especially on the highway but if you are too much of a city sleek then i guess this shud be considered only as a cheap bet, i sold my corsa silver 60K kms 2001 model free of major accidents @ INR 90K.

Answer by Jaygee 06 June 2009

You can have my 2004 model fully loaded 1.6 with leather beige interiors at the same price, done about 59000 kms. I've never faced any parts problems as GM workshops are everywhere.
