    Default We said good-bye to our Corsa today.

    We said good-bye to our Corsa today, YN59 JFJ.


    This Corsa has covered 36,000 and has a full service history, The last service was on the 7th of January this year and has 2 years additional warrenty which was purchased from a Vauxhall dealer a week before it's first mot. I believe this should carry over to the new owner but as the car was on a private plate it may not be recognised.


    It has been part exchanged to the Perry's group.


    The car had new rear wheel bearings at 14,000 miles and new rear shocks at 21,000 under warrenty.


    We fitted a K&N filter and a 3" cat back Jetex exhaust system. It is not re-mapped.


    It's been a really great car with no big issues to report and it will be missed but I'm confident it's replacement will very quickly put an end to that.


    I hope whoever buys this Corsa enjoys it as much as we have...

    The problem with the bearing I was told is that the hub cover was slightly too small and that the grease was forced out by centrifugal force. But if your Corsa goes as well as ours did your gonna love it Ian...
