    Default 1.0 Corsa :(

    Why does life torment me so?

    Mine's in at the dealer for the engine to be looked at so I've got a sign-written 1.0 Corsa to drive around in - with a 100 mile daily limit on it!

    I should be grateful for getting a courtesy car but it's so slow, noisy engine, the trim rattles, I keep going for the cruise control buttons and the stereo control buttons which aren't there!

    I want my baby back

    /rant over - thanks for listening!

    If after 24 hours the courtesy car isn't suitable for your needs (and you cars in warranty), ask for a different car. They have to oblige.

    ROFL! I don't see how anyone can put up with it! It's so slow pulling away from junctions and joining motorways that it's actually dangerous - I'm having to wait for massive gaps in the traffic!

    I didn't know that. Can I tell them that a 1.0 Corsa just isn't really suited to doing any distance on the motorway and so it isn't suitable? Or am I best saying that I've got 3 kids to fit in the back?

    I don't think I could actually do 100 miles in a 1.0 Corsa without resorting to bashing my head against the steering wheel to try and make it go faster! They'd be doing me a favour by cutting the mileage...

    Both!!

    I told them that my car is used for business (which it is) and that I carry computer equipement so needed a diesel with a decent sized boot.

    You'll always get the obligatory Corsa first but for anything longer than 24 hours .. .. ..

    I've had Zaffy 1.9 CDTi and currently have an Astra Estate 1.7 CDTi.

    Well, it's 100 miles a day but still rubbish. I do a 75 mile round-trip to work so doesn't leave me much leeway! :s
