To Clio or not to Clio - that is the question

It depends very much on whether you are buying new or second hand. Corsa's are favoured by the boy-racer brigade who tend to thrash their engines a lot - and stick on daft extras. Whilst the Renault engine isn't the best in the world it will take more abuse than the 3-cylinder, humpy lumpy vauxhall - although the Vauxhall 1.2 Litre 4-cylinder engine is fairly good in comparison. If I was driving a 3 cylider Corsa I would'nt wear a back-to-front skip hat - I would be wearing a hood - mask and all - would'nt like to be seen dead in one. Ask any body shop - what type of small car is broken into most and they'll probably answer in a chorus of "It's the Corsa"
