19,000 miles
2008
£5,500

I've searched for common faults and found a few worrying ones.

4th piston going
air con pipe
expensive wheel bearings
paint work is awful (bubbles)
random dents appearing (from jacking up I guess).

Needs to be run on super unleaded, and warmed up and cooled down before use. I'm guessing that relates to the 4th piston problem.
And there's no guarantee this has been done...

After reading that I'm pretty certain it's a no go. It almost seems like i'm posting this to convince someone to change my mind :palm: :laugh:

Can you amend the price on autotrader as I swear it was 5,475;

But I think I would prefer this;

Still looks nice, crappy 1.2 NA but still better than my 1.0 3 pot. Won't have the more expensive common issues. and insurance will be about £500 cheaper. Overall maintenance easier and cheaper.

If you was going to get a vxr of any kind i'd recommend the astra! corsa's are poo on the cornering.

no thats for a write off the cost has to be more than the car! was probably rear shunted or something and had to have new boot, bumper etc.. or bonnet bumper and wings
