hi all
just got me a corsa d 1.4 design on a 09 plate 5 door 24k and would like to know a few things.
i test drove a lot ....sxi i tried 3 and design tried 3 and power seems the same 1.4 on all.
i like the design as the black dash and half leather also a few more mod cons.
1......is the 2 cars the same on speed side as seems to me the same and drove a few also places i have read and people i asked.
2......what stuff has the design got like auto lights etc as never get a true run down on stuff
3......is this cam chain or belt.........and is it a twinport as if like my old one twinport = chain
4......what things to look for or check etc.
thanks for the time to read this and sorry to go on with the stuff.
cheers

Things to look for are - worn chain, leaking rear shockers, rattling Leccy windows, broken heater vents, noisy alternator, rust where rear bumper meets arch & door check straps clicking

Should be same on speed although I was told sxi and Sri had a slightly different gearbox but never had this confirmed! D is very heavy so don't expect high MPG but should get a decent average

thanks for the reply
yes i know its a heavy car and slower than my corsa c but seems the same in each
gear as sxi going in the ones i did and as long as M.P.G aint to far
away from my old car as i only do local drives
so its a chain then so as long as service is done should be ok
i only look at parkers for all the m.p.g etc
seen the auto light and wipers but cant see climate etc so must be an option when new
or the m.p.g./computer thing and was told about auto glear rear-view-mirror or something
how can i tell if i got some of these stuff
sorry for being a bit thick on some stuff lol

Seen that auto dim rear view mirror it's great
Are the dash/speedo lights always on when you drive
I know you can dim them when you have headlights on but even when
The lights off.......got to say I like the car a lot

They are bright when the lights are off and dim when the lights are on only fault with the car is the ride is very rough however it handles like it's on rails
