    Anyone Own an Astra and a Corsa C Sxi 1.2

    We have just got a Corsa Sxi and I was just wondering how people found them to drive.....


    Are the accerelator and clutch very light and do you find it harder to find the biting point compared to the astra?

    steering is ultra light and lacks low speed feel compared to the astra and signum. - but that was an 05 1.4 I was driving yesterday
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    2958cc was 175BHP @ 4000rpm, 370Nm (273lb.ft.) @ 1900rpm NOW 230BHP/469Nm (344.9lb/ft)!! www.IUsedToOwnTwoAstras.com

    1.4 was running climate control and still didnt require any clutch feathering - but the 1.2 might be a different kettle of fish

    Hmm, maybe its me that just cant drive

    I think I may have been looking for problems though after Ive been having problems with my astra.....

    Is there anything you can do with a car that has a light clutch.

    Ive always found the SXi to be a cracking car, handling of the car etc. is superb considering what it is. The clutch maybe lighter than your used to, its a hydraulic clutch so theres not a lot you can do to adjust it, just really a case of getting used to it really.
