    Needle Sticking on 70MPH!! R Plate CORSA

    Why would a needle stick on a R plate Corsa at 70MPH?

    My parents have just bought it from a garage. But surely the milage isn't corrrect?

    AM i correct in thinking its cable driven, and the miles will be affected too? I have had cars stick on 0mph but 70?!?!? Its a bit weird!
