    Unhappy oooh good lord tax on a 1.4 is higher than my coupe turbo!!

    My sisters road tax reminding came in the other day and she read it today and it's £215 for a year

    I think it's a 1.4 (or 1.2) 16v automatic corsa c
    Doesn't affect me as it's obviously not me paying but I'm just wondering does this sound right as all, we gave them a ring and they say it's because the emission is so high and it's the reason for the high price.... the person also mentioned that it's because the car registered after a certain date, which i know, but it just the emission for a low capacity car seems extremely high.

    There was a thread on the new tax bands a while ago, most people including myself will be paying £200+ from now on
