Drove the Corsa back that the gf has just bought from Scotland last night & noticed a couple of niggles:
1. It's ok at slower speeds, but once you're hitting around 50mph+, the car pulls to the right. Not sharply, but significantly enough. You've got to then counter by steering to the left just to go straight.
What's the likely solution here?
2. She's been driving it since Friday, but after i'd got off the motorway last night (so that'd be some 160 miles or so) the needles just died after i'd been gone about 2 miles off the motorway. The needles died & the handbrake light came on.
I'd come to a stop & was rolling slow, so i wasn't sure if the engine had died or whether i'd let the handbrake on or what. Checked everything & it was as normal. Then i realised as i was picking up speed, so around 10/15/20mph the needles were still dead ... including temp & fuel. Handbrake light still on.
Carried on driving & they shot to life again. Then they died again, then shot to life again. They did this about 4 times in quick succession & then they sorted themselves out & was fine for the remaining 4 mile or so home.
3. Are these the radio removal keys? http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...egoryId_165626
4. Recommend a Corsa forum for her? I've been on one & i don't know whether it's because a Corsa is a "young persons car", but i find the help levels to be nowhere near AOC. Similar to the Polo forum - a large chunk of people were too interested in being childish rather than being helpful. I'm not saying everyone is unhelpful or childish, but unfortunately a large percentage seemed to be. I'll not name the forum though as there's no point slagging off other boards.
