It's a small town car(fact) not designed for regular long distance motorway use. The 1.2. is what do you drive?
I drive a 2.3 turbo Saab, a 2.0 litre Astra gsi and a 2.5 e30, what's that got to do with it?
I have plenty of experience with these corsas as I work in a garage.
Even get old dears bringing them in with 45-60k on the clock having problems, in fact one of the lads in our yard had to replace an engine in one a few months back and it had only done about 53k.
