    Hi all. No.1 daughter and her boyfriend came home with her "pretty red
    Corsa" that they bought today. First impressions seem OK but is there
    anything in particular I should be looking out for when I get a chance to
    give it a once over?

    TIA

    A bit more information would be helpfull. Like engine. age. body type.
    (example: 5 door models have a tendency to start cracking around the 'B'
    pillar.)

    CV boots - handbrake cables - corroded discs - cambelts - water pumps -
    radiator fan switch seals - rear seat catches. Nothing exciting, bread and
    butter motoring.

    Thanks Mike, the B pilllar is the one in the middle with the rear door
    hinges on it yeah?

    Thanks mark, a few things to look at there. I'm not expecting too much
    wrong, it's from a close friend of the daughter and it's been in their
    family from new and, up until last year, serviced at Vauxhall :)))

    thanks again

    Thats the one. The weight of the rear door can cause cracking on some cars.

    This link should be helpfull to you:
