Another Yaris or a Corsa

Hello everyone

The time has now come to replace my present Yaris 1.4 D4D.  However, i am not sure to go for another Yaris or a 1.3 Corsa Diesel, which is popular with learners and i thought was nice to drive on a recent test drive.

has anyone any opinions of a Corsa for a learner car and would you recommend one?  I guess I am looking for a reason to get a Corsa for a change, but any strong opinions?

many thanks

Hi stick with what you know if you change to a different car you run the rusk of losing some which don't like it....... I have in the past changed to a different make and it was a hard job to keep some going. Be aware !!

Re: Another Yaris or a Corsa

In our fleet i own 37 corsa's and imo think they are beter value than the yaris BUT TAKE NOTE the vauxhall warrenty does not work with a driving school. We expext and cost in for the clutch to go at about 1.5 years or 50,000 miles and if it was not for the fact that i buy direct i would swap straight over to the hyundai range. Their warrenty will cover a driving school and is up to the first 100,000 miles. Most kids think these two cars are "funky" therefore you should have no problem in swapping over.

Re: Another Yaris or a Corsa

Depends on whether you are buying or leasing it. 15K for a diesel Yaris!.  I would be needing a big discount before I invested in a new Yaris and I hate the Corsa.  At the end of the day it comes down to overall running costs and if you can afford it buy what you like.  Personally, I will be running my current vehicle into it's 4th Year, something I have never done before but it makes financial sense in the current climate.

Re: Another Yaris or a Corsa

I've had solid reliable experiences with 4 Toyotas. Had 1 Corsa briefly and didnt like it, fell to bits as well (2 faults in a month, it's the only car that's ever caused me to have to cancel lessons)

Hi Fishie,

You may be pleased to know that Hyundai's 5 year unlimited warranty does apply to Driving school cars its in the small print. Unlike as you say taxi's and other comercial use purchases which just get the 100,000 warranty.

I should know because i have the warranty book of my i20 Diesel Style in front of me which clearly states driving school cars get the full unlimited milage warranty as a private user purchase.

Mine is 15 months old just over 42,000 miles had a couple of minor problems requiring warranty work. Rattle in the door and the clutch switch which caused over reving at idle. Both were sorted at short notice no problem. I'm planning to keep it for the full 5 years when the milage by then will prob be around 175,000 miles. Oh and it has more bhp, better mpg and is cheaper than the Corsa to buy.

Yaris without a doubt.

Better built and better after sales.

thanks for that i did not know it was the full 5 years but we only keep them round about the 2 year mark so the rest realy is of no interest. I am very surprised to hear you say though that the hyundia is cheaper than the corsa to buy as we have found the opposite to be true and now we enjoy a good percentage discount its even cheaper.
