The third-generation Corsa appeared in October 2000. A variety of engines is available in the Corsa range, and comprises 1.0-, 1.2-, 1.4, 1.6- and 1.8-litre petrol engines and two versions of a 1.7-litre diesel engine. The engines all have fuel injection, and are fitted with a range of emission control systems. Three- and five-door bodystyles were available, as was a Corsavan (3-door van based on hatchback), and Combo Van body styles, with a wide range of fittings and interior trim depending on the model specification. The manual gearbox is of the five-speed all synchromesh type, and a four-speed electronically controlled transmission is available as an option on certain models. An ‘Easytronic’ manual/automatic transmission was also available. Equipment included central locking, electric windows, electric sunroof, anti-lock braking system, electronic alarm system and supplemental restraint systems. For the home mechanic, the Corsa is a relatively straightforward vehicle to maintain. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Vauxhall repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our repair manual for the Vauxhall Corsa is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
