Judging from this and Navin's reported experience with the Corsa, can its users conclude that there's a flaw with the car that needs to be addressed by GM India even though its out of production?

i wasnt at the site to see the car burning - I landed up late, when i went there to pick the folks up.

I doubt there's a flaw in the design/manufacturing. This is probably those one off cases.

No photos,sorry :(

Hey Katalyst,

Very sorry to hear abt your Corsa gettin gutted in fire..First & most importantly nobody got hurt..Its important to know why the Corsa caught fire in the first place..

I own a Corsa 1.4 GSi too & it will feel weird getting in that car having this incident at the back of the mind for sure..

Pls take care & do let us know what came of the investigation into the reasons for the fire.
