Goes like stink and is great crack to drive for a car of this class, not the owrst looking either. Downs sides are almost everything else, especially the reliability and the seats are awful.

It's clocked up 160,000 miles now and I can't complain. It uses hardly any oil, starts first time and costs very little to run. Mmm, perhaps I'll keep it for now!

avoid like the plague. 1996 - 1998 models have shocking biuld quality. besides all the problems above you were never sure if the damn thing was going to start. countless mechanics couldnt find fault. finally gave up when timing belt screwed the engine. sold to the first taker for 120 euro! Rover, never!

The only real problem is the resale value. I bought mine at 2yrs old from the dealer for 8500IR pounds and am now looking to trade it in but am being offered very little. They seem to have a bad reputation but I|ve maintained mine well and have only ever put a few bulbs in and replaced wiper blades and not a penny on anything else...

Car finally gave up on N4 with baby in the car. Approached dealer to get a new engine and they said they would get it in but not fit it. (great after sales support !)

Rover deserve credit for the exceptional standard of finish which they gove to the car, every inch has that extra effort put in, in an age when the Major Marques al settle for grey or Black plastic and mundane interiors its nice to see. the car handles well on the road and is a very comfortable drive. Power is more than adequate and its a secure car for its class. Suprisingly fun to handle and I would have no hesitation in recommending Rover again.
