Faults:

Needed new seats (front and bench seats in the back), some panels have needed to be beaten out. Mechanically, it's been excellent.

General Comments:

It's never over in a Rover! A classic example of how Land Rover is the unsurpassed leader in off road vehicles. Even though it's about 20 years old, my S3 just keeps going, splashing in and out of rivers and through deep ruts. A really trusty workhorse!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
