1977 Rover - Austin Allegro 1.5
An awful British car
Where do I start? It ran OK for the first few weeks, then the fun began.
The brake seals blew as I was slowing down at an intersection, causing me to crash into the back of a brand new Toyota Corolla; cost $1200.00 NZ.
The electrics shorted out on a regular basis, various parts came and went, and the transmission slipped. The handling was truly awful.
This was the worst car that was built by British Leyland; the handling was bad, and the reliability was bad.
The funny thing about it was that the engine was great; it never quit, but everything that was connected to it did.
It was a typical British car; if something died on it, at least 6 different parts went out in sympathy. The worst car I have ever owned.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
