Nice driving experience... if the car's not yours
- alternator broke down after 15 days of ownership.
- pool of water on driver's side foot well every time it rained or when the car was washed (the whole left front wing had to be replaced, the dashboard had to be dismantled etc)
- the car eventually self-ignited and was a total loss.
The car was bought at a rover dealership, came with one year warranty, had a full service history and one previous owner.
Still, after ten months of ownership and multiple costly problems (see above) the car self-ignited on a warm may evening. The engine bay was destroyed and the insurance company could not bother with the hassle of finding out what went wrong.
In any case, a great driving experience let down by extremely poor dealers and very poor build quality. For a bit more money and same performance I'd go for a Lancia Kappa 2.0T 20v.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
