1984 Rover - Austin Metro MG Turbo 1.3 turbo


Awful, badly built and unreliable, expensive


Everything that can!!

Engine mounting broke.

Carburettor flooded continually.

Transmission would seize intermittently!!

General Comments:

What a piece of junk! A good idea, but poorly produced. Everything on this car was cheaply produced and poorly fitted. When it ran it was fast - 120 mph, and reasonable economy. Daren't drive it more than 15 miles for fear of breaking down. Finally sold it to a complete mug for what I paid for it, I was lucky.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
