1991 Rover - Austin 200 214Si 1.4
If you treat it well, it will be nice to you
Catalyst died during the first month.
1 valve failure on 15000kms.
Constant water leakage.
Oil burning since 70000Kms.
Power steering system replaced at 90000.
Gearbox replaced at 112000.
Clutches don't last more than 10000 km.
Replaced 3 batteries.
Lots of noises coming from the trunk.
Coolant system replaced.
Pretty fast, low consumption, roomy for passenger and object transportation.
Although it seems like it has not been reliable, considering how me and my family treated it (3 different drivers, 2 teenagers), I could tell that it lasted too long. I added Motor Cote in the engine and it turned into a 1.6L with improved horsepower, torque, less noise and more economic.
Oil consumption is quite a boring task to deal with.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
