Summary:

Cheap, Luxurious, Reliable, Fast

Faults:

I've only had it for about 3 months so nothing actually :). Which is surprising because it already has 320000km, which is a miraculous distance for a rover.

General Comments:

The Power steering is great. It can be a bit difficult at high speeds because it's extremely sensitive, but in tight streets and parking lots it's a blessing.

The consumption is more than acceptable for 112hp (about 30 miles/gallon or even less). but it can take 25 if you step on it all the time. The car is very stable if you use good tires.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
