1989 Rover - Austin 100 L 998 from UK and Ireland
The best Metro in the World - Ever!!!
Nothing major mechanically has gone wrong with the car.
New alternator needed at 120,000.
Has had a couple of new exhausts.
Rust problems only recently started.
Hatchback does not stay up in cold weather - consequently I keep getting bashed on the head!
After 155,000 miles it is still totally reliable.
Starts up first time!
Being this reliable is very important to a female - it doesn't matter about the rust problems as long as the engine is sound.
Have had some bodywork done recently, and now 'Fred' looks like new!
The best £2,700 I've ever spent!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
