1997 Rover - Austin 100 Knightsbridge SE 1.1 from UK and Ireland
Under Rate (often laughed at) Gem of a car
Since purchasing the car I haven't had any major problems with it.
The only real concern is the back bumper which seems to hang a little bit lower on the right hand rear side.
The front passenger seat also doesn't fold forward, but this was a fault that occurred at the dealer from which I purchased the car.
People often make fun of the Rover 100 'Metro', but this really is a cheeky little runner with plenty of bite if driven properly.
The 1.1 Liter engine performs much better than previous 'Metro' engines. It's fairly quick of the mark and really cruises well in 5th on long drives.
The interior is comfortable with very attractive velor seat covers and trim.
The Steering wheel is also much more comfortable than my previous H Reg Metro 1.1L.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
