1992 Rover - Austin 200 216 SLI 1.6 16v Honda Engine from UK and Ireland
Excellent value for money for a car that is quicker than average
Clutch replaced at 76000 miles,
CV joints replaced at 82000 (Because rubbers were badly fitted on prior Joint replacement) and general wear and tear, EG Tyres and servicing.
Super Car performs more like a 2.0 than a 1.6 only sold it as I needed a more economical replacement, so I bought a Rover 115 SLD.
The car handles well, braking and performance is very good, the car is a wolf in sheep's clothing.
I bought the car from my father who had owned the car from six months old.
He had very little trouble with it and i can only recall that he had two sets of brake disc's and pads and a new fuel management control unit during his ownership.
It was and still is a low mileage vehicle for its age.
I have had friend who has owned the same model and has sold it with 140000 miles on the clock and he has had no come backs from the new owner.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
