1992 Rover - Austin 200 214Si Cat 1.4i petrol from UK and Ireland
Cheap to run, but build quality could be better
Coolant leaked, causing the engine to overheat and burning off engine oil. Changed the oil and added the coolant.
Nothing else so far.
The car rattles like hell sometimes. It happens with the first 3 gears, at around 1500-2000rpm, e.g. crawling in town traffic in 2nd gear. I think it is the plastic bits knocking against each other and the car seems fine. Irritating since the radio/cassette is crap and you have nothing but the rattling to listen to.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
