1993 Rover - Austin 200 216 GSi 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Small agile fast and reliable - perfect ladies car
Radiator needed recoring at 120k
Head needed welding up to seal a minor leak into a cylinder. Reason being my wife had a hose leak and the man from the AA filled it up with tap water - Don't DO THIS! An alloy engine needs the anti corrosion ingredients in anti freeze - even though its summer.
Slight corrosion now around the rear wheel arches.
Had this car since one year old. It was used as company bus towing double axle trailers as well as a family car for eight years. In the end I bought it off the company for a couple of hundred quid as a second car- and it still goes, each time every time. 135k on the clock now and it runs sweet as nut. Think I shall keep it until it dies!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
