1993 Rover - Austin 200 214i 1.4i 16v twin cam from UK and Ireland
Excellent 1st car!!
Surprise surprise, Rover 200 owners will not be surprised to hear that my cylinder head went shortly after buying the car, and the clutch, the radiator, and the driver's window runner!! But I think that most of this was due to the previous owner/abuser of the car.
The car cost only £1800 which is not bad. It makes an ideal 1st car for anyone wanting a bit of performance and handling. It shames cars costing 5 times as much when it comes to the old traffic light "Grand Prix"! It's also roomy and comfortable enough for long journeys and fairly economical too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
