Gorgeous car with niggling problems
New tyres due to wear (2 sets).
New clutch cable due to snapping.
Starter motor is currently having problems starting, seems OK if you leave the electrics on for a moment.
Driver's side window "fell" into the door as the motor on the window trapped pulleys (£420, replacement on order only).
Key fob stopped working, hence needed to find a Rover dealer with the key code to get into car and turn the alarm off. Replacement fob's are £50 each and £30 for tuning them.
Dealer service very poor and very expensive.
Oil leaks common.
Aside from the clutch break, no other mechanical failures of note have occured.
Interior rattles and squeaks a lot when driving over uneven surfaces.
Suspension "squeaks" when over going bumps but appears okay when tested.
Nice fast car, looks great when washed etc...
Very happy with it despite the problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
