Car was 2yrs old with 22K on clock when I bought it - now 3.5 yrs and 35k on clock.
Needed new alternator shortly after buying it - common complaint on most makes of mid-sized family cars apparently.
Other than that nothing.
Very smart looks - Rover alloys, metallic paint, half-leather sports seats, wood etc.
Great spec too, electrics, immboliser etc.
Overall - A beautiful looking car, quick for a 1.4, nice gear shift and safe handling.
Will probably go for the highly praised diesel next time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
