1997 Rover - Austin 200 214Si 1.4 16v from UK and Ireland
A classy car streets ahead of an Astra or Escort
Front brake sticking on - Original disc's worn.
Windscreen wipers don't work on intermittent - presumably wiper motor.
Car is very comfortable at motorway speeds and town driving alike.
More than enough power from the 1.4 with great acceleration which puts larger engined cars to shame.
Not had it long enough to see its true reliability, but looking at the service and maintenance records, theres nothing apart from routine servicing been done.
Easy maintenance as its the same engine as my Metro, without the complicated suspension!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
