2000 Rover - Austin 25 iS 1.4 petrol from UK and Ireland
A classy small car with good performance.
The rear screen washer failed within a couple of months of buying the car.
The drivers door lock mechanism failed after 2 years preventing entry or exit through it.
Both problems were quickly rectified under warranty by my local dealer.
A small patch of rust has developed on one of the rear hatch hinges, but the dealer says because it has not actually gone all the way through the body it is not covered by the perforation warranty!
For a relatively small engine the performance is more than adequate and it handles well on the country roads in my part of the world.
It feels like a big car inside and I find it comfortable for long journeys.
Fuel economy is good. It returns 35+ mpg.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
