2001 Rover - Austin 25 I.s 1.4 from UK and Ireland
The worst car I have owned.!!
Brake Caliper kept catching the day I picked it up.
Needed a new engine after 900 miles due to Strange Engine noise.
Car broke down 10mins after driving the car away from the dealer with new engine in.
Third engine put in, reason being that they could not find the fault with the second engine.
Tappet Noise from third engine.
Big car for the money.
A nice car to drive, but has a dated interior.
That's about it the rest is bad.
Rover really need to sort reliability issues out to compete with the competition of other manufacturers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You are obviously talking rubbish. You must be the ONLY person in the world to go to a dealer and get two other engines put into a car! Do me a favour!! They just don't 'swap an engine' because of a funny noise. Get real!
My family has been around cars for years, my father has had two Lotus Elans, and a Porsche 911 and even he thinks that the 25 not only looks good, but has punchy performance. (His friend has a 103 PS).
