Apart from the engine, a dream on wheels
The car doesn't always start on a wet day. But once it starts, it will run smoothly.
From the early beginning there have been problems with the engine. The engine stalls when driving on a wet road. After waiting 15-30 minutes, the engine will start again. Our dealer has looked into it, but failed to cure this problem.
When I checked the oil on 55,000 kilometers, I saw the dip-stick was dry. When observing this, I noticed the oil is gone after +/- 10,000 kilometers. At this point there are no visible oil leaks, nor did the dealer find anything that could cause this problem.
The car handles great, and has an extraordinary suspension system.
The 1.4l K-series engine is more than powerful enough for such a 'small' car. Too bad it isn't very reliable.
The cabin is trimmed as one could expect from Rover.
The boot is quite spacious.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
