Very reliable Honda powered car
Current problem is rattling under car at slow speed over bumps. Suspect that pads are loose in Calipers, but garage changed drive shaft instead!
Air conditioning condenser needs replacing at 83000 (£350) otherwise a top up is required every 6 months at £47.
Front Brake disc & pads needed replacing at 77183 (£273)
Front anti-roll bushes vbar bushes at 77036 (£80)
Electric aerial mast at 77000 (£15)
Rear pads at 71579.
Track rod ends seized at 70534 so couldn't adjust tracking.
Rear electric window mechanism at 65000 (£150 from rover, £40 from scrapyard)
Headlight bulbs at 64286.
All four courtesy light switches (£6 each) to stop alarm going off.
Changed cam-belts etc at 45674 (£412.52 at Rover dealer)
Front tyres all too often.
The car is very quick in a straight line, but doesn't handle over bumps or around twisty bends very well. Sound good when revved.
Spacious inside, but boot not as useful as it looks.
Leather Seats not very comfortable or supportive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
