2000 Rover - Austin 75 Club SE 2.0 V6 from UK and Ireland
Forget the Vectra, buy one of these for 10 grand
Exhaust rattle, paintwork finish not brilliant, that's it.
This is the car for anyone doing high miles, it's so cheap to buy & run for its class.
On the motorway it will do 40MPG, the annual Rover service is about £200, business class insurance £350.
Torquey rather than quick, will pull in 5th from 1000 RPM.
Very comfortable to drive, I'm 6'6" tall and have no problems.
This is how a Rover should be, it's like the 1976 V8 P6 Rover I used to have.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I don't agree with you my friend. The Vectra is a very good car and it's much better than Rover 75. I can say this because before the Vauxhall I stayed 4 months with a 75, and the car gave a lot of problems.
The Vectra is a worthy enough car for those who just want to get from A to B. It's dull and dreary to drive, couldn't wait to see the back of mine, although to be fair, after some teething problems it was reliable.
