General Comments:

Cor blimey!!!

What a car this is. It came in for some mild criticism in the tests when it first came out, but that was in comparison to vehicles of the same list price. I've just bought this 2.0 V6 stormer with leather, AC, electric heated seats, etc, etc with a Y registration and seven miles on the clock for only £14700 at a car supermarket. This is a car which they wanted to sell not so long ago for £22000!!!

For the price I paid, there is nothing on the planet which can beat it. It is very quick, incredibly smooth and quiet, handles tenaciously if with a little roll.

And what a beautiful interior! Simply stunning! Buy one and you won't regret it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

What a superb car, full of class and a ride that competes with the best and more expensive German makes. This car is total value for money. Well done Rover.

This car is not only a joy to look at, it is a joy to drive. Value for money - it is simply unbeatable.

I bought my Rover 75 Connoisseur auto on 1st September 2001. In Royal Blue, I still can't get over what a beauty it is. Wherever I take it I find people stop and stare. It's like driving a 'Roller' in more ways than one. The interior reminds me of 'proper' cars like my old Humber Super Snipe of the early '60's. This car has renewed my interest in cars and is a joy to drive.

Yes superb car, but I don't know if for sure? I have bought connoisseur 2.0 CDT in 2004 it was 3 years old. Boot cover show rusty marks in corners. When bought there was problem with air condition. Main fan was burn, that I was told in service. Few times engine cut off on motorway showing Low Oil Pressure warning light when I was stuck in traffic on hot day, when cold day, working fine, still wondering what was wrong?. Very hard to change light bulbs. After 90k auto gear box broken down, cost 1600 pounds to fix in private garage. Rover service can only change oil in it. Except that problems lovely car, very spacious with all luxury. Want to buy new one, but can't rely.
