2002 Rover - Austin 75 Classic Tourer 2.0L CDT turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
A fitting epitaph for the British Motor Industry
- Electrics went a bit funny, with the speedo not working and various error messages flashing up on the message centre. However, switched the radio off and on again (I'd a habit of just leaving it on) and the electrics started working again!
- Sound proofing underneath the engine was fairly easily dislodged.
Fantastic car. The ride quality is fantastic, and it's like sitting on an arm chair in the QE2, as you cruise your way up and down the motorways effortlessly.
The 'Classic SE' trim level was a bit of a disappointment after my MG ZT-T, but even so, it still has the electric sunroof, brilliant comfy plush chairs, reversing sensors, and it still reminds me of the sort of car I lusted after as a wee boy - Jaguars, Rolls Royce's and such like.
Fuel consumption is a little disappointing, but then it is an automatic, and it will still return 50+ when cruising down the motorway.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
