2004 Rover - Austin 75 2litre turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Lamentable Quality Control
Noisy clutch bearing
Faulty Clutch (squeals when pulling away)
Low speed rattle from under bonnet.
My local dealer knew all about the faulty clutch. "We have ten others just like it awaiting replacement". Clutch needs to be replaced, but dealer is unable to obtain the parts.
Low speed rattle is being blamed on faulty engine mountings!!!. These also need replacing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Rover 75 2.0 litre Tourer purchased new May 2003, clutch failed on 18/11/04 after 9000 miles, attributed to worn clutch plate and driver error (dealer later apologised for comment). Dealer explained asbestos withdrawn from clutch facing by manufacturer for Health & Safety reasons.
Bill to replace over £600. Any suggestions on course of action?

Don't you get a 3 yr warranty with the car?
