1991 Rover - Austin 800 820 Turbo 2.0 petrol turbo from UK and Ireland
Fast, luxurious and the best of British
Stereo packed up at 27,000 miles.
Both front window motors failed at 39,000 miles.
Tyres wore very quickly.
Aside the two electrical faults and quick wearing the tyres, the Rover 820 turbo was a faultlessly reliable and well built luxury car.
Performance was also excellent, but running costs were very high.
Good value at £17,000 for a one year old high performance luxury car.
Residuals were good with a £10,000 private sale two years later.
Comfort and equipment levels were both superb.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
