1993 Rover - Austin 800 Sterling 2.7 from UK and Ireland
The Rover 800 is the Great British Secret
It has to be said that I have had no issues with the wonderful 2.7 engine. The only problems were caused by myself when converting the Climate Control system from R12 to R134a. This was in so much that it cost more money than estimated.
I have driven many new cars and still have not found one that gives me the same drive satisfaction as my Sterling, it always puts a smile on my face.
I have changed the shock absorbers to Koni ones and this has improved the total road handling at high speeds, and I have indeed embarrassed a few BMW's while driving through Europe.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
