Cheap for a very good reason... it's junk
Head gasket failiure.
Seats wearing out.
Electric windows do not operate correctly.
Misfire at random at all engine speeds.
Radiator fallen to bits.
Uneven tire wear due to worn suspension bushes.
Cutting out when hot, difficulty in restarting engine.
Broken down on me twice in space of 100 miles.
Rust on front wings, rear arches, bonnet.
Rear bumper started to fall off.
Numerous oil leaks.
This is the worst car I have ever owned, it is badly made, unreliable pile of junk.
I have only managed to cover 200 miles in the car since owning it, most of the time it has been off the road being repaired.
I have been unable to trace the poor running fault despite trying everything.
However it is cheap for a 200bhp car, but if you buy one you will soon find out why. You can do much better for your money.
No wonder Rover is in the state it is in, they have got themselves a bad reputation building cars like this. If you buy a Rover buy one with a Honda engine. Rover engined ones are troublesome.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
