1996 Rover - Austin 800 i 2.7 from UK and Ireland
Forget the new cars. Get one of these!
Absolutely nothing at all.
This car is the fastest car I have ever owned. A boy racer in his little Saxo tried it on this morning and I absolutely blew him away and more.
Seriously quick and grunty.
Very good on fuel (28mpg)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

What do you expect from a 2.7i V6 engine, when most boy racers have up to 1.6 engines?
The 800 is the most unreliable poorly built cars. They are also a right pipe and slippers car!!
Anyway, each to their own...

I agree, I owned a 1994 820 when I was 20 (three years ago), very good for cruising the 150 miles to and from uni, but the engines tend to fall apart, we had 3 rovers in our family and they all had problems with the head gasket! However this was the 2.0 litre. I ended up getting rid of it after a few months because of the ABS failing and a new pump would cost more than the car was worth! Now drive a volvo 440, which is A lot slower and more boring, with no refinements at all, but it has never let me down in the 2 years that I owned it (yet)
