1983 Rover - Austin Ambassador HLS 1.8 petrol from UK and Ireland
Very good considering it was a British Leyland product
Tyres needed replacing at 111,000 miles and again at 136,000 miles.
Brake cable broke at 118,000 miles.
Clock failed at 122,000 miles.
Tailgate catch broke at 129,000 miles.
Cylinder head needed replacing at 135,000 miles.
Engine exploded at 141,000 miles and wrote car off.
A comfortable and spacious large family car.
Smooth to drive and cheap to run.
Well built and reliable for its age.
Finally came to an end after 141,000 miles and 13 years, when the engine blew up.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
