1988 Rover - Austin Metro Mayfair 1.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
Fuel tank, suspension ball joints, brake pipes, rear suspension arms, suspension units.
This was my third metro. I don't know why.
These cars, especially the models under the Austin name are disappointing. The engines & gearboxes usually last well however the rest of the car falls apart around you. Rust is a particular problem around the front of the car. The hydragas suspension is costly to fix and gives a poor ride. Cheap to buy but maintenance a constant chore.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
