1991 Rover - Austin Metro 1.3 from UK and Ireland
I got the car for £40 on eBay with 6 months tax and MOT.
It was one step up from walking.
Rusty, grubby, horrible car. An engine which bunny hopped me down the street everyday, broken heater (in winter), tiny car. Felt very unsafe. Wind blew in from the seals in the windscreen. At 60mph it felt like it would blow the windscreen into the car.
I had gone from a mk2 Mondeo to this. I felt like I was driving a shoe. It was sooo small inside. Honestly I can't believe I owned it. It feels like a dream now.
Sold the car for 3 times what I paid for it three months after buying it, having done nothing to it.
I hated it. It had no charm or character. I got a Toyota Camry and it felt like I was driving a jumbo jet in comparison.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
