1994 Rover - Austin Metro Tahiti Special 1.1 from UK and Ireland
Keep it serviced and it will not let you down.
The rear wheel arches are very rusty. This is common on all Metros.
The back section of the exhaust had to be replace at 37000 miles.
The middle section of the exhaust had to be replaced at 41000 miles.
The reliability of this car is fantastic. Not once has it let me down. Even on a cold morning, it started every time.
In my opinion the Rover Metro is like a go-kart. Even with a 1.1 it was very nippy and pulling away from traffic lights it could beat most other cars.
People would say it is a very small car. Well they use to say it was a small car until I managed to get a flat-packed double bed in the boot with the rear seats down.
Over the last couple of years that I have had this car, it has never let me down. I would go out and by another Rover Metro any day.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
