1995 Rover - Austin Metro LD 1.4 diesel from UK and Ireland
Cheap car for first time driver
Alternator (at 95K), that cost me about 100 pounds with labour, front brake disc (at 95K again) 60 pounds (oouch...)
Very easy to overheat, and watch out your water system, if that break and lead, your engine is in danger! (yeah I have my broke, and all water leak out from the front of car)
Beware of the suspension, esp right-back side.
Cheap, cheap and cheap!
5 pounds of diesel can run you at least 50-60 miles.
Have done abt 10K miles in half year, that save me lot of diesel money!
Still got enough power with 4 people in your car!
Accelation...poor...but I can still drive at 80-85 mph at M1.
Really good for daily town drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
