1999 Rover - Austin Mini Reviews
1999 Rover - Austin Mini Classic 1.3mpi from UK and Ireland
Excellent fun for short journeys
There has been little problems with the car with the exception of new battery's being required mainly due to lack of use.
New battery in 2001.
New battery in 2003.
New battery in 2005.
Rear wheel brake seized at 3500 miles.
No other problems to date.
The car is only used as a bit of summer fun and garaged the rest of the time.
The drive is excellent fun and it is a blast flying around the country lanes.
The ride is very firm and as I'm over 6 feet tall I do find it a bit cramped on longer journeys.
I always service the car fully every year even though it only does a few hundred miles a year and never comes out in the rain. This has proved a good way to keep the car reliable.
These must be the most fun things on four wheels that I've ever driven it will always make you smile and people always comment on my little red devil.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Minor irritations, such as faulty fuel gauge, exhaust bracket bent.
You can't help grinning when you're driving one of these. Gets you noticed!
Don't pay full price - plenty of dealers willing to talk.
