1993 Rover - Austin Montego DLX 2.0 TD from UK and Ireland
Cheap way to move lots of stuff
Roll-bar bush - £10.
Head gasket - £38 (did belt at same time)
Central locking doesn't like the damp.
Slow off the mark unless you wind it up and slip the clutch. Plenty of power once the turbo gets going though.
Two folding seats in the boot are handy for those times when the kids' friends want to come too.
Far more internal space than modern equivalents.
Nearly 60mpg on long smooth runs.
Suits my rather large and tall frame.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
