1984 Rover - Austin SD1 Van Den Plas 3.5 V8 from Australia and New Zealand
A large smooth powerful car, comfortable and roomy
Nothing has gone wrong yet as I have only had it for 1 month.
Faults that have come with the car are,
Loose Drivers exterior handle.
A couple of broken dash switches.
Loose head lining.
This car is so smooth for a 20 year old car. Just pulls away from the traffic and leaves them well behind.
Has a stainless steel exhaust system and very quiet. I will change that as I want to hear the V8 rumble.
The large hatch area is great. Plenty of room for anything, even for sleeping in if away from home.And still has room for 5 people.
I have had other Rovers before, all V8's, but this is the best so far.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
