Rover 25 (99-05)

Value

3 out of 5

Diminished £1500 between its 3rd and 4th year of having it, so not too bad.

Costs

2 out of 5

The parts seem to be quite expensive, but have had various work carried out under the warranty. Would recommend renewing it every year.

Driving

Drives very well. Only complaint is slightly soft brakes.

Performance

3 out of 5

Needs revving to get it to go, but when it's going has a lot of power from the adequate engine.

Reliability

3 out of 5

Never broken down on me, but little things keep going wrong such as window seals and the boot coming loose.

Image

3 out of 5

Fairly attractive if a few parts are changed. Can make the car look very good for cheap.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Not too bad. The centre console sticks out a bit too far for tall drivers.
