Rover 25 1.4 iS (103ps) 3d (2000/W) - Owner Review

I'm no Schumacher, but it feels pretty good to me - no nasty shocks and always feels stable.

Value

3 out of 5

Good, as long as you haggle them down, but depreciation is not the best. Equipment is OK, and seems to be better since I bought my car (typical, eh?).

Costs

4 out of 5

Good economy (38 mpg), three-years free servicing, cheap insurance - at least it was until I had to make a claim.

Driving

4 out of 5

I'm no Schumacher, but it feels pretty good to me - no nasty shocks and always feels stable.

Performance

3 out of 5

Fairly nippy in town, but could do with some more overtaking power on faster roads. Also, I always seem to have to change down on an uphill.

Reliability

5 out of 5

No problems so far...

Image

4 out of 5

Seems to have a 'slippers and pipe' image, but I love the look of the car - and at the end of the day, I'm the one who has to live with it...

Comfort

3 out of 5

Seats a little firm on the longer journeys. The ride can also be a little firm, and can be a little noisy on the motorways. No complains about the amount of space.

It's still outside....

Service

4 out of 5

I've had few dealings with the dealership, apart from regular servicing, but they have always been polite and efficient.
