Mine is in pensioner gold and don't the Jack the Lads get a shock if they try to cut me up! It flies.

Rover 25 (99-05)

Value

5 out of 5

Bought with 4125 miles on the clock, 15 months old for £8450. Great value, with a good value on trade-in too.

Costs

2 out of 5

I get 25mpg if I am lucky, unless on a run, when if I get 30mpg I am happy.

Driving

Performance

4 out of 5

Very fast and, what is better, unsuspected!

Reliability

4 out of 5

So far, 17,600 miles on the clock and not a thing gone wrong, except for new door seal on driver's side.

Image

2 out of 5

Ok. Not the greatest, although with the big alloys as standard, it looks a cut above the normal 25s and tons better than the 200s. Not as high an image as the MG25, but just as good a car.

Comfort

2 out of 5

A bit hard suspension and ride, but it is a GTi.

I have had no trouble, but the reports are not too good.

Service

4 out of 5

Local garages are good and as it is still less than 3 years old, it is being serviced by main dealers.

Problems

Bodywork
Minor stone chips.
