Rover 25 (99-05)


4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I like to think that the car gives me a sporty look-I know it's a re-vamped 200 but isn't the MG ZR just a re-vamped 25?

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They all like it.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes. You get a lot for your money and to be honest I think you get street cred.

What are you likely to buy next?
No idea.

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
May 2007

Did you get a good deal and why?
I think I got a good deal-they garage gave me £500 in part-ex for my 1.5 Skoda Felicia 1.3 LXi with just over 30,000 on the clock. I was happy with that. The car was the same colour (silver) and had a far higher spec than my previous model. I need a car that offers me-tinted windows and power steering they where the main things I needed-the Rover offered me that and far more.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Wanted a cheap-high spec motor.

What was the dealer like?
Great-no problems-reckon I could have been cheeky and asked for £500PX and 6 months tax and probably would have got it. They are a great garage and really helpful.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Smooth and powerful for the 1.4 version. I blew off a Saxo at the lights and was really impressed.

What's it like to park?

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nope-touch-wood. Starts first time and goes like a dream.

What's most practical about your car?
Fairly economical on fuel and large boot space.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Gadgets-we love em right? On my car the main was tinted windows and power steering-both needed for health reasons. But the model I have come with as standard. Electric windows, power steering, central locking, alarm, cd player, air-con, tinted windows, alloys. Like them all! Just added (geniune Rover parts) front fog lights as all the wirng is in. The wiring is also in for electric mirrors...maybe a new project.
