Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That I'm awesome. I like that Rover is considered to be an old peoples car, that way when i stick to speed limits people think I'm old.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They hated the idea of a Rover but now that I have it, they love it!

Would you buy this car again and why?
hhhmm... Yeah i think i would. Its just a nice place to be. I do really like my Rover.

What are you likely to buy next?
No idea, and I don't care for now, my Rover is ace. I would like a Landy though.

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Independent

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£1,500

When did you buy the car?
March 2010

Did you get a good deal and why?
I think i did, It was so well kept, I heard a fault with these cars is the headgasket but that had been recently changed. low miles and a fair amount of service history.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
When i went looking at cars, this was the best. It had the least miles and the newest within my budget.

What was the dealer like?
Ace, I would buy from them again. Really friendly, not pushy.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Its awesome, it handles really well, and on the motorway it leaves other cars in its dust.

What's it like to park?
Its good, whether the driver is good is a different matter haha. But seriously, its easy to park even though I'm not used to such a wide car.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
So far so good. One problem, although my friends with Rovers have the same issue, when engaging reverse it doesn't always want to stick. It has no cup holders which is really annoying!! I didn't know cars could come without cup holders!!

What's most practical about your car?
Its huge boot! Its not the biggest car around but certainly not the smallest, I recently did 300 miles in a day with 2 friends and it was fine.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
I like my walnut dash, I don't know if its an option but I do like to brag about my walnut dash. The CD player is good although that wasn't a Rover thing, the previous owner did that, still good though.
