History
bought Nov 2015 93k on clock.....on recommendation of mate "great car for £440...new this new that etc."....within 3 weeks coolant disappearing, various diagnosis` resulting in total HGF.... replaced engine 66k on clock, needed new clutch, flywheel etc. ran 5 miles before coolant pump died, (one of the new thisnewthat items)....mechanic gave up after engine change...doesn`t want to see a rover again till he`s dead, he`s 50 odd mind and totally old skool.....now awaiting news of coolant pump replacement field trials....if anyone has a rover size hole they need filling feel free to ring....cost to date £936...I could have bought a car for that

Update.... got the car back after all that work and seems to be running perfectly! Done about 300 miles so far ...fingers crossed..............couple of months and 2000 miles later, still running really well, almost fun to drive, it goes round roundabouts like **** on a stick which was a surprise after my early experiences with it...I can get a petrol lawnmower in the boot with the shelf out which I couldn`t do with my 2 litre clarus saloon, pretty good on juice too

to be honest I haven`t found it at all entertaining to be driving or not driving this car
Wheel and Tire
they are pretty good for a grand, and the handbrake works too!
