220Di Turbo same engine as 220SLdi or not

AdvantagesIf good engine, good reliability

DisadvantagesLack of rear space, unreliable versions about

"...from a design engineer at Rover Longbridge). Seats and steering wheel not fully adjustable. Really annoying plastic extrusion on under dash-board which catches your shin if you are not careful getting in and out. Problems on this car compared to the SLDi - aerial now no longer removal even with pliers! - rear wash/wipe fails regularly. Front tyres need replacing soon even though the car has only done 12000 miles. Brakes fading badly now and handbrake ..." Read review

This dog's a bitch

AdvantagesFuel economy when the car runs!

DisadvantagesEverything, except economy (when the car works)

"I purchased a Brand new Rover 220 SDI to replace my aging Astra Turbo Diesel in June 1997, this was after BMW had acquired the Group. I was first attracted to this car because of the shape and features offered and the press coverage of the car at the time. On Receiving the vehicle it was fitted with the wrong steering wheel this meant I was unable to use all the equipment (Radio/Cassette/CD Player and horn) I was also unable to view the instrument ..."

In short? Buy one!

AdvantagesBullet proof engine, reliability, running costs

DisadvantagesImage

"...and exceptional on motorway trips. The Rover is no slouch and can comfortably chug along at 90 miles a hour all day or so I’m told, officer. It accelerates well at speed, and the brakes certainly never let me down. Cold morning starts were never a problem, and although you could tell it was a diesel from the engine noise in the winter it was generally a quiet car. Being a high mileage driver I found the Rover to be perfectly comfortable, ..." Read review

AdvantagesEconomical and fast

DisadvantagesExpensive rover spare parts

"I bought my Rover 220 SDi New Three years ago after trading in a I year old Rover214i because I though the 214 was gutless. Not so with The 220 SDi It accelerates quickly has plenty of torque goes up steep hills in fifth gear no problem. I have had 114 mph out of it and then I decided to slow down but there was more in it. It averages 50 miles per gallon and I seldom drive at 58mph and usually only do 12 miles in one go so on longer distances or slower ..." Read review

Costing me too much!

AdvantagesValue for money

DisadvantagesUnreliable

"I bought a 1999 Rover 220D back in August.... thought I was getting a bargain for £1,500 and thought I would be able to run it for a few months then sell it without losing too much money. Well the car was in good condition, I like the look of them, they are not exactly sporty but I had a spoiler so it looked cool enough. Its not a particularly fast car, but not particularly slow... it's ok when the turbo kicks in but it's not too fast at going ..." Read review

Not Sure about it

AdvantagesFuel Economy

DisadvantagesRattles and niggling problems.

"I purchased a 1999 Rover SDi in April 2000 with less than 1,000 on the clock. Presently, it has 16,000 on the clock due to a large amount of business miles. I have enjoyed happy motoring but I am now starting to notice a few annoying problems. The central locking and therefore alarm has decided to play up and I can no longer lock the door using the remote mechanism. This problem will soon be sorted under warranty but it means for the short term I ..." Read review

Great little Car

AdvantagesGood Small Car

DisadvantagesSecurity not as good as it could be

"I purchased mine second hand, 5 dr, hatchback, 2l diesel, turbo injection engine. This car is great round town, small turning cirle, easy to park and nippy of the lights. Down the motor way it handles nicly too. Ive taken mine across euope without any problems. It easily holds >100mph. The only negative is the alarm and imobiliser. Although thaterty level 2, i think it might be too easy to get around. Two of these have been taken locally recently, ..." Read review

Student's first car

AdvantagesGood fuel usage

DisadvantagesNot very silent

"This is my first car, I bought the 2.0L Sdi version, 1998 year, used with 112,000 miles on the clock. It is quite fast for a small car and it really flies up steep banks and has got canny good acceleration. It drinks diesel when I drive it in third gear all the time, but that's to be expected. It has what I think, good mpg when I drive it properly. The wipers don't work right on the slow speed, apparantly this is a common fault easily fixed. ..." Read review
