I have never been a person to chop and change my cars, mostly because of my financial commitments. I have only owned three cars since 1998, and two of them have been Rover’s. Many people laugh at Rover vehicles, sometimes being termed “the poor mans BMW’, or unfairly joked on how they may fall...

I’ve just sold my Rover 400 after owning it for the last 5 years so it’s an ideal time to reflect on owning this car. If you are thinking of buying a Rover 45, then this will also be applicable as it’s an updated version of the 400. Two weeks after starting my first time job after university, my...

So boring I never even gave it a name.

Please bear with me. I am a girl. I have no idea about such things as horsepower/0-60 times and all that jazz. If you want to find out all that stuff, I’m sure someone knows it. Or you could get a Glass’s car guide. I do know what my experience of this car has been though, so I shall...

“Buy the 420 diesel instead!”

published 20/12/2005

Performance, economy, value

Dated/cramped interior, possible engine issues

A Rover 400 wasn't exactly my first choice of car - in fact my dad bought it for me after my previous car gave up the ghost. However I warmed to it, despite some flaws. The engine is the 1.6litre Rover K-series with double-overhead camshafts and 16 valves. Some engines are still playing catch-up...

“Well, I love it.”

published 23/09/2000

Features, build quality, performance.

Handling in corners.

I have a Rover 416 Sli (1996 P reg). Personally, I love this car. It has a nice feel to it, and as it's an SLI it's fairly well specified. Alloys, ABS, all-round electric windows, electric sunroof, electric mirrors and a lovely interior. I often see S and T reg versions and at a glance I can't...

British made comfort

Bad publicity

I am appalled by the latest survey, which places Rover second from last. They only just ahead of Alfa Romeo. I am on my third Rover, all have performed very well. Previously, I have had Ford, Vauxhall and Renault and they can't even touch Rover for comfort and reliability. Surely the fact that a...

The car in question is a 1996 P-Reg version. This car was bought on the reputation of Rovers being reliable and comfortable cars. The car has been in the family from new and has always been very reliable and cheap to run. Servicing has always been done through a main Rover dealer, and the service...

“416 GTI what a nice car”

published 04/03/2001

Comfortable, fun to drive

Lack of space for a family

I purchused my Rover 416 Gti back in 1997, at the time it was 7 years old, but it only had 18,000 miles on the clock, I payed £5000 for the car, and it had all the extras, Leather interior, electric windows and sunroof etc. The car drives brilliantly, and is very comfortable, this is my first...

Problem with Manifold

I have owned a P reg. Rover 416i for the last three and a half years. It's been pretty reliable and I have been generally pleased with my purchase. It provides a comfortable drive and I have driven an average 12,000 miles a year. There are a couple of features which irritate me though, I have...

The maker

I was genuinely over the moon to be given a Rover 400 as my company car in 2006 (don't ask - the company was very tight!) it was a huge upgrade from my K Reg Fiesta that I was driving at the time. The Rover had everything - it was a nice size, VERY comfortable, looked very classy and was...

I owned my Rover 416 for 2 years. I bought it back in 1999. At the time it was 5 years old. And had 70,000 miles on the clock. I have found it extremely reliable. But its looks and the availability of extra parts let it down. Firstly it looks like a square lump of rust! And trying to find parts...

Reputation of a bad motor

I have owned my 416 si for about 10 years. She looked brand new when I bought her from a dealer and I have kept her looking the same ever since. I did add original equipment leather seating and had the door panels re-covered in leather to match. No mechanical problems but my mechanic winced when...

This is the review of the 1993 Rover 416 I bought 5 months ago and sold 1 month ago. I bought it needing a few things done to the engine and with 181,000 miles on the clock. After fixing it up I started driving it occasionally. I drove it to Ayr and back (450 miles) just before I sold it and it...
