Review of "Rover 75 1.8"
The Rover 1.8 club (automatic)has too many faults, i was going to buy one earlier this year but was advised not too by a good friend of mine, let me takes you through the faults that have been found on this overated vehicle.1: Cam cover gaskets leaking due to torque relaxation
in other words the bolts on the Cam Cover are always coming loose.
2: Head Gasket always blowing, causing oil and water to mix.
this would be down to poor gasket design and cylinder heads warping.
this is due to a manufacturing problem as Rover are now fitting modified shocks on all new cars.
4: Rear doors stick and are difficult to open.
Door latch pivot point sticking.
This causes cambelt oil contamination which can weaken and lessen life of belt unless changed.
6: Water ingress.
Drain channels in bulk head are getting blocked and water is filling scuttle panel, then via heater into passenger footwell.
1: Cental locking operates when the volume control is adjusted via the steering wheel controls.2: MIL (maulfunction indicator lamp) coming on for no reason.
3: Coolent loss was a common problem on previous k series engines until modified inlet manifold gasket fitted.Overall this car is very underpowered due to 1800cc engine and automatic cvt box in a very heavy car.
Although this is bad report the Rover 75 has good points due to BMW design.
