"Rover 75 Diesels"

I'm on my 2nd Rover 75 now, a saloon with all the bells and whistles...I had the estate version on recommendation of a truly knowledgeable friend in the motor trade and loved it..then the leather clad, sunroofed Connosieur turned up at a laughable price so I went for it...

Both versions offer a seriously cheap way to get a good strong car, wich is both comfortable and economical...mileage claims from fans vary between 45 and 55 mpg on the diesel 2ltr engine and that's got to be good enough..They'll tow anything and run all day on motorways or round the town...

The interiors are fitted with enough toys to keep even the biggest gadget freak happy and electrically they're usually pretty good..a few ABS sensor problems and a bugger of a system for fuel delivery ( twin pumps) often means it's worth being nice to your local MG Rover supplier, and God help you if you pop the clutch..£700-£850 for the repair isn't going to make anyone laugh...but all in all this is a very underrated car for the money..the MG versions are the same vehicle with different badging and a few suspension tweaks..worth the extra money ? ...you decide.

Insurance is Group 10, spares are easy to find and it's always nice to fly the flag !

Most other Rovers ( especially 1.8 petrol engines) are horrible and will eat themselves regularily...this model, with manual gearbox, is different...if you're not worried about looking cool, flash and trendy this is the thinking mans ( or womans) answer to comfort, reliability and economy... Get one.
