I've owned my Rover for about 2 years. It's a good looking, comfortable car, which I enjoy driving. It's a pleasure cruising along the motorway but not much fun when parking or manoeuvering in tight spaces. It has a high waist restricting visibilty especially to the rear.
It's packed with gadgets and accessories - in fact with its light leather upholstery it looks better inside than outside. The CD player is a joy to listen to and the climate control allows you to enjoy a one degree temperature difference from your passenger.
However, ever since I've owned the thing it has been dogged by, usually minor, electrical faults. The ABS has gone twice, cruise control twice, problems with the engine management system, brakes, lights - the list goes on and on. To make matters worse my local dealer in Poole is appalling. The first time I took it in they damaged both back tires, second time forgot to replace a plate covering the engine, the third time actually dented the bodywork on their hydraulic ramp. Furthermore it often takes ages to obtain spare parts and when they do arrive they are often outrageously overpriced. I'm about to change my car - I don't think I'll buy another Rover - any suggestions?
