Rover 25 Impression
Added: 13th of October 2013
Bought this car 4.5 years ago from a Peugeot garage. It was low mileage & only one previous owner and had a 3 year warranty. It has been very reliable, and only once let me down when there was a problem with the ignition key barrel which was sorted by a local vehicle key company. It is economical to run and to service, can take 4 passengers, has plenty of room in the boot, which is extended by removing the rear seat back and tipping the squab, and goes as fast as I want to go! After having it serviced under warranty at the Peugeot garage, I moved to the former Rover dealer which still has Rover-trained mechanics, and pay monthly for an annual service and MOT, which is a good deal. My only quibble with it is that is doesn't have grab handles or coat hooks. According to published used car sale prices it is worth virtually nothing now, so I shall keep it until it collapses. It is my 5th Rover, and most have been very reliable and easy to fix in spite of Peugeot & Nissan main dealers trying to convince me that parts are not available because Rovers are no longer made! Have they seen the number still on the road, not just here but abroad as well?
