Pleasant small car
Added: 23rd of July 2020
Having done some research on the internet checking a number of smaller cars on the market I decided that the Rover 25 would be a good choice.. I wanted to switch from diesel to petrol as well as finding a smaller car than my old Volvo V40 estate of which I was very fond. The price for the Rover seemed about middle of the range for it's year and mileage at £1,000 with my former car taken in part exchange. It seemed in very good condition and drove nicely on the way home from the dealer. But it needed some pricey repairs very soon, some of which were probably my fault re the head gasket. After these repairs were done in February the car has been superb. It is fairly nippy and comfortable. It sailed through its service and the MOT without any advisories. The bill for both came to only £135.00 which was really good. I have been lucky enough to find a Rover MG specialist very near where I live. These cars are very good for what they are if you want a cheap runabout. They are not as refined as modern cars but run well, appear to have good engines and have a good record for reliability once the head gasket is properly sorted out and maintained. I believe that parts and insurance costs are relatively low. Visibility is very good all round and the boot is roomy for a small car of only 4 metres long. I recommend it as a cheap and practical car which is very nice to drive.
