In 1998 I bought my first Rover car, a 400 1.6 Si; I used this car for two years without having any problems. I sold this car in 2000 and until October 2005 I tried four good and more expensive brands, but I couldn't get the same joy and satisfaction while driving these cars.
So I bought a Rover 45 and I am still using this car. I am very glad to have a Rover again. After driving my car several times, my wife also decided to have a Rover and we bought another Rover for her. I won't think about changing my car for years.
I bought this low mileage 54-plate hatchback five months ago, having previously done 92,000 miles in a turbodiesel Rover 400 hatchback, and found it to be excellent.
I really like the 45. It is comfortable and pleasing to drive. It does 50mpg on long journeys and has so far (at 27,000 miles) proved totally reliable. I drove to Santiago di Compostella in northern Spain and back (over 3000 miles) in September, and thoroughly enjoyed the whole drive.
It has good acceleration, and is great at climbing hills. It's a very practical hatchback. I am very happy with this car.
I have only just bought this car against everyone's advice, largely due to the fact that Rover are no longer in business. I have had no problems with parts when it has been serviced and find it ecconomical and comfortable. I am really glad I bought the car and wouldn't hesitate to buy another.
Rather underated. Handles very well - precise steering , 03 model even better than previous one, goes very well - lots of torque from the 1.8 petrol engine (max torque is at about 2,700 rpm),very comfortable and economical, good size boot. This car has a lot going for it.
