    My car

    I have only owned my 75 for just over a month now. What a car. It's one of the most comfortable cars I have ever driven. I wish I had discovered it sooner.

    I have the auto box in mine and up to now have had no problems the power on kick-down is brilliant.

    My car

    Many people say the Rover 75 is a bad car but I don't think they have given it a chance. To drive it is fabulous, quiet, comfortable and very fast.

    It is a shame that Rover is coming to an end and it will be sad to see this car go.

    My car

    I have had this car for almost a year now. From day one I did not like it. It looks like a very nice car. That's right - it looks like one, but it was the worst decision I had ever made on a vehicle.

    Rover was very nice to me before I bought the car. But the week after I bought it, I realised the air-con did not work. I took the car back to them and they did not want to know. The whole summer I drove without air-conditioning. They said that "we are ordering the part for it".

    It was a horible drive. I could never get in a good seating position and I had so many problems with that car - from the engine over-heating all the time to the lights not working, the seat was always creaking, I could go on and on.

    If you are looking on this website for advice what to do, which you are (otherwise you would not be here!), do not buy this car.

    If you look all over the news, it's all about how Rover seems to be going out of business. I wonder why.

    My car

    I have had 2 75s from new. They are a very comfortable and easy to drive.

    Has anyone else experienced the following problems: Rear doors tend to stick and can become inoperable Uneven wear on the rear tyres ie because the allignment needs to be reset?

    What other problems has anyone encountered with the 75s?
