What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It's excellent over long distances and smoothes out bumps like a luxury car

Against The rear seats are cramped and you get a much sharper drive from its German rivals

Verdict It's a comfortable, refined motorway hauler with a superb, supple ride

Go for… 2.0 CDT Club

Avoid… V6s

Rover 75 Saloon
  • 1. There’s a wooden dash and big, inviting seats, with plenty of retro touches, such as sepia dials
  • 2. The 1.8 petrol engine can overheat and blow its head gasket if the coolant isn’t kept topped up
  • 3. It’s not uncommon for the motor that operates the electric seat adjustment to fail
  • 4. Look for uneven tyre wear. It may show suspension problems that can be hard to fix
  • 5. The 75 is the best-built Rover. Early cars had their problems, but these were sorted out reasonably quickly
