    My car

    I use my tourer as a taxi and have put on 30000 miles since buying it in March 2008. My customers like it and I find it an excellent car to drive.The only complaint i have is changing the headlamp bulbs an absolute P.I.T.A.

    My car

    Great cabin, well appointed and superb to drive. Boot space enough for most, but wheel arches rob you of those vital inches.

    Reliability? Two clutches, one gearbox, cyliner head gasket, four boot lock mechanisms, two engine management systems and one radiator - all replaced under extended warranty.

    The Shetland weather is the final 'death-nail' as the bodywork literally drops off.

    I have owned Rovers for years and this motor takes the biscuit. From here on now, I will buy Korean, Japanese, German, etc...

    Promised so much, paid £17,000.....now worthless.

    My car

    I bought this car at 4 yrs old with 40K miles with an LPG conversion by previous owner, as I'm doing 24K annually. The car does 24 mpg, but as gas is 2.6 times cheaper than petrol that makes 24 mpg into 62! The car has ben unreliable, needing clutch, clutch hydraulics, water pump, cam gaskets etc by 50 K. miles I've now done 69Kmiles. Reliability apart, the 2 lt V6 is underpowered, ok at cruising speed, love the goodies

    My car

    My fabulous Rover 75 CDT Tourer is just fantastic. I’ve got to say it’s the finest car I’ve ever owned and I feel like I’m driving a Rolls Royce rather than a Rover. I purchased it in June 2006 and it’s been marvellous.

    The amount of people who are astonished by the sheer quality of this car is amazing, I’ve had comments from strangers admiring my car from afar to people giving me a flash of their headlights as I drive past. I’m perplexed, as to why these cars didn’t do better whilst they were in production because they easily match other cars in their respective class. These cars are completely underrated and are now a bargain for anyone looking for a family car. My CDT gives me and my family excellent comfort as well as easily the 50mpg quoted on this site.

    When the sad times comes that I have to part with her and buy another car I’ll be looking again at a Rover 75, because there just the business but I suppose I’m bias.
