    My car

    I bought a 2002 2.6 Connissuer with full leather and all those lovely British touches.

    Its an auto and a pleasure to drive. My only complaint is the fuel economy. I can't get more than 24mpg nomatter whether I'm on a straight run or around town.

    This aside, this is a unique and beautiful car. I can actually see why MGR went under. It must have cost a fortune to make this car. It exzudes quality and is very comfortble.

    I should have bought the 2ltr CDTi though!

    My car

    We got a fantastic deal on this car - bought it new for £10800.

    Even if we had payed £19000 we would still of been happy. Compared to the finish on the new BMW 5 and 3 series these cars have been verry underated and have a unique style.

    It's nice to see that a company didn't follow the European code of design. It's a damn shame that Rover and MG have gone. The British have yet let another company go to the dogs!

    My car

    This is possibly the most comfortable car I have ever driven. My second one was the 131bhp diesel (BMW powered), which is far better than my earlier diesel turbo.

    Sadly, the demise of Rover has prompted a change - coupled with the low driving position.

    Both cars required work to the electrics, reversing sensors, central locking and computer faults. Both cars turned in approx 40mpg with the 131bhp unit proving the more capable for motorway cruising. Overall, allowing for the electrical faults, this is still a car I will remember with affection.

    My car

    A very comfortable car. It drives very well at speed, like a train on tracks. We have the automatic gearbox, which makes it a very easy and comfortable car to drive, particularly around town. Day-to-day running is reasonable, but tyres are expensive, and I shudder to think what major repairs to the powertrain might cost.
