What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For The 75 is cheap, well equipped and practical, and comes with olde-worlde charm

Against Reliability problems

Verdict Feels like a car from a bygone age brought up to date, and it's a good load-carrier, too

Go for… 2.0 CDTi Connoisseur

Avoid… 2.5 V6 Connoisseur

Rover 75 Tourer
  • 1. Watch for leaking head gaskets on the V6 and 1.8 petrols
  • 2. Cooling fans sometimes pack up on cars after four to five years
  • 3. Clutches are a weak point, so check the gearchanges are smooth and the clutch bites properly
  • 4. Intruding rear suspension narrows the otherwise good boot
  • 5. The load area is deceptively roomy
