What should I look for in a used Rover 45 hatchback?
It may surprise you to learn that the British-built Rover 45 held its head relatively high in the What Car? JD Power customer satisfaction surveys: it has managed a mid-table finish.
Of course, the 45's not without its problems, and blown head gaskets on four-cylinder petrol engines are not an uncommon fault. The tell-tale signs include a dipstick that looks like it's coated in mayonnaise.
