Which used Rover 75 estate should I buy?

Go for the diesel. This 2.0 CDTi engine comes courtesy of Rover's one-time owner, BMW. It is a hard worker, but smooth with it. It's also capable of reaching high mileages without causing grief.

Of the petrols, the 1.8 is fine if you take it easy, but the 1.8 turbo is much better. We'd avoid the 2.5, which feels limp for a V6, has an unhealthy thirst for fuel and may need expensive repairs.
