Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Rover 75 saloon?

The 75 was almost certainly the best-built Rover ever. Early cars had their problems, but these were sorted out reasonably quickly and owners generally report that the 75 is well screwed together and trouble-free.

However, there are weak spots. Front coil springs have broken on some cars and it's not uncommon for the motor that operates the electric seat adjustment to fail.
