What should I look for in a used Rover Cityrover hatchback?

Rover has an extremely mixed record when it comes to reliability. And, although it seems that Rover's older models generally fare worst, the CityRover is a different kettle of fish as it's a re-badged Tata.

We've heard reports that oil and water leaks are commonplace, and that the cheap interior develops rattles easily. The door locks have also experienced their fair share of faults.
