There's quite a bit to write when it comes to a car, my Rover 25 looks just like the one in the picture although mine is a three door. The wheels in the (Tiny) picture look like mine too which is unusual as I have bought a set of MG ZR alloys. If you were to look in the auto trader for cars at a similar price to my 2002 (52) Rover 25 you'd find plenty of choice and as much as I can't make your mind up for you I can tell you what I like and dislike about my car. Starting with outside, there are several colours available but in my opinion there are only two worth considering, the gold which I have and is by far the best and there is a nice, vibrant ...

I don't know why I purchased my Rover 25, except that it was cheap and I needed a cheap low mileage car that would get me from A to B. To be honest, it did give me two and a half years of trouble free motoring before things started to go wrong, but it then started to suffer from some quite serious and expensive problems despite having only covered 52000 miles. I did test drive the car but should probably have spent more time with it before buying. I found the car to be quite unpleasant to drive, it was (for me) too lightweight on the handling and didn't "stick to the road" very well on corners, the steering was woolly and not very ...

Up until last year I did not really have an interest in Rover cars. I liked the Land Cruisers but never really considered owning a Rover. I have been driving for only two years and passed my test last year. My first car was a Nissan Micra and it was in this car that I passed my test. A month later we were offered a deal by Rover whereby we were given 25% discount on any of the Rover 25 models. I could not resist the offer. It was not my ideal choice but the discount on offer was a good incentive.I chose this particular 25 because the price was good and I was given three years service and warranty. I could not fault that. A month after purchasing the car and ... Read the complete review

*Sept 2012 - I have updated this review to be more detailed. About 2 years ago I upgraded the little 1.1 T reg Peugeot 106 that I had to my Rover 25. I bought a 52 plate Rover 25 MG ZR to give it it's full title. This was an upgrade in both car size and engine size for me at the time. I am not a 'petrol head,' just your average driver, and this review is written from that point of view. === From the Outside... === From the outside the car looks nice enough. It has a classic hatchback style shape to it. I am personally a fan of the hatchback car - I think the shape looks much sleeker than, say, an estate car. Not that I'm putting ...

I would like to highly praise this much maligned motor car. My rover has done 50,000 miles from new, and has never had missed a beat, or had any reliability problems what so ever. I understand the head gaskets can fail etc but have found on all my cars that I have owned, the trick is to get them warmed up before driving off. This ensures the engine is at the proper working temperature and this is imperative to longevity of any engine. The bodywork and fittings do not deserve the criticisms thrown at it, and all in all it is a crying shame that the british motorist did not appreciate a good all round vehicle. And I would not hesitate buying another rover if it were ... Read the complete review
