The Rover 25 is a revamped 200 and i have just recieved a new 03 reg . It drives like a dream and the power steering makes it glide through the corners. I have extras such as reversing sensors which make it get into the tightest spaces with confidence. The air con is lovely and cool and the alloy wheels make it stand out from the crowd. A downside is that the stereo is placed in the lower part of the dash and makes the driver have to look away from the road to change or check the display. The up side is that my model has steering wheel adjusters for the Stereo but no display high up . All in the car performs very well and you feel the response when revving the engine. ..

Its now 6 months since I changed my car from a Corsa to MG ZR based on Rover 25. The reason I chose this car is because I thought it was a slightly more stylish version of the Rover 25. With its body kit and colour it appeals to people of my age group (17-25) because of its good looks, easy maitenance and cheap insurance, an ideal first or second car. My car is on an 02 plate 60000 miles. Before purchaseing this car I was a bit dubious as I had heard some stories about poor reliability and difficulty to get new parts. Two days after I bought it the cam-belt went, which the garage I bought it from apologised for and fixed free of charge. Only other problem was ... Read the complete review

I bought the Rover 25 to replace my awesome little Saxo VTS, since my little boy had recently been born and so I had to leave my boy racer days behind me .. plus I needed a 5 door car and I needed something cheaper to run! I found the Rover to be a big dissapointment! Within 2 weeks of buying the dam thing, the head gasket went .. luckily for me it was still under warranty. Also, being that I dropped from a lighter 1.6l car to a heavier 1.4l car I obviously noticed a big drop in power! In fact there is no power in the Rover ... at all! Shortly after the head gasket was repaired, the aerial snapped off with me, leaving the but firmly screwed into ... Read the complete review

I just got this car last week and I totally love it I think it is a lot better than a Corsa. The handling is great the power steering is brill, it looks gorgeous and you can do a lot with it. I did find one or two wee problems with it whenever I put my foot down going over 70mph it felt really rough and bumpy I found this quite odd as it's a 1.6 I don't know if it is just my one like that? don't get me wrong its a really nippy car and the take off is great. Also the stereo is really badly positioned I was changing a cd the other day and totally veered on to the other side of the road luckily no one was there. The car is very economical and great for new or ... Read the complete review
