I was in desperate want of a new car, but unfortunately don't know a lot about cars, and did not have a big budget. Lucky for me, my stepdad runs a small used cars business, so I had a few choices if I brought one from him. This was one of the choices. When my stepdad said 'Rover', I think I had a typical response by thinking 'an old man's car'. However, when I saw it I quite liked the shape. The back end looked really nice, a lot like the similar but much cool MG ZR styles, which I would've loved but I'm afraid was out of my budget! I assumed as soon as I started the engine I assumed it would conk out straight away and I'd have trouble getting it ... Read the complete review

I owned by Rover 25 for 4 years and have to say I was very happy with it. Personally, although Rover's have always had a bad rep, I've owned a few and never had a problem. The 25 is nothing flash, but I found it to be mechanically sound and a good runner. Mine was 2 years old when I bought it - I was the 2nd owner. The interior is nothing special, but it does the job. It has the obligatory small area of fake walnut on the dash (I've never unerstood that as a design idea), but other than that it was all plain black plastic and looked neat and tidy. To drive I found it smooth and comfortable. It was nippy to drive around town and always moved off ... Read the complete review

I am writing this review as a previous owner of one of these nightmares. I bought it because I loved the cherry red it came in and it was reasonably priced with 5 doors.I had just had my second child and was fed up of my 3 door car. The car looked absolutely beautiful,sporty.I thought ,hhmm I l look good behind that,lol. Bad points ***************************** Should have left it where it was.It drank petrol so fast I was scared to go anywhere I wasnt desperate to go. Interior was as cheap and plasticy as you can get. It did not stick to the road as well as it should after speeds of 40 mph. It was too small once ... Read the complete review

Having got this as a company car, I felt let down because it's so small, and looks without character. The body was silver, yet I thought, should I be driving a car like this? I took it out for a run around town while I had to pick up a few things, and I was pleasantly surprised! With the CD Player going on around you, and the nice comfy chairs, I was able to rev up the engine and I felt like I was driving something else; something bigger. It took corners like a dream and yet it was so quiet without the air conditioning or the CD Player on, it sounded really cool. I've had it for about a week now, and having driven about 600 miles in it, I am ... Read the complete review
