HUsed to have a rover 214si head gasket went pretty quick as green flag told my mum to just carry onto her destination then another mile down the road engine blew & seized. Managed to get a new engine. Had it for another 10+ years after then got corsa when scrapage came in 09 was a r 97 plate rover. All I can remember was puddles where its worst enemy towards the end or rain. Even if it was sat for 5min in the rain it refused to start
I had a rover 45 as my previous car just sold it when i ordered my new corsa.
Only had 45000 mies on it when i sold it but had no end of trouble with it!
Sensors being the big issue with me. could be sat at traffic lights and it would be idling at 2500rpm other times it was fine just got sick of ploughing money into it!
