Cons

Poor Build quality from Rover

1999 Rover 400 — Perfomance: Not Great, slipping clutch meant you couldn't put any power down. Brakes were running metal to metal so it didn't stop well, handled Ok. Build Quality: Not Great, its a Rover. Appearence: Good, really nice condition Cost of Ownership: Good on fuel Fun Factor: Quite dangerous, so was a lot of fun to drive

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Nowadays this car is cheaper than a bicycle!... and it's more comfortable.

Cons

After some mileage, the engine is not reliable... that's about 500€ now and then :(

If You Need A Very Cheap Family Car That Looks Good And You Don't Drive Much... This Is Your Car!!! — Well... It's a good car till 180.000 km... then you better check your engine's cooling system very ofter. If not, it will go off :( Beside this scary thing, it's a very good car in many aspects. Yet, I prefer the earlier model (200-400 series). Good comfort ride although too soft seats, very good build quality, and thing works good as a japanese car... of course! The engine has enough power, yet the Rover's 103hp are weaker and need to eat more than in other similar cars.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros

Fast, good acceleration, good brakes, handles well and lots of room for people and big boot size, whether hatchback or saloon

Cons

Head Gaskets going all the time, common for rovers and not well made

Good Sixe Family Car, Big, Speedy For A First Car, 1.6 And Doesnt Look Like A First Car...lol — Ive had this car nearly about 6-7 months now and one problem after the other even though been looked after very well. It is a lovely car to drive and looks nice but like a lot of rovers not massively reliable and spend lots of money on it all the time fixing something....still a good first car to have for me and good driving a big car.
