Good Reliable Quck Car But Dont Expect It To Stay In One Peice — Fast for 1.6, handling ok at times, brakes could be better. Bits fall off most days, not broken down yet but fairly rusty. Looks nice but heavy on fuel but quite good fun to drive. Cheap to buy considering what it is

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

Pros: The engine

Cons: Rust

1996 Rover 216sli Auto — I have only just purchased this car,So I cannot say very much about it. However having driven it on the 27/07/2008 I have gottonn on very well with it. It has an automatic transmission which works like a charm. It also has the full electric pack ( electric windows, sunroof etc) so i am looking forward to travelling many miles with it. I will add some pics of it once I have actually taken some.

Pros: A fantastic Automatic transmission, puls the full electric pack.

Cons: I have only just purchased it so I don't know of any negatives as of yet.

Good Handling And Looks — Had major reliability issues with the engine, not very well built, but drove well both performance and handling wise. Not bad running costs

Pros: handling performance, running costs

Cons: build quality and reliability
