1997 Rover 600 Review

Cheap, Reliable Motoring — great car for the money, got this one for £1200 with 51k miles on it, admittidly it was abit squeeky round the corners at first, but i poped the standard wheels off and put some 17's 205's on it for another £500 and now it sticks to the road like glue, engine sounded abit rubbish until I put a k&n air filter on there and now it roars once you get it past 5000rpm, has a 2250cc honda engine which is clean as a whistle, does between 25-35 miles to the gallon depending on how right foot heavy you are and goes off the clock (140mph) effortlessly. acceleration good considering the size of the thing, Has full leather seats, cruise control, electric everything (all still working after 11years) air con, absolutly no rust and has been completely maintance free since Ive had it (other than oil change, filter and wheels) If every Rover was like this they'd still be making cars today!!

Pros: Value for money, Performance, Reliabilty, Comfort,

Cons: Standard Wheels and the Air Filter need replacing, the badge
