I don't like it. I want a small car. Suzuki Wagon or similar.
£350 or roffle at 6 quid each.
159,000 miles. Just under a year's MOT
Leather Interior (Actually that's a 'bad' to some people)
Complicated starting method - 2 keys and an immobilizer
Likes a drink - TADTS (Plus it is Scottish)
Smells oily sometimes - TADTS
Tappy noise occasionally. Have been told Vanos - but hasn't affected anything. Might actually just be a loose engine cover.
Gearbox hangs in a low gear for first 30 seconds or so of driving after cold start. Fine after that.
Bodywork has scratches and rust (rear arches)
I don't actually have many pictures...
Proper funny-face Multipla
My wife's car for last 8 years
ELX spec, so has the twin sunroofs
8v turbo diesel that plods on and on. And on and on. Did the 20 mile commute today, outside lane of M1 for a lot of it.
Dependable to go anywhere. More reliable that was ever in the blueprint !
180k and everything still works including the folding mirrors, air con, both sunroofs, all windows, etc
Some war wounds well what do you expect, some interior sticky plastics but nothing broken
Some front clonking to deal with - they do eat drop links. Just turn up the stereo
Now has a Cat-C marker because of this. Grrr. The upshot is the insurer valued it at £1k. Stitched together with cable ties for now.
MOT all the way to October
Thinking roffling at Tenner a ticket - it really is that reliable and I don't want it gone but wife is in ear about it. Taxed and insured until end of the month, see
We moved white goods with it last week and a whole fixed panels front end from a classic Mini (Riley Elf ectually) the week before. So VAN status is achievable as the seats just lift out
Things are a changing folks, the Rover of Smoothness has to go and I think a Rover Roffle is the way for this to happen.
You can see piccies of the car elsewhere on the forum but will try and post some as soon as I can over the weekend.
This is really a lovely car that has had some serious money spent on her over the last few years.
I have had a new rear section of exhaust fitted, a new brake caliper fitted to the N/S rear and it has had the CVT fluid drained and changed by the Rover specialist in St. Albans just a few months ago. I had a new battery fitted when I bought her as well. She is a lovely smooth driving car, utterly comfortable too and she motors along beautifully. Quibbles? The heated seats don't work but seeing as the seats are velour fabric, that really isn't an issue. A few giffer scuffs on the bumpers are present and there is a slight ding in the drivers front wing but I have a good wing that will come with the car. The boot lid will sometimes come down unannounced but I was going to add a spring to the mechanism and see if it helped. That's it really. Mileage is around 58,000 or so. MOT till November I think. The old reg will come with the car and the current reg will be retained by me. No OMG HGF/coolant loss/overheating issues whatsoever.
She is insured under a classic insurance banner by PBIS. This is a lovely, lovely car.
Roffle interest at £8 per number? Taxed to get you home.
If anyone wants to cross my palm with pound notes then £425 will see the car bought for cash tonite mate, no X boxes, sorry.
