My rover 75 is a 2002 on a 02 plate. This is my first rover 75 and cost me £1300 a year ago. I really love this car,a lot of luxury for little money. When you think BMW had a lot to do with it's production. The only thing i would complain about is the amount of problems i have had with it ie 1. Air bag fault. this was the air bag ECU replaced now OK. 2. Front suspension spring snapped while parked up.Lucky was not driving it at the time!!! 3. Car at this moment in garage for head gasket. This… Read Full Review

Have done 50k miles in this car and now at 155k miles still drives superbly and copes with terrible island roads and a huge amount of abuse. Only problem water in the plenum, which the owners club forum resolved quickly- must make sure this is kept clear of water as will affect ecu. My only gripe- and I seem to be the only one with this problem- leather seats are too squashy and incredibly uncomfortable for long drives. trim over door threshold falls off too but its no big deal. Will buy… Read Full Review

We bought our rover 75,7 years ago, the beautiful sleek silver dream machine. No problem driving for 5 or 6 months until fuel pump went which is located under the rear passenger seat which was hard to get at and expensive to replace. Followed by 2 years later head gasket problem and then again 2 years later by head gasket again. She still looks a beautiful car parked outside the front of our house but is not worth getting fixed again. Paul, Republic of Ireland … Read Full Review

What can i say, i have been looking for a 75 for ages.But i always liked the look of the ZT. Finally i found a connoisseur with a ZT bumper/grill/spoiler/wheels.ALL the luxury of a connoisseur,with the sporty look of the ZT.What a fantastic car.I bought it with full service history,all the old mot's and bills.Had the dreaded headgasket done last year at a cost of £600 plus pounds with all the odds and sods thrown in.I LOVE IT, i have had jags that did not drive as nicely.Only down side is that… Read Full Review

I like my Rover 75 diesel estate its big and very comfortable and you get great miles to gallon nice car. I am having a problem finding out why she dosent start sometimes. The garage said it need new glow-plugs maybe it dose but it still dose it when engine is hot. I think it might be electrical cause when I turn my ignition on if I dont here the pumps I no its not going to start, if I lift the bonnet and give the pumpa a we shake the pumps come on. I know the pumps are working good when I am… Read Full Review

I bought a Club 2.5 75 when they first came out. It was the best car I have ever had. It had a manual gear box and was as smooth as silk. It even had syncro so you could shift into reverse gear while moving forward at low speed! When I sold it (what was I thinking) and bought a new Jag S type the Rover was by far the better car. After searching for about 6 months, I have just bought a 2002 and can't wait to get behind the wheel. Heaps of extras for the money, style, class and will alway… Read Full Review

I've had my Rover 75 since 2007 - a 2litre CDTi.
Its a 2003 model, bought it secondhand for a reasonable price with 55k on the clock.
I know nothing about car maintenance so i've had it regularly serviced at every 6000 miles by a competent garage. Servicing pricing has been nothing above normal and I've had to spend about £500 over the 4 years i've had it on parts (normal wear and tear)
It's now got 123K on the clock, is running absolutley perfectly, does about 50 miles to the gallon on a… Read Full Review

I am surprised to hear about people having a problem with the 75, but it seems as though a lot of the problems are down to a lack of maintenance, yes there plenum drains get blocked, so check them and keep them clear! it's not rocket science, and not just a 75 problem (ask Audi owners)or just cut the pinch bottoms from the rubber pipes and then they don't block. Also the clutch slave cylinder being in the clutch housing is a feature of other cars (Freelander anybody?) and it doesn't have to… Read Full Review

I have the 1.8t 150bhp,which is faster than the 2 litre v6,it has prooven reliable.
only thing i can say if you like these get one,keep an eye on the water and if you suspect a gasket leak put in k-weld,which can be purchased on ebay which should help guard against the dreaded head gasket failure,if you look after it the car it will reward you with many miles of trouble free motoring.
Ive owned many cars and can say these are no worse than others,be choosy when buying low miles,check for white… Read Full Review

Rover 75 02 reg v6 2.5 club
2 days after buying oil light came on, nothing at all on dipstick,
got some more oil and it took 4.5 litres, when started oil was pouring out from the side of the engine it got me the three miles home and had approx 1 litre of oil left it was pouring out like tapwater. Told it was possibly cam oil seal failure. No one wants to touch this car because of its reputation for engine failure and over complex design needing special tools, the only person willing to look… Read Full Review

I own a 2000 model of the Rover 75 Club SE, 2.0 V6 petrol with 5-speed manual box. I bought it cheap 3 years ago and, to be fair, its a good, functional car-certainly a lot of car for the money they sell for. Other the usual maintenance (clutch, brake pads, 2 tyres and, recently, brake pipes and rear exhaust section), it is reliable.
Driving the car, I put in on a par with my old Jaguar XJ6. The suspension is smooth, the engine purrs beautifully on the motorways and the cream coloured dials… Read Full Review

The Rover 75 diesel cdti tourer is a great car and a joy to drive, before i bought this one second hand at 58,000mls it appeared to be a good choice, but in practice there can be big problems and diagnosos itself is a problem, if you read the forums this is apparent. the first problem on my car was the clutch slave cylinder failure; this is located for some daft reason inside the gearbox casing and so it is sensible to replace the clutch at the same time and it is a sealed system so that… Read Full Review

PLEASE READ AS THIS CAN BE USEFUL TO YOU.I HAVE OWNED MY 75 CLUB TOURER FOR ONE YEAR AND COVERED 10,000 MILES. ITS A BRILLIANT CAR AND HANDLES BRILLIANTLY. MINE IS THE 2LTR V6. I WOULD NEVER HAVE CHOSEN THE 1.8 BECAUSE OF THE HEAD GASKET PROBLEMS. SO WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR IS THE TRUTH AND THINGS THAT ARE LIKELY TO GO WRONG AND HOW TO AVOID THEM.
FIRSTLY MAKE SURE THAT YOU CHANGE THE OIL EVERY 5000 MLS. THIS IS THE CARS BLOOD AND WILL ALWAYS GIVE YOU TOP PERFORMANCE (DO NOT USE CHEAP OIL AS ITS… Read Full Review

I fell in love with the car when I first drove it. It already had 115,000 on the clock, but was immaculate. The quality of fit and finish is superb. The engine, a 2.0 V6 is smooth as silk but is perhaps a bit underpowered if the driver wants a more spirited experience. Suspension is first rate for a rather large car. Braking is also excellent. Had a problem with the fuel pump/filter assembly separating--a common problem--but Rimmer Bros sells a set of clips for about a fiver that solves the… Read Full Review

Have had the TDI Diesel Tourer top spec version from new and have now covered almost 130k miles.
Quiet, smooth, very comfortable/well-eqipped and economical. Passengers who own BMWs, Merecedes etc are amazed how good it is. Has delivered consistently good reliability given age and high mileage.
Brilliant value for money.
A pity that people got conned by its rivals and cliche-ridden motoring "journalists"… Read Full Review
