ngmusic's review of Rover 414i 16V

★★★☆☆

“If the Rover 414i 16V family car is pre 1997 then you...”

Bad Points
Numerous problems occur with the 414i 1997 and before

General Comments
If the Rover 414i 16V family car is pre 1997 then you can expect problems with the head gasket they are prone for failing and repair bills are expensive the head usually warps when the gasket fails (the heads alone cost over £1000).

The gearboxes on the pre 1997 models are also prone to exessive wear and can become noisy.

So be warned putting your foot down in this car can cost you a lot more than a speeding ticket.

i agree on the head gasket and gearbox issues but they also suffered from sticking valves but apart from this value for money wise they are as cheap as chips!
