Written on: 10/04/2011

Done over 70k in a model with 110k on the clock when we bought it. Utterly reliable with only a fix to a hole in a pipe in the a/c required after 4 years use. Still feels good to drive now… Read Full Review

“I bought my Rover 45 TDi Connoissuer on ebay a year...”

Written on: 29/03/2011 by ngoodearl (4 reviews written)

I bought my Rover 45 TDi Connoissuer on ebay a year ago for £1600. The car came with full service history and looked immaculate. I owed a 96 Rover 414si at the time which had just done over 100,000. I was clocking up the mileage with my job and also wanted to avoid a HG failure on the K-series engine. The L-series diesel HG don't have the same design fault as the petrol. It had 144,000 on the clock but being a diesel and with FSH I wasn't worried. Two days later I noticed a loss of coolant. 4… Read Full Review

I scrapped this car when it had done 166k. The diesel injectors had a fault but also had a compression problem which was causing it not to start easily, especially in the cold. If it was just the injectors I probably would have kept it. This car had FSH and I also looked after it. You can just never tell. Got a BMW 320 D SE instead....a real improvement in all departments.

Such a dissapointment… Read Full Review

“Just bought a 2001 Rover 45 TD connoisseur for £995....”

Written on: 07/07/2010

Just bought a 2001 Rover 45 TD connoisseur for £995. Having just filled the tank, its averaged out at 59.1mpg!! It's spacious, practical, very quick mid range acceleration and only costs £125 to tax. The SRS light has come on, which i think is an electrical glitch, but otherwise everything works as it should. Ride and handling are surprisingly tight too. This car cost nothing to buy and despite being 9 years old and having 85,000 miles, it still feels young and nimble. Credit crunch? What… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/12/2007

"So its a Honda civic circa 1996" but there have been so many year on year improvements culminating in the 2004 job, not just the visual ones dash etc. But to the engine, suspension and general all round quality feel. I've had new company cars Volvo Vauxhall both with reliability probs. Not so our 5 door Rover 45 1.6 just look at the Auto trader reliability index… Read Full Review

“I have long been a fan of British cars, and none are...”

Written on: 04/10/2005 by mrjamesriley (2 reviews written)

I have long been a fan of British cars, and none are more mainstream British than Rover. I chose the Rover 45 in full knowledge of poor Rovers troubles, and it did not phase me, because I am buying the car not the company.

I have now had this 2004 facelift 45 over a year and can honestly say that it is the first new car I have had that hasnt suffered any reliability issues. I have had Fords, Skoda's and Fiats and all of them have been back and forth to the dealership within weeks of purchase… Read Full Review
