I had a 53 ZT 1.8 turbo purchased new I loved it because it was great at hugging the bends when driving at speed that's when I was able to use a clutch and change gears hubby bought me for my 40th but it had a problem from the beginning oil leaked from the top end of the sill I think or top end of the engine, The dealers could never tighten up the bolts enough it still done it for the three years I had it ( the engine went just a month after it was three K series engine )Dilligaf said:There were 2 models of the 400 series and mine was the one they rebadged as the 45 and was a 2litre diesel.Dan said:Dilligaf said:Believe it or not Rover 400 1997. I bought it six months old and kept it for nine years. Cost me £900 for its 8th year service as it needed timing belts changing, a new battery and a suspension coil replacement. Every other service no problem. Very comfortable car to drive and part exchanged it with over 90, 000 on the clock.
I was just about to put Rover 400 down as the worst car I have ever owned! Unbelievable the amount of problems I had with it.
It just proves how different the same model can be
But the best car was the Ford Explorer we had that car for 13 years best 4x4
