Rover 620 sli auto
Well after nearly 5 years of owing my 620 2.0.auto, i think its time to send off to rest at scrap yard, Must say was a great buy, never failed to start, never failed an mot, since ive had it, tell a lie a rear break light bulb was out on one, with just 99,000 miles it still runs great, at last MOT he was impressed how solid car was underneath
so what has it cost me in 5 years, 2 new rear calipers to fix handbrake issues, rear discs, 2 new front wishbone and track rod ends, new rad recently plus i serviced it every year before MOT, so plugs filters oil, pads,exhaust parts and tyers and 3 electric Ariel inserts LOL blood car wash. Air conditioning has never work and never bothered to find out why. and i fitted a new battery a few years back, just as a precaution as i start work at 3 am every morning
was a fantastic buy at time with just 75000 miles at £400 5 years ago, im sure would go on for many more miles, But got to stage where had to make a decision, car tax was due, needed 2 tyres, front new exhaust flex pipe needed fitting been in boot for months, fan belt started to squeal a few weeks back and im such a pig when it comes to cars, very rearly wash cant member last time it was hovered, has usal minor rust to rear wheel arches above bumper, picked up a few dents, thought it was simpler to buy new car than clean.
So scrap man will give me £100 as well , its served me well, best bit was all those people that said Rovers are crap, My Honda rover served me faultlessly.
