Want to know everything there is to know about this car?
Good deals available from MG Rover - comparable quality, performance and equipment to a BMW 325 for much, much less
I average 32 mpg - pretty good for a 2.5 litre V6 in a car this size. Cam belt change not scheduled until 90,000 & 15k service intervals help reduce long term maintenance costs
On the road
Excellent handling and cornering - direct steering, powerful brakes, 'cultured' V6 engine note - very enjoyable and confidence inspiring
Performance improves significantly after a few thousand miles - similar to an E39 525
Living with it
No problems so far - seems to have a good record in surveys (1st What Car? & 13th Top Gear)
Very subjective but I really like the identity of the car - sporting, well built & independent choice
Late 2003 cars onwards equipped with slightly less harsh suspension - good compromise, very comfortable & well equipped
Security and Service
Solidly built, performed well in security tests, specify optional £200 extra airbags for equivilant of 5 star NCAP safety
