Goodbye Rover!

Home  \  European Imports  \  Goodbye Rover!

Well, Rover is no more (Apparently). It all happened a little quickly for most people to mo what was happening really, but I spose this is just another Brit manufacturer to go bust. I've never liked Rover personally, I think they're unreliable, cheap and tacky, that's not to say I dont feel for the MG Rover staff who lost their jobs at the Longbridge plant though :ohcrap:

mg rover isnt dead yet. the mg tf (very cool car) is going to continue being made and it may go to the usa. by the way i have a rover 25 and it certainly isnt crap. its a class car and the rover 75 was one of the best cars ever made of the late 90's

It's dead! No factory-no cars!!

Even Priory Rover showroom near me is clearing up.

yes but there are still thousands of cars to be sold and rovers are to be made in china and the mg brand is being bought. it may be the end of longbridge but not rover or mg.

Errrr, that's why they went bust. China pulled out last minute of buying Rover/MG.

It's over!! There's no workmen left at Rover/MG

Wahooooo... a response lol, I have had experience with crap Rovers (the majority), Head Gaskets blow all too often and the best move they ever made (there weren't meny btw!) was the use of Honda Engines in old 216's etc :thumbs:

Btw, I beg to differ about the MG-TF being a cool car! :ohcrap: ...

Have they done away with the hydrogas suspention yet? :laughing:
