Impractical rear seats, quality, problems with LPG and windows

Our long-term Rover has given me the chance to return to my – not only have I messing about in my back but the car did a good impression of my four-year-old son Tonka. That is partly to the enlarged bumpers and raised height giving a tough but also because it’s as well.

While landscaping my garden, was plenty to shift, from slabs to overgrown water and the Streetwise swallowed it all with ease. At the touch of a single the rear seats fold almost flat. And what’s the headrests don’t need to be out to do this.

Plus once done with the mud, the interior is easy to wash

However, it’s not entirely for lugging stuff around the LPG tank on our car is where the spare would normally be. This now has to sit in the and it’s quite heavy to to keep taking out every there’s a big load.

And while my son the back seats comfortable, the isn’t so impressive when it to taking him and his mates out. because it’s only a with the middle of the bench up by a cheap-feeling storage area.

The same thing to the rear off-side electric which tends to stick a few from being closed and a helping hand to get all the way to the top. also noticed that the clicks a lot as it opens – it but I’m wary of using it in case it won’t shut The rest of the car is Tonka tough, with the big bumpers shrugging off knocks that would other superminis with big bills.

I’ll certainly miss it Rover takes my toy away.
