Why buy a used Rover Maestro with Exchange and Mart?

Born in a time of extreme industrial turbulence, the Rover (nee Austin) Maestro never recovered from a bad start. Initially slated for a 1979 launch, British Leyland's co-operation with Honda resulted in the 1981 launch of the Triumph Acclaim, the Maestro being held over until 1983 when Austin Rover had risen from the ashes of BL. What interest can there be for the used car buyer in a design that was already four years out of date when it was launched and which has now metamorphosed into a national totem of the near-death of the British motoring industry? Yes, you do get a lot of metal for your money but only when measured in area rather than volume. Nonetheless, it represents honest motoring for the unpretentious and 'post-modern irony' for urban trendies. How can you possibly refuse?

About the Rover Maestro

For home DIY enthusiasts, cheap speed demons and those who've spent the last 15 years incarcerated at Her Majesty's Pleasure, the Maestro represents a very attractive proposition. For the rest of us, it'll probably remain a curiosity, a car that represented the metamorphosis of Rover from a national embarrassment to something deemed worthy of BMW's sympathy. If nothing else, it throws into sharp relief how far modern cars have come, and acts as a convenient conversation-killer should anyone hark back to the good old days of the eighties. Nonetheless, the Maestro's time may yet come, and despite the cheap laughs perpetrated at its expense, late models are nowhere near as bad as you may expect. Which, admittedly, is probably not saying a great deal, but is as close to an endorsement as any reasonable person could probably manage.

Representative finance example

If your borrow amount is £7,000 with a deposit of £1,000, a selected term of 48 months, at a representative APR of 14.9% (fixed) and an annual fixed rate of interest of 14.9%, you would pay £163.87 per month. Total charge for credit will be £1,865.76 and total amount repayable is £7,865.76
