I'd say any car that is reliable is a 'good' car.
The rest is down to personal preference.

Well, I don't know about the Rover, but my old car started adjusting
its seat, the moment you pushed the unlock button on the remote. Each
different remote had seat settings associated with it and it would be
in its assigned position before you could even open the door. Even
doing it via the internal seat memory button it would take no longer
than around half a second to move all of its six actuators to the
Making all of those adjustments manually could take me around 30
seconds, with no guarantee I would be back to my 'comfy' position.
I actually have it set with two comfy positions, so that on a long
drive I can just press one or the other memory button, to change the
position slightly for a bit of a change.
