MG Rover's troubles are intensifying and the next few months will be critical to the British carmaker's future, Automotive News Europe reported. Western European sales of MG Rover cars dropped 13.6% the first two months of this year — after falling 10.4% in 2002 to 143,745 units. Officials admit MG Rover will lose money again this year but they argue the company should be profitable once replacements for its aging model lineup arrive.
