I bought my MG just after Rover's demise so was able to get quite a good deal on a pr registered vehicle with only 12 miles on the clock.
Equipment levels are good with climate conrol, CD multi changer, half leather etc all in, though I feel there are some question marks over fit and finish in the interior. My car suffers from a few intermittent rattles and squeaks from the rear view mirror and dash board although most of the materials used are of pretty good quality.
The engine I believe is a BMW sourced 2 litre unit which is quite refined but a little breathless higher up the rev range, this could be due to the fact that it has been de-tuned for the MG / Rover cars. Fuel economy is good at around 42 mpg given that the car is quite heavy.
From the drivers seat the ride is firm to very firm but not harsh, roadholding is excellent. There is room for 4 adults and luggage while the engine remains quiet when cruising. There is a little wind noise.
I have had only a couple of issues with my car, the climate control needed re gassing twice and the boot's auto release causes problems in icy conditions, there is no key lock to be able to manually open and close it!
Overall its a well made car which looks classy and feels as though it could last for years, just look out for quality gremlins.
Had this car for three year,s it has never let me down, shaked, rattled,moned,groned,or anything.I AM KEEPING THIS CAR FOR THE REST OF MY DAY,S.A proper future classic.
I owned an MG ZT 190 for two absolutely trouble-free years and enjoyed every minute I spent behind the wheel, which is more than I can say for the reliability of several high performance Audis and SAABs I have owned.
It's a great and rewarding drive on B-roads, a relaxing motorway cruiser and both handling and road-holding are top drawer. I've never had a car that is seemingly so well screwed together with no squeaks or rattles. -
There is always a downside. Residuals are not the best, so when it came to buying a new car what else could I do? I bought a new MG ZT 260 SE and apart from the fact that there's nowhere to park my size 10s next to the clutch pedal, it's an absolute hoot.
It's about time your readers and reviewers looked beyond the brand and listened to what the owners have to say.
I have owned one for 2 1/2 years and still love it. Fantastic handling, brakes and performance.
It has very good build quality, with the exception of the plastic sill protectors which keep coming off.
It's a little heavy on petrol, but that's down more to my driving than the car: I just can't resist making use of the power and hearing the sound of that V6.
I would definitely buy another, the V8 is very tempting.

I've had 6 VWs now including this one and it is a mixed bag. In no particular order the economy is poor despite the FSI badging and in town never…
Why is there so much whining about the rear sets? It's small - it's called a "mini" (hint). It didn't get any smaller after you bought it, so deal…
