I paid £7200 for 03 ZT with 70,000 miles which i px with my 03 Audi A4 (moment of madness). Wanted ZT for while as like the look - sacrificed german quality for british lazyness in my eyes. It's the worst car ever owned. Poor quality interior constantly super-glueing. I've had the car 6 months and had full set of new injecters (£900)had new fuel pump(£300) and wheel bearings all round (£480).Only half decent thing is the ride with 18''wheels still pretty smooth. Will think twice in future before sacrificing reliabilty for looks, avoid at all costs.
Having bought this car last year for £7000 I was looking forward to a sporty, well built and reliable car.. I was disappointed, firstly for a car with 190bhp and a close ration box it felt unresponsive,absolutely no torque low down and a nice but not exciting surge of power in the upper rev range. Trim and fittings were not only weak and unimpressive but broke due to poor quality materials (the rear seat release handles, and seat adjustment levers being good examples). Its obvious that MG Rover were in trouble and were cutting costs at this time. Economy is terrible, we have struggled to get any more than 20mpg even on a run from the car (even my hobby car which is a 89 Pontiac Firebird with a tired 5.7litre V8 does 26-30 mpg!) Due to the size of the wheels (18") the steering feels jittery over bumps and the wheel can pull through your hands when your going round corners at times which doesnt fit with the luxury grand tourer style of this car. Overall and disappointing although not too bad car for the money
We had a 2004 ZT with the 2.0 CDT 135 diesel engine as a company car, and put around 50k miles on it. In many ways it's a great car, it drives nicely and has a nice balance between roadholding and ride comfort, the seats are comfortable, there's plenty of kit, the performance is acceptable, and we were getting around 45 mpg out of it. Overall, a quite acceptable car - when it works.
However, the thing died at the side of the road 4 times in our ownership with various unexplained faults that the main dealer could't seem to get to the bottom of. So as you might expect we were quick to get rid of it.
MG ZT 160 Good alround fun car to drive, Had mine 1year has gave me no troble
Order a brochure, find your nearest dealer or book a test drive
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…
