What used MG ZS hatchback will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a MG ZS hatchback?

Back in 2003, a new MG ZS180 cost more than the equivalent five-door Volkswagen Golf GTI, but it's the Golf that's worth more now. Still, that means you can get a quick, sharp-handling car for not much money if you can find a well-cared-for ZS.

The MG can run to 15,000 miles before it needs a service, though, whereas the GTI needs attention one a year or every 10,000 miles. An independent MG expert will charge less per hour than his VW counterpart, but, on average, major repair work on the MG will prove more costly.
