One corroded rear wheel arch, rear brake failure, clutch slipping, rear shock absorber leaking, cassette player broken, sunroof jammed, oil leak, rear wash/wipe failed.

General Comments:

Other than the extensive list of faults, the MG seems to be a very capable car. There's certainly plenty of power. I haven't owned the car long enough to say much more at this stage, but I can't really find many reasons for the Maestro's poor image.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
