Faults:

Rear drum brakes failed six-monthly car fitness test ("W.O.F.") but cost only NZ$90 to fix.

Blown one fuse and one brake light in 14 months.

General Comments:

Be very careful when buying an MGB-GT - they are often thrashed. Read some of the excellent books available and know your stuff before you buy! Buy via a dealer if possible - gives you some legal recourse if you discover the car is a heap.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
