1997 MG F 1.8VVC 1.8VVC from UK and Ireland
A great, cheap, classic British sports car with a great heritage
Handbrake warning light flickered on and off.
Heater temperature control knob broke.
Started to idle at 1300rpm.
Reggie, as my red MG was christened, was great fun in the three years I owned it. He was quick, reliable and fantastic to drive around the Yorkshire Dales, the Devon hills and the Cheshire countryside.
He was also exciting to take around the circuit in Anglesey, as featured on TV's 'Fifth Gear' programme.
Only a few niggling little faults came to light, which I am sure will be easily fettled by the dealer before he goes to a good home.
Reggie has now been replaced with Reggie the Second - a Solar Red MG TF160 Sprint, which is even better...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
