2002 MG TF 160 1.8 VVC from UK and Ireland
Very Very Poor Build Quality
Hole in roof (replaced)
Gear box problems.
Bonnet badge replaced.
Window seals replaced (carpet and speakers kept getting wet)
Door straps replaced (Doors would not stay open and would shut on your shins)
Foam in passenger's seat replaced.
Drivers side window dropped off its rail.
Scratch on windscreen due to wiper blade coming out of its tooth.
Head gasket blown.
Misfiring and causing sensor problems.
My first impressions of the car were great. It looked great, sounded great and drove like you would expect a 160BH car to perform.
The price of the car was good when compared to all its competitors in the same performance group. What was the catch I asked myself?? Well I found out within 2 days when the first of a number of horrific faults started to prevail as listed above.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
