2002 MG TF 135 Sprint 1.8i from UK and Ireland
Excellent all round sports car
Minor problem with a flickering high-level stop light when new, but this was quickly rectified by the dealer.
After about 5,000 miles the clutch needed greasing. Took the dealer about 15 minutes to put right.
The layout of the car with a mid-engine and rear wheel drive provides an enjoyable and much more involving feel to the drive. I look for any excuse to drive somewhere!
The car corners extremely well with no body roll whatsoever and behaves very well under all conditions.
I am tall, 6'2", and although I have never found the car uncomfortable I would welcome just a fraction more leg room.
The cabin could do with a little modernisation, although we are talking about a car that you should enjoy driving so the shape of the switches and feel of the dash is not so important.
From the outside the car looks 'sharp' and in my opinion there are very few roadsters about which have quite the same line.
It's good to know that you can still buy a good British car!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
