Great fun, but don't expect a hassle-free experience
The alarm was sounding on windy days until fixed.
There is a recurring clutch judder fault which my MG garage has been unable to rectify.
Carpets keep debonding from the floor.
Both driver's and passenger's door leak under heavy rain.
Heater control does not regulate properly.
Squeak from rear suspension.
The car has a great engine which performs well and sounds great.
It handles very sharply, though not as sharply as the 2002 Mode Year, but has a better ride quality than prior TFs.
It's also fairly economical, cheap to service and relatively practical.
It is poorly built and, although nothing catastrophic has occurred yet, I'm sure there will be reliability issues in due course.
However, it is great fun, beautiful and one of the best all-round affordable roadsters on the market.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
