2002 MG ZR + 1.4 from UK and Ireland
Sheep in wolves clothing
Side skirts coming loose.
Windscreen and window prone to steaming up even with the blowers on.
Tailgate spoiler too easy to steal and expensive to replace:- 550 pounds.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

"Windscreen and window prone to steaming up even with the blowers on" - this can easily be rectified by sliding the dials so it's not on recirculate. A friend of mine had that problem, and even the garage never picked up on this. Soon after sliding the dial to direct air from the outside, the problem was solved.
As for the "Tailgate spoiler too easy to steal and expensive to replace:- 550 pounds", I have to agree they are expensive to buy, but not easy to steal. You can't undo it without having the boot open, so you'd have to rip it off the car, and this is likely to damage it. It's no easier to steal than bumpers, or wing mirrors off any other car...

I have an MG ZR 03. The head gasket always goes on them. I hate it, and I'm going to get shot of it.

Get the diesel version if you want better reliability, the head gaskets are prone on the K series (petrol) but not the L series (diesel), have a bit more poke and better economy to boot.
