2003 MG ZR + 2.0 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Sporty looks with built in economy
Glove box opens on it's own accord when going over speed humps.
Brake pedal intermittently clicks when applied.
Have done over 4,000 miles miles in this car in under 3 months and have had no major problems or concerns whatsoever. Don't get me wrong, you aren't going to beat everything out of the lights from a standing start, but wait till the turbo kicks in at 3rd, 4th and 5th gear. After driving a Peugeot 206 2.0 Turbo Diesel, this car is like a breath of fresh air.
Yes, I have got to admit that I have got a much reported annoying rattle, but this, at the minute, is very intermittent and not worth complaining about.
I have not bought this car for looks, even though it does look sexy, especially sat on 17 inch straights, or for boy racer status (at 32!!!), but have purchased something which looks respectable and fairly sporty and doesn't hit me in the pocket with the fuel consumption (around 45-50 mpg).
In conclusion, if your requirements are sporty looking and economy, the MG ZR+ TD is well worth a look.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
