2003 MG ZT-T 120 1.8L NA from UK and Ireland
Huge fun but undervalued family sports estate
Head gasket failure at 45,000.
Front O/S wheel bearing at 56,000.
Rear trailing link bushes at 58,000.
Liner register seal failure at 76,000.
Strong, solid car which can boast one of the highest lateral g-forces of many "family estates". The handling is amazing - have great fun on local clover-leafs eating up overpriced German rivals.
Superb fun to drive and swallows up luggage.
Useful, strong roof-rails, properly secured to body.
BMW-inspired lifting glass on hatch is very useful.
A physically big car with a small engine - regret not having a turbo, so only 33 to a gallon at best. Does prefer Total fuels.
Quality supportive seats and trim which is easy to clean;
Well-considered load space with quality "D"-rings and good stowage space - well-engineered combined dog-guard and load-space cover.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
