2002 MG ZT-T + 2.5 V6 (160) from UK and Ireland
Top quality, you will enjoy it if you give it a try
I upgraded from an MG ZR to the ZT-T due to a third child, and must admit it is a fantastic car.
Looks superb, and is very quiet and comfortable on motorway.
Handling is good for such a large car, but you do feel some of the bumps due to the sporty suspension.
I am quite happy with a return of between 30 - 35 mpg (motorway), considering it's a V6, but it could do with a bit more power. It will cruise along quite nicely along the motorway, but when you want a bit more speed to overtake, it takes a short while to give you the speed, or at least that's how it feels as it is very easy to forget how fast you are traveling, due to the smoothness and lack of any wind noise, even at 70mph.
Since I bought my ZT-T, I have installed the trip computer and had to visit the dealer to get it programmed to the car. Dealer was very helpful, but this has been my only dealing with them.
I have also fitted rear parking sensors; due to the length of the car, these have been very handy.
Parts are mostly available except for some bits of trim, but servicing parts are available.
I would also recommend joining the 75 & ZT owners forum, as you will find out loads of information on this great car.
Bad things about the car.
The A & B pillars are large and easily hide other cars, people etc.
It does not always fit length ways in car park spaces, however this can be a good thing, because you can see your car poking out from a distance.
It is a big car, and some repairs will be expensive, however that's the price you pay for a luxury car and it is luxury. However you will also pay these bills for a BMW, Merc, Jag, and the ZT-T is in the same class, it just never got the praise it deserves.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
