Driver Seat Belt worn (in the last 5,000 miles)
L/side rear passenger seat belt broken (since 12,000 miles)
Bolt fallen off from gear level underneath car (after less than a month (1500 miles) )
Needs air filter (can't find a match in the last 4000 miles)
Heat shields fell off exhaust (less than 1000 miles)
Both rear wheel bearings gone (30,000 miles, now replaced)
Front tyres need replacing every 12000 miles.
Brakes needed lathing as replacement couldn't be found (30,000 miles, 5 types were sent, all wrong)
Windscreen wipers make noise most of the time unless screen is very wet (tried cleaning them) (since 6000 miles)
Clutch release bearing gone after 3000 miles, still not replaced, but working.
Thermostat gone in the last 5000 miles (stuck open)
Reversed into a lamppost and slightly damaged rear light. just a crack and it costs 90 quid to replace it! (5 days into me owning the car)
Car is limited top speed at 100mph as are the revs limited to about 6500 rpm.
Car sticks to the road usually. make sure tyre pressures are correct. car will slide otherwise when on a very wet surface.
Interior rattles a lot after only a few hundred miles.
A good sound system (Sony CD player), not much to say about the speakers though.
Tiny boot, you'll be lucky to get 2 suitcases in there, small ones at that.
E/ windows all round :) with optional lock for the rear windows.
2 front airbags, which gladly I haven't tested.
Parts are... how do you put hard to find and really expensive in simple terms.
If I had had the option for leather seats after experiencing them now I would definitely have them. the seats are a little uncomfortable.
Good news (on the wikipedia) apparently there's a mark 2 car about and... talk of an MG version (yay we are saved for parts).
I get about 36 mpg which is about 5 mpg less that others in its class.
Bad point: 6000 mile service interval, if you don't do many miles then this is fine.
If anyone can help with where to get parts please comment. I hope my review is useful for anyone who wishes to purchase one of these. Good car for young drivers, may be expensive for parts, simple engine so can be taken to pretty much anyone for servicing.
