Absolutely disgraceful MG Customer Service

I purchased a MG HS Essence demonstaror from Central Coast MG with approx. 2,200klm.
After about 300klms of driving a Engine Malfunction msg was displayed on the console.
I took the vehicle to MG at West Gosford and it was diagnosed as a faulty Oxygen Sensor. They didnt have any available and said it may take 2 weeks.
I called them 2 weeks later and now they tell me it will be 4 to 6 weeks!
The dealership service department is now telling ME to contact MG Australia if I want to escalate my issue. This is disgraceful customer service. I have a near 'new' vehicle that I am not willing to drive with this type of fault. No loan vehicles were available.
As such, I do not recommend MG. Show details

Save Your Money and Buy Something Else

Save your time, money, and stress, and don't buy this car. Yes, the interior and technology are nice, but the power, acceleration, and gear shifting is crap. I have owned my MG HS Excite since January and I have had nothing but problems with it. On day 2.5 it left my work on a tow truck because it went into limp mode and wouldn't go past 25km/hr and they weren't able to find the issue. It has also been in 1 other time and is booked in next week because I continue to have issues with its horrible driveability and technology. Show details

Not worth it. Even at the cheap price

I have been given one as a hire car
This a shocker of a car to drive and misses on all metrics.
If you thinking of buying one ask the dealer to loan you one to test drive for a week, otherwise could be regrettable purchase.
Spend the extra and buy something better. Show details

Good car so far but having very basic Issues which pre delivery inspection could have fixed

I have Bought two MG HS Vibes from Wodonga Car World. Good Service by Anthony Forti and the Team however both the cars have Wobbly Rear View Mirror, Wobbly Shifter Knobs and Rear View Camera Partly Blocked by Rego which should have been fixed at pre-delivery inspection. Nothern MG fixed the Rear View Mirror issue but not the other Two apparently other two issues are inherent to the model. It is still a month that I bought the cars rest looks ok and will post any further issues. Show details

Very nice car indeed

We had this car now for close to 2 years.
We had the usual quality reservation regarding Chinese made products, but given the excellent value and overall look and feel we got decided to risk it.
We had no issues to date, knock on wood, and the quality look and feel are Mercedes class I would argue. So if you wondering about MG, we are very happy and would do it again

Thoughts on this car in the long term? Can assume it is likely to lose major resale value compared to more established hybrid brands/models, especially after the 7 year warranty is up?

The headline of this story says 60KM of EV range. Is that a typo or is that it?
One trip to the shops & back via electric propulsion, for a $50K investment.
