Is the sunroof fit for purpose?

Had the car 4 years, for the most part I am happy with the car, I’ve had few issues mechanically, I think it’s economical to drive and it works as an A-B kind of car… however recently we had heavy rain, and it filled my car……. Turns out my sunroof has been damaged and the car is no longer waterproof! It’s hard to tell if the rubber has just self destructed/deteriorated or if something has come and eaten or pecked at the rubber.

Ofcourse the dealership has decided it was birds and have declined to fix it under warranty.

But I don’t 100% believe it was birds, the rubber looks like it could have just deteriorated.. would love to hear if anyone has experienced a similar issue Show details

Smooth ride

I’ve had my MG essence for 3 years and it is the smoothest ride. Handles the freeway really well, quiet road noise, don’t feel bumps and speedy. The only downfall is the seats. Argh looks similar to leather but it’s fake. The sweatiest seats ever. I had to buy seat covers for the summer months. It is such a shame that a major component can be a downfall. If you can live with seat covers I recommend purchasing an mg essence. Show details

Absolutely Rubbish

I rented a 2021 MG ZS while in Tasmania (I was supposed to get a Stonic…) absolutely horrible car to drive in any situation. Open highways, terrible, Twisty mountain roads, Twice as terrible, around town, THRICE as terrible. I cannot even imagine how people spend money on AND own these things. Show details

Perfect value for money

I have a 2021 MG ZS small compact SUV. I use my car daily for private use. I have a small family and it’s perfect size for what I need. I have had no problems with my car or with the dealership. It has everything that you need for a small price compared to other brands.

I do wish they had a back interior light and air con vents in the back however the air con is extremely ice cold so it reaches the back. Show details

I bought this car, regretted so much

It is fine for the first 5000km I drove.

Then it starts having alignment issue.

Within the next week, the EPB system fault.

Only had it for for 2 month.

What is worst is, calling for road side assistance from MG is so bad.

I waited 4 hours, for them to even try to get some one over here. As I typed there is still no one here.

I have a Mazda that I drove 100k ++ with no issue like this.

Regret this thing Show details

The most annoying car on the market

How to make a brand new car the most annoying experience ever. Everything beeps, constantly, and they won't even turn off. Even the back windscreen wiper makes an extremely annoying noise. As a passenger, I feel every tiny bump in the road. You can't adjust the height of the seat belts and they dig into my neck and the seats aren't very comfortable. The issues with this car that my husband bought is causing many fights in our marriage. Thanks for nothing! Show details

Ok for the price

I've had this car for 2 months now, it's definitely a downgrade from my Hilux.
Great run around car easy to drive, worst part is the acceleration, it's terrible but I'm sure we'll get used to it. Show details

Hi. I’ve got a 2023 mg zs excite automatic purchased in June of this year only 3500km on the clock . I’ve read a few complaints in regards to acceleration and stalling issues with the vehicle which I’ve had back to the service department 3 times where purchased with the same issue. Also a second issue with the steering column clunking whilst driving which now needs to be replaced also. Has anyone else had similar issues and how have you dealt with mg complaints. Thanks

Has anyone experienced stereo issues, hazard lights going off when hitting a bump or pot hole in the road or had trouble with their locking system and starting their engine ?? Also has anyone experienced or known of an MG or other model/brand of car being affected due to a certain area/suburb as in the frequency/towers/signal ???
