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

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

Fantastic for the price no problems

I've had this car for 1.5 years with no issues to date. 7 year warranty and roadside assist is perfect. It is on the smaller size between a Mazda cx3 and cx5. Has suited my 2a 2c fine. It is cheap on fuel and I love the reverse camera. No issues and for the price even better. Show details

Scary

I've had an MG ZS Excite from the rental car company for 2 days. It refuses to accelerate after stopping, but then suddenly lurches, the braking is incredibly non responsive, so peak hour traffic is more scary than it should be. It randomly revs when driving, the aircon blows warm, then cold, then warm, then cold, but never stays cold. Today it refused to go into reverse gear part way through a 7 point turn to get out of a tight car park, such that I was blocking all traffic (what fun!). After restarting it reversed when the gear shift said it was in drive, and reluctantly went forward when in low. Then it was all ok again. I have no faith in the car to get me from A to B, it is stressful.

One of the worst care I ever driven

This China made car is absolutely terrible everting about it is just poor quality, drives very strangers braking feels like is not braking properly, there is no acceleration what’s so ever, when you put your foot down to the ground is nothing happening. I absolutely hate everything about this car the sounds it makes the look the way is build. 2023 model is build worst then any German car from 2010 Show details

Well, we were going fine until we were stuck for 6 hours and didnt know why the car wouldnt charge—-it is supplied with a slow charger and you have to pay extra for a fast charger. And the salesman didnt tell us……..
