Why is the steering so heavy at low speeds

Lesley

probably because it is badly built!

It is heavy but this helps handling on the country roads!

Well you can find your way around, however my brand new MG3 Excite (JUNE 2023) Sat Nav does not have the latest maps downloaded so when I go up the new part of the freeway in Perth it does not exist!!!

Try locking the car with a window open, then after a minute or 2, open the vehicle from the inside & see. First, what does the MG book say?

Hi. My car auto locks from the inside. Is there a way to turn auto lock off. I pick kids up & I have to turn ignition off so the doors can open to let them in....

paul

This is a clever safety feature to prevent opening the door & falling out. If the handbook does not tell you, try opening it a second time.

Have you found any reason for it ??

Mandy
Mandy  

I’ve been told today that it is probably the fuel filter

Rina M.

Did a new fuel filter fix it?

Mandy
Mandy  

No
But new spark plugs did !!!
Apparently they are fitted with cheap spark plugs when MG are produced…they don’t last many kilometres
Replace with good quality plugs…hasn’t missed a beat since !!

Has this issue been repaired for you? I’ve had this problem since I picked it up brand new. They said it needed a wheel alignment (on a brand new car!!!) but it didn’t fix it. Still have the issue.

Has anyone successfully diagnosed the electrical problem with the MG3 where the car's radio, wipers and lights just come on whilst parked and the ignition off? This only happen after driving in the rain. I would appreciate if anyone has isolated this problem and has a solution.

I have had the same problem when parked in the rain. The electrics of the car come on (lights, radio etc) and I can't lock the car...it seems to behave as though it thinks the key is in the ignition. This has happened on 3 separate occasions and it is only 8 months old. I have taken it back to the dealer and they have told me a loose terminal connection on the battery, but I am not convinced. Will see how it goes in future rainstorms...

Tony M.
Tony M.  

Thanks Robin. I too, have taken the MG back to the dealer who advised that there was a loose ignition assembly. They rectified this by tightening it and also advised that if it occurs again they would replace the ignition key assembly. So far, the tightening has worked for several months and especially after the recent heavy rains in Melb. we did not have a problem.

We purchased our 2020 MG3 excite in April of that year. The car hasn't missed a beat. We're currently about to hit 50k.

We bought it as a spare, as we needed a small car to get around town. Yes, the gearbox switches between gears going up hill, I use the tip Tronic shifter, and use the gears I want, the car comes to life.

Fuel economy is six of one and half as dozen of the other. I get approx 500 to 600 a tank, more on the freeway. I guess it comes down to how you drive.

The car mats are flimsy, I purchased after market, much better. I also fitted an after market arm rest that looks factory. I've tinted it, and ceramic coated it.

The car is roomy, seats 4 comfortably, and is very reliable. My only gripe, the battery died at 2 and as half years of ownership. They only offer warranty on the battery up to 2 years, so bummer.

People right reviews bagging the hell out of this car. What do you expect?! A Ferrari?! I have a nice car that cost close to $100k when new, if I compare the MG3 to that, of course, it's garbage in comparison. That's not the point of the car, it's a cheap and cheerful car. So if you want leather and total luxury with a 700 horsepower engine, go spend 3 figures, and buy something better. Everyone is so precious these days.

Did you ask MG? They only update every year or 2. Most car companies will update but all mostly charge hundreds of dollars.
