“MGTF”

published 19/06/2006

Great car to drive

Poor build quality

The problem with British manufacturing is that we haven't got a clue how to manufacture quality products. No one it seems takes pride in their work anymore. Our guys go to work in the morning and the impression given is that after about 5 tea breaks the average bloke will then start thinking...

Fun, Fun, Fun

Never!

Bought my TF a week ago. 1 year old with 7000 miles on the clock from main dealer. Originally supplied by them to lady driver. I fell in love with the MGF. Was given the option to opt out of the co car scheme and lept at the chance to get a roadster! Took an MGF 160 Trophy out first of all. A...

“MGTF 1.6 & 1.8”

Price, legroom, Rover Warrenty & looks

Paint chips, Inside the bonnet, standard speakers.

I purchased my second hand MGTF 2 months ago so I am passed the point of the "first month" I love everything about it thoughts. They are nice good cheap sports cars and 4 years ago I owned a MGF so I have returned to MG ownership. I am 6 foot 2 inches tall large(ish) built man & driving this car...

Good fuel economy, excellent standard soundsystem

poor craftsmanship, known electrical issues

the MG TF is a very stylish range. varied engine options and the ability to aquire models with full sports kits at a reasonable price. As it stands in the line up of other 2 door sports cars, it will not hold first place. With poor electrical system and shoddy interior this car will not be at the...

I bought a new '05 TF 135 in April, exactly one week before MGR went bust. I actually consider myself lucky that I got one of the last TFs made, as this has been my dream car for ages. The new '05 model year has a hugely improved suspension with a glass rear window and lots of extras as standard...

“RIP aged 3 & 1/2”

published 05/02/2009

looks good

engine breaks!

hmmm... what a bad little car!!! I bought this car 2nd hand from a dealership in may 07, when it was just over 2yrs old for £8000. 18 months later I traded it in for £1200! First the head gaskett went costing me £500 to fix and less than two weeks later the engine went too and would have cost me...

I bought a 115 MGTF in April 02, in XPower grey. Love the design overall, but the build quality....ARGH!!! absolutely dreadful. Even after six and a half years the manual mirror adjusters still fall off as you are driving along. So why have I still got it? I just love it to bits, it's great fun to drive, with brilliant handling and it's comfortable even on long trips. The main grumble is that having spent £15,750 in 2002 the car is now only worth £3000 on a good day. So I guess I'll be keeping it!

I have my MG TF 1.6 for just over 3 years, had no problems with it. I find it cheap to run and fun to drive. I am just over 6ft tall and manage to get in and out and drive very easy. I would recommend these cars to anyone who wants exciting cheap motoring. The ride is good acceleration very good as is the cornering. A Great Car.

The MG TF is a raw mini-beast of a sports car. Small, but chunky in a way with an engine that drives the car like a rocket. It is not for those who want a smooth luxurious ride. It is for those who want to have a littel fun and adventure. It gives a bumpy ride where you really feel the road and...

“MG-TF”

published 06/10/2006

Great Looks, Driving Position, Fun Drive

Shocking Built Quality, Poor Reliability

I owned an MG-TF in Trophy blue for 2 years. If anybody wants my advice about them, it's don't buy one unless you have lots of cash for repair bills. Without doubt it is a great looking car and great fun to drive. You sit down low in the sports seats and it handles a dream, but the build quality...

the badges get stolen a lot

The Mg Tf is a very comfortable sports car with its engines going up to 1.8 the value for money is the best for a (cheap) top class sports car. Boot space is amazing for example in my one it can fit 4 large set's of golf clubs. the look of it is very sleek and the car it's self is incredibally...

“A great car for all seasons”

published 03/07/2003

A roaring fun car, loads of laughs for summer

a bit rattly and creay in places

I love my MG TF It's a super car for all seasons. The most satisfying thing of all is the roar of the engine. To make it really go you have to rev the engine quite hard which is superb as the gutteral roar that results is one of the most satisfying sounds in the world. It's a bit skitish in the...

I purchased the new MGTF in March 2004. It was my first ever MG and it's excellent. It handles the road well in all conditions and gets the jealous looks from other motorists and passers by. The soft-top roof is one of the best designs I've had for keeping out the rain, however, the disadvantage...
