“MG ZT. Much better than you would think.”

Written on: 14/06/2012 by Elephuntle (2 reviews written)

Having recently bought a 190SE I can honestly say that they are a much under rated beast. It is a good solid, well engineered (with the help of BMW), well equiped car. Its not the fastest thing on the road but it sounds great and is perfectly adequate 95% of the time. Handling is tight and predictable and the ride not too harsh. Its well worth having a look on the owners forum site as they have a wealth of knowledge and experience. The V6, unless you are doing a huge mileage, is the one to go… Read Full Review

“What is there to say on the best handling car I have...”

Written on: 08/07/2010

What is there to say on the best handling car I have ever owned. The performance of my 190 is superb it is well equipped and has been fitted with the sports suspension pack (my only mistake) this gives it exception handling but a boneshaker ride over rough surfaces. But you forgive it everything every time you turn the key or enter a fast bend it's a real drivers car with rugged good looks. They are one of the best-kept secrets of motoring a barging ...
...and only last about 20 -25k budget on… Read Full Review

Great car. I used to own BMW's and this to me is better. I'm smitten. Its never a dull drive in the big old MG.

Written on: 15/02/2008 by callanarsenal (1 review written)

I bought my 05 second hand Silver ZT 190+ with 18,000 on the clock in June 07, what a car! I live 80 miles from the garage where it was for sale, in this neck of the woods this is an extremely rare car, the garage agreed to bring it to me to view, it went past me as I was sitting waiting to view it in my old car, unbeknown to the salesman I had already decided to buy based on its looks alone! The drive is an awsome experance, what power & grunt from the V6, the noise high rev is sensational, no… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/12/2007 by antleeds3056 (1 review written)

Mg (Rover) ZT 190+ in solar red 2005 bought with 18k miles now26k . I have owned the car for 13 months and have waited this long to place a review so it would be objective and accurate (in my opinion of course) for any reader who may be thinking about purchasing a ZT

The reason i said I had waited is down to the fact that the review i would have given say 10 months ago would have been very different for this review. Hear go's

The car looks absolutely stunning in red with the 18inch alloys and… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/03/2008

I found this review helpful because...it was comprehensive and covered all of the question marks I had in my mind following a recent road test.
Especially useful was the comment about the tightness of clutch and engine up until 25 k miles.
I noticed the same thing on my test drive and it put my mind at rest.
<br/>many thanks....

Written on: 12/03/2007 by paul sanderson (12 reviews written)

Got the car 18 months old with 15K on for £8K a bargain!
It had a water leak on the thermostat (repaired by the garage I bought it from for free).
Then the wheel bearing went and the warranty tried to say 'fair wear and tear'.
The parts were a nightmare to get hold off had to wait 2 weeks!!!
The washers packed in for no apparent reason and then worked again.
I couldn't wait to get rid of it then.
Now got a slightly older (53reg) 2.7 Hyundai Coupe and although the engine is not as sweet, at… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/03/2006 by neilotto (1 review written)

I was looking for a new car, mainly BMW or Merc, but saw the MG Rover ZT, a 190+ in X-power grey at nearly half of what we were expecting to pay for the others, test drove it and fell in love. Since owning it we have had no problems with it at all. It has all the things we were looking for on the other makes of car, and best of all we have saved a lot of money both in buying it in the first place and keeping it going… Read Full Review

Awesome car, have had some good times but my wife hates it the clutch is to heavy and it goes to fast, I have absolutely no complaints about this car and I will be so sad to see my baby go, but my wife says it must, so it must.

Written on: 31/12/2005 by hoisttocrew (2 reviews written)

Overall the MG Rover ZT 190 V6 is a great car, really good fun to drive, pretty quick, and remarkably practical too (the Rover 75 underpinnings shining through, I suppose). There are a couple of small issues with build quality (the doors need a real slam to get them shut, and the inertia reel on the passenger seatbelt is temperamental - several passengers have ended up sat in the back because the front one wouldn't behave!), but so far it's reliable, and my only real gripe is the cost of… Read Full Review

Faultless in the year that I have had my latest 190+ which follows on from a 260SE and an earlier (Y-reg) 190. Service intervals at just one-a-year are twice as long as for the V8 260 version. A well built car, and you don't see (m)any of them in hedges, unlike the ZRs!… Read Full Review

I bought a new MG Rover ZT 190+ recently and what a super car! I looked at BMW`s, and this car is a much better and under rated choice. It is reliable and a joy to drive. Value for money is good at £24,000 new. Now brand new registered car`s are at around £14,500. Try one please!!… Read Full Review

I have had my ZT190 for 6 months in which time I have fitted a power flow exhaust K&N race filter and a bigger throttle body it is now about 204bhp not that much more power but watch all the little boy racers sink lower into their seats when you pull up at the lights and they hear the big v6 roaring at them. I have owned 3 BMW's a VW and 2 Audi's and I would say its the best all rounder for looks, power and handling if not a little thirsty… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/07/2005 by Paul L (1 review written)

2nd Rover ZT we have had in the family - both delighted. The car has been faultless and I have enjoyed every minute of driving it. I bought mine for much much less than an equiv German car and having owned several I can say this is every bit as good - just look at any user satisfaction survey or owners forum. Running costs not too bad - 28-31mpg, 15k service interval, belt change not due until 90k - only 18" tyres pricey but last 20k & getting cheaper now. Chassis so capable (uprated… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/04/2005 by peter rogers (1 review written)

I've owned one of these MG Rover ZT 190+V6 Executive Cars for 2 1/2 years. Aside from running costs (which if like us you only run one car) this is by far the best car I've ever owned. 100% reliable, fast (when gunned), great looks, and exclusive. It amazes me that people who've just spent £30K on a dull BMW look at it ruefully! By being stupidly badge conscious they have done themselves out of a seriously great bargain car… Read Full Review
