        As much as we may not respect the brand (yet), it cannot be ignored that they are indeed great value.

            Vehicles that are unreliable, costly to fix and have poor resale value are NOT what I call great value.

            It’s a bit like the iPhone it’s very expensive but they have extremely good after sales service and up to 6 years of software support which is twice the 3 years that Samisung provides and we all know what their software is like.

            judging the vehicles value solely on the purchase price is a little narrow minded.
            02 NM Pajero 3.2 DID Auto with Snorkel, Turbosmart Dual Stage Boost Controller, Kinugawa 15T Hybrid turbo with 56mm Billet compressor wheel and extended tips, 3” straight through turbo back exhaust, EGR Removal, ECU Piggyback Chip, Raw Nitro shockies, 22” Black Rhino wheels with Black Bear A/T tyres, EGT, boost and engine temp gauges, catch can, Synergy 4b Ronbox, K&N air filter, 320x300 Front mount intercooler with 3” polished inlet piping, 4 Bar MAP sensor @29psi many other mods

                Agree, but it’s a bit early maybe to know if these new Chinese MGs are unreliable..

                  They''ll catch up as the Japs did, then someone else will make cheap junk, but China is big enough to make both good & bad.

                  The amount of machinery & Automotive type components they make now that isn't junk is growing.

                  LOTS of multi nationals have set up in China, hence Trumps tarrifs to help chase his/ USA's home again.

                  The technology they've stolen & gained through proper channels is vast.

                  Interesting tense times, copyright they can't even spell that, that's just a flag for "Technology they haven't got yet", when interpreted to Mandarin.

                      Yep. It's a pointless exercise.

                      Wheels Magazine lost their credibility with 1973 COTY Leyland P76. 1983 Holden Camira COTY along with a couple of Magnas, Ford Territory and the Mitsubishi Nimbus.
