    Saw one of these ghastly looking monstrosities today.

    I peered down at the minion within and just couldn't help but laugh at his sack of rubbish wannabe-rep-mobile. couldn't tell if he was a rep or owned the car.

    Either way, that car is a joke of epic proportions and I couldn't contain my laughter and disdain for something exceptionally craptacular! Of all the cars to buy on Gods Green Earth, why the (expletive!) would you have THAT!

    :eek: :Epic Fail:

    At least Toyota are honest enough to recall and attempt to fix their wrongs. How many German car makers have done the same - especially when their chocolate engine reliability has never been in the top ten for almost a quarter of a century now....

    Getting back to the MG6, I think I have seen about 3 in total - seriously - WHY, just WHY would anyone buy this heap of trash? WHY?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!

    Have any of you actually driven one of these? You might be quite surprised. I had one for a weekend when Avis put some on their UK hire fleet. It has actually quite a strong engine (I drove the 1.8 turbo petrol), a crisp gearbox and the ride and handling is quite decent, something some of the UK motoring magazines have commented on, somewhat to their surprise too. The standard kit for the price is pretty good too. Styling is a personal matter, and it certainly has its faults , including poor rear visibility, indifferent interior trim quality and instruments which are too small. I probably wouldn't choose to buy one, there are better cars to drive in its class IMHO, but I can understand why some people might, with the generous guarantee and free servicing packages MG has offered. Forty to fifty years ago the first Japanese cars imported into Europe were ridiculed, the same happened to the first Korean cars in the 1990s, and now the Chinese are starting their export offensive. If MG can sort out their marketing in the UK and distribution in continental Europe, I wouldn't take any bets on where they may reach in another 15-20 years.

    PS Please don't flame me for daring to suggest that anything other than a Honda Accord has any merit at all!

    That looks better than the hideous ugly current gen Civic! If anything the Civic looks like a Chinese car made in some dodgy factory.

    Can't help noticing a major design flaw.

    The first door handle I designed was a total failure, known in the trade as a chocolate fireguard. When "finished", I tried to add screw-holes, but there was nowhere to put them without ruining the article. From then on, I began any design with the necessary "givens."

    This car has no suitable place for the front number plate, which ends up on a three - dimensionally curved surface, partially obscuring the air-vent beneath.
    Not a good start for a nation with such an illustrious history -- as anyone who has studied Feng Shui will be aware, they were highly sophisticated when we lived in caves. How times do change.

    This is all that matters.

    You can polish a turd, but its still a turd. And thats exactly what the MG6 is. A polished turd.
