for that price it's almost a no brainer!!!

 

Better looking interior than I imagined...bonnet looks to have bits of road rash - but otherwise tidy

Not too sure about the Belts done statement!!!

115,000 so not stupid miles...

Go for it!!!

I'm over in Oldham, but might be able to go and cast an eye over it next Saturday for you if no one else can. Can't store it though unfortunately.

The belt is a 7 year/80k job and servicing is every 15k. There is a throttle remap offered by the dealers that makes the pick up slightly less aggressive and the last shat nav was 2014.

Look out for rattling trim (cupholders and parcel shelf are TADTS) and make sure it pulls clean through the revs. Blocked plenum drains can have the ECU swimming, so make sure it's clear too. Handbrakes are the same as a 75/zt so not too sparkling either unless adjusted up.

If it's been stood for a while, the traction control warnings might light up, but should clear once the engine has run for a bit. A strong battery is a must or the ECUs get upset.

The MG6 faceache page is worth joining for info and a laugh. At least this a petrol K series (TCi Tech)  and not the diesel. The UK only diesel seems to suffer many issues including abysmal parts availability and the reliability you might expect of an adapted boat & forklift motor. Yunnei Kunming diesel if your interested. 

The petrol seems to suffer from variable idle quality. All seem to suffer from endless sensor faults, random electronic warnings, weak gearboxes based on an 80s Toyota design that weren't always properly filled with oil from the factory. Also talk of hard to fix alignment problems, suspension wear, steering issues, door handles not working, trim coming adrift, rust, hopeless dealers etc. Oh and they are frequently referred to as 'not liking winter'. 

Get it bought.
