    My friend got a mg hs auto 1.5 gdi and the engine management light has came on foot second time now. Had car for a month or so. MG said it’s the ECU so its back in the garage and they’ve said they’ve got to get in touch with MG and it could take a while.


    Has anyone else had problems with their MG HS?


    Thank you xx

    You should take a look at the Toyota rav4 hybrid AWD 2.5ltr petrol excel 222bhp xx 0-60 about 8secs xx its lush xx I’ve never seen mpg so good xx we had seat Alhambra xx lucky to get 28mpg and around 380 miles out of fill tank but in the Toyota we get 499 full tank sometimes the mpg goes to 199.99 cos it cant go up any higher xx it’s so comfortable to drive and has very little roll and great road grip xx but defo worth a look if not already done so xx

    Menorca. We got the MG HS back yesterday. And today we travelled to Norfolk 210 miles. My husband has looked and we average around 40MPG.

    Hope that helps.

    My MG HS going in to garage to be looked at – week after next – they are all minor issues but the auto box is hit &  miss not smooth at low speeds, had management orange warning triangle come on a few times , the infotainment system ghosting or freezing ad hoc & power tailgate got stuck in open once.

    i still love it very comfy – go for my disability & comfort (pain levels)

    the comprehensive tech & seats made up for the issues thus far

    averaging 40mpg

    We’ve not long ordered ours but not put off by the stories in this thread. We’ve had issues with other brand new cars, Our Mini Countryman SD was in and out of the dealership multiple times and they never managed to fix it in the 3 years we had it. Had a few niggles with our Skoda Superb as well.

    Susan what were your niggles with the Skoda ?

    Mike, on the Superb the screen wash spray on the optional rear wiper is useless, in fact useless is an understatement and even in heavy rain that wiper judders across the back window making an awful noise. The auto gear change can be a bit grabby at times and late to change up. The biggest issue though is battery drain if the car is sat around without being driven for a while or not driven regularly. I had to fit a solar panel battery charger which charges the car battery via the 12v socket and that fixed that issue.
