GT one year of ownership
Bought my GT 1.9JTDm 06 plate 12 months ago - wasn't really looking for one but something happened and on impulse - a test drive and bang bought it.
Had a petrol 1.8 MGZT for 4 years before this and 3 company L200 Warriors before that.
though I would share my experience
car was in very good condition overall with 64k on the clock (verified) - service history was pretty good about 85% - blip on the last owner (but it was a time thing than mileage)
Had receipts from main dealer for all services plus and a clutch change at 52k, timing belt at same time (no pump) and plenty of bits and bobs - discs etc
Came with a 12 month MOT and oil and filter change.
I`ve done 10k miles in the 12 months. - work everyday (150/week), plenty of weekends away around the country, 10 days in mid france - so a good range of driving (I live in north east)
so here we go ..........
I decided to have a pump and belt done after buying it which was done before 66k - I saw the pump that was removed it was showing signs of wear.
its had front tyres at 67k and back just at 73k
this month it had an MOT and a major services (oil, all filters, brake check, lube pivot points etc)
Had the drop rods changed on both sides and front pads.
and that's it - I`m just coming up 74k
Its been an absolute pleasure - I love everything about the drive, the looks, the fuel economy and the compliments it gets including the colour (nuvola blue - !)
If anyone asked my should they buy one....... without a doubt !
Looking to another good year of motoring and with a view to a good 159 next
