Send me a private message - I have all the answers you need on this issue and what your rights are and what you need to do without delay,.Hi All,
I am so happy to have found this thread. We picked up a brand new MG ZS Exclusive 1.0T in June 2020. The Wife and I have taken the car back twice to the dealership because of this mis-firing/hesitation issue that everyone on this forum is talking about.
I agree with the not-revving beyond 3-4000rpm. I put my foot all the way down on the accelerator and the car just wouldn't rev past the limit as above.
Letting the car idle - it jumps at times suggesting a mis-fire.
The car feels underpowered when driving or 'holding back', suggesting a fuel/air ratio mixture is running lean.
Not changing down gears when you put your foot down
Smell of burning/friction after short drives
All of the replies I have read on this thread, i'm like, yeah, that's happened to me. I am just happy its not just me and seems to be a major issuing affecting a lot owners.
When we took it in, the first excuse the technician came up with was we may have put dodgy petrol in and that is what is causing the problem. They changed the particle sensor as a precaution and handed the car back to us. It was better at first, but now all the problems have come back again two months down the line.
I do not agree with the fact that we have to drive the car for a long run every weekend to ensure no build up of soot which requires the 'regeneration' process. I am now also worried about this stalling environment with the stop/start.
We purchased a new car to avoid all the issues that you sometimes encounter with used cars.
We also purchased the car in cash, so I am not sure what rights we have under the consumer act to either return the car or request a replacement.
I work overseas, so my wife is stuck with dealing with the problems along with school runs, etc. She needs a reliable car!
I feel slightly happier that we are not alone, but we need to figure out what our rights are.
Can we go for a recall? or can we just return the car requesting a full refund? I need to read the Consumer Act carefully.
