Used MG TF (2002 - 2005) Review

Review by Parkers on
2.5
These funsters are fitted with free-revving engines located behind the rear seats to give balanced handling and confident roadholding. The F had a hydra-gas suspension set up that has been replaced with more conventional springs and dampers on the TF.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

2.5 out of 5

These funsters are fitted with free-revving engines located behind the rear seats to give balanced handling and confident roadholding. The F had a hydra-gas suspension set up that has been replaced with more conventional springs and dampers on the TF. This allows a more sporting feel, but at the expense of ride quality which is better on the older car.

The VVC engine is the pick of the range - adding spice to this already convincing package.

What owners say...

 Comfortable to drive, easy to park and with a pretty generous boot size for this type of car (second only to the Mk1 MR2 I used to own).

 Easy to park, small to get through gaps- 2 seater means you don't have to take unnecessary baggage . Its ME time!

 Its a 2-seater and so you don't have to take unecessary baggage. Its easy to park and doesn't take up much room.Its got a decent-sized boot at back and some storage in front as there is no-spare wheel...
