MG GS 2017 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the MG GS here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Why does the auto transmission in my 2019 MG GS have a delay on take-off when it's cold?
Dual-clutch transmissions continue to haunt some manufacturers with poor reliability and short lifespans. I’m not going to categorically say that your gearbox is showing signs of premature wear, but the symptoms you’ve listed – harsh shifting, engagement delays and general harshness – are classic signs that a dual-clutch is not well.
There are many causes of this; wear in the clutch packs can cause shuddering and harsh shifting, while worn internals and iffy electronics can cause delays in the unit selecting gears. Either way, it’s straight back to the dealer for your car, but at least it’s still within the factory warranty period, so it shouldn’t cost you a cent to have it put right.
This type of transmission works beautifully when it’s in tip-top condition, but – speaking very generally – they have been known to give problems early in life and some manufacturers have moved away from this tech to a more conventional style of automatic transmission.Show more
What are you thoughts on the MG GS?
The MG GS launched in early 2017 with sharp pricing and stylish looks, but the company hasn't been keen to hand the cars out for press evaluations following a brief launch 'experience' drive with selected media in Victoria early last year. You can read into that whatever you'd like, but it doesn't scream "confidence in our products" to the team here at CarsGuide. That said, we have the MG ZS - a smaller SUV with similarly sharp pricing - due in the garage soon. Stay tuned for that review.Show more
