It isn't bad... Timing chain gone twice... customer service shit... Parts NLA...

How's that "generally ok"? Would you have those problems with a Toyota, or a Ford or ANY OTHER FUCKING MAKE OF CAR? These people are BEYOND HELP.

If only we still had a blog, this chap's devotion to the cause in the face of all common sense would be worth reading.

I think it was a Maestro.

Julian Nowill drove a CityRover somewhere ridiculous. It's currently sat in Sierra Leone, he's thinking of bringing it back I think.

A Cityrover being driven to Africa is hardly an achievement. It must be the most reliable well built car the firm ever sold.

In other news, apart from the breakdowns and repairs, Simcor can't fault the car.

To be fair I have talked to the guy at MG Nottingham a lot and very frankly as well.

We have had some very Frank discussions about various things.

The only 2 common problems they have encountered are the timing chain and clutch issues. They have had other cars in for odd issues but nothing that common.

The newest car they have had in for the timing chain was a 15 plate supposedly something was changed for the 16 model year and that problem is supposed to be resolved.

I know mine has always had clutch judder since I bought it so hoping it is clutch or flywheel related or hopefully a bad replacement starter motor.

I'm theory the newer cars should be fine although my ownership experience has been severely tainted sadly.

Other than the breakdowns and repairs I have been able to fault the car generally.

I haven't been able to confirm either way and he is the dealer/owner I spoke to and he is a car nut and would probably know what he is talking about.

I'm sure I will find out when they get round to looking at it.

But he thinks it's most likely to be a flywheel or gearbox problem.

News just in from .cult... it's fucked and Simcor is becoming an ex-licker.

Just had an update from the garage.

It's not good news basically.

The clutch arm bolts have sheared, play in the shaft as well and a slight oil leak.

So to fix it properly it would want a replacement gearbox and new clutch at the least.

He has confirmed it isn't a DMF on the 3 so that's a good thing I suppose.

Looking at my options now as I am fed up with how much trouble it's been and could throw money at it and something else happen later.

So pretty gutted really.

Why would anyone with any mechanical knowledge think the Flea would have a DMF?

Sheered bolts is a Chinese speciality.

They saw a technical manual specifying cheesehead screws and thought it was a material spec.
