Philip MG MG4 EV 150kW Trophy EV Long Range 64kWh Auto MY22

I like the way the vehicle looks and it's a very enjoyable car to drive. However, the in-vehicle technology has glitches and the radio has stopped working completely. It has just been serviced and the garage have said that it needs a new part to repair the radio. Before it stopped completely the radio would stop when the rear demister was switched on.
