If so that's a positive development, but owners still have to establish which MY CX they own, and presumably get it cleared by a dealer?

I don't wish to capitalise on folks woes, but the M3W stalwarts must be hurting trying not to chortle..! It's history repeating itself all over again. The work and heartache the MTWC and the likes of Mr B have invested in simply ensuring safety and reliability long term is to be applauded.

Unfortunately as has been said, keep replacing until someone else engineers a solution is a cheaper option....for now....

The whole thing is just too sad to be funny.

Absolutely, it just sucks all the joy out of ownership this kind of uncertainty and as you say to see this happening once again is really sad.

The radiator change appears to be a half day job so out of warranty, not a thing you want.

The factory is still making the same cars with the same radiator.Their take is simple
“They are not all failing “ it’s a joke.They have not found the radiator problem for which they have known about well over a year. I personally know people who have had five rads.
Now the brakes.where and when is the fix, this year, next year,sometime never.
For the factory its all about money
My personal take is simple, give me the car I paid for or my money back. I now will miss classic and mog fest plus I have not been to a single mog meeting this year due to car been laid up.
At best I think we should all ask for compensation and if they don’t offer answers soon my car will be going back.
Already spoke to solicitor and they don’t have a leg to stand on,
We all take this rubbish because it’s a Morgan!!! Would you stand it with any other car brand?
Sorry gents rant over

The radiator change is 7 hours labour, + the cost of the radiator.....

Hi Simon,mine is the rad you have which failed at less than 80 miles. Have you started to make a replacement yet?
Have a feeling we will need it
