MattB - wow a level of insight I can only dream of. Look forward to seeing some pics of the end product when you get it. Do you have a revised delivery date? Mine is due late Sept which Is a couple of weeks later than I originally expected so hoping the recall will be cleared well before that without too much knock on. Needless to say the anticipation only continues to build …


Finally taken the plunge … Plus Four on order. Alligator Green.

MattB... and DalesPlusFour thank you both for your detailed posts

I have a 2013 build Plus 8, it is beginning to show its age and I have been mulling over a new Plus 4 for some time: your post adds evidence in support of a decision. It will not be green..!!

I also have a Tesla 3 Dual Motor and it is everything the Plus 4 isn't..I drive it because it is cheap to run and has a good sound system, not because it talks to me or makes me want to drive it.
The Plus 8 has carried SWMBO and I over 35,000 miles and she sits in the garage tempting me... I bought the car from MMC in 2014 and I've never owned a car for so long.


Peter,

Tarka 2014 Plus 8....Off the road, since March!

Welcome to a fine club of people that will support your interests. Enjoy the car.


Just time to rent a thimble more petrol before dinner.

DalesPlusFour, congratulations from me on your choice to take a Plus Four. I joined your thread a little later and would like to make up for my greeting.

I really can't imagine the level of bravery of someone buying a new cx from the factory now. It's not a small investment.

Appreciate the suggestion that I’m exhibiting great bravery in purchasing a broadly senseless, practically questionable, undeniably beautiful recreational toy. I think my wife and some friends suggested other character attributes, so I’m delighted to be able to add bravery to the list!

In all seriousness though, as a Morgan outsider and former BMW and now Land Rover owner, y’all’s hand ringing over this seems a bit precious and pedantic. It’s a car from a tiny manufacturer that’s hand made between factory whistles for tea breaks. Sure they’re having some issues but every exotic car does and most non-exotics do too. They’re working hard to fix the mechanical issues and while I’m sure all the arm chair generals here would have fought the battle differently with hind sight, it seems to me they’re working through things in a reasonable fashion given this scale of the issue. And if I’m wrong, then they’re working through things like every other car manufacturer I’ve encountered. At best they’re doing great. At worst, they’re doing fairly standard by the industry standard.

It’s a shame many owners aren’t able to enjoy they’re completely recreational vehicle for a month or two because of a safety recall, but the ire expressed here just serves to indicate the quantity of free time and limited alternative interests of many owners. Cars get recalled. My in-laws had a mini in with the dealer for three months waiting on a thermostat a few years ago. Things happen. We pivot and adapt and remain glad we can enjoy our completely recreational toys when we’re able. Is the recall ideal? No. Is it desirable? No. Is it unexpected for a car manufacturer of any volume? No. At the end of the day you pay your money and you make your choice.
