Any positive comments would be welcome!


Nick, legally, responsibility lies with the supplying dealer, so I would start there first

Hopefully you get a positive response, & they can check you're 'on the list'

So it appears that currently a pre August 22 CX car is rather like a 2012-13 M3W . IE you really need to see the list of mods carried out and by whom to know what you are looking at.

If it is a formal recall then there must be an entry in the register (in the UK, with due respect to those caring enough to ship them literally half way around the world)

https://www.gov.uk/check-vehicle-recall

Perhaps if you use this UK check with a UK plate you can find out what is needed and then ask the seller if it has been done ?

Interesting that the DVLA website does not hold any recall information concerning my Plus Four. So does that mean it is not a UK DVLA recall/Stop Dive; just something that MMC instigated?

An AngleMog member has today had his plus four collected to be fixed by the factory, brakes & rad. So things are moving

The recall number is R/2022/168 for the P6 and is classed as a Safety Recall NOT as a Stop Drive Recall. Morgan took that step independently for reasons only known to them. I have spoken to a number of people at Morgan and they confirmed they went “above and beyond” what was necessary.
My dealer is pulling his hair out and can’t tell me when he will receive parts. I spoke to a second dealer who has had 4 kits. The factory is on shutdown this week and there is a receptionist fielding the calls. It’s Unbelievable.

Just checked and the PlusFour is the same recall number check out

Anyone up for joining a class action lawsuit against Morgan, I am getting close and will be seeking legal advice.

Without intending to rub salt into the wound of those who have had to sit looking at their pride and joy. The first date on this thread was 6 June 2022 and cars are now being returned to operation.

I am going to be speculative and say that having the problem understood, proven, and the re-work resolved in six weeks is actually pretty fair work for something that cannot be allowed to error again. Frustration generated the through weak communications not withstanding I think that is actually quite impressive for a tiny company.

Clearly some work yet to do to get everyone running again, possibly a bit more than a warranty extension as well if they want to claw the love back but still not a disaster.

Unless you have been sitting in the garage crying in which case my sympathy to you and I do genuinely know how you feel if it helps at all.

The recall date on the government website is 1st June, and I believe Morgan knew a few weeks before that. So that’s now over 2 months. Communication has been appalling and there should be no excuses for size of company.
Even now dealers can’t tell us when they are getting parts or are able to schedule cars in. Someone at Morgan must know the detail but the lack of transparency and information is quite frankly crap.

If it is merely a safety recall, NOT a STOP/DRIVE and it appears it is, then surely we can drive our cars. Certainly to the dealership for repairs, as per all safety recalls. Has anyone had a definitive agreement to drive by their insurance. ; see this for my car :

MORGAN PLUS FOUR 2021
This vehicle has 1 recall.
