Customer Checklist On Collection

I've updated the "Fuel" consumption spreadsheet there to account for charge losses, so it calculates charge efficiency as well as vehicle efficiency. :)
Really good info. Really surprised (in a good way) with the charging efficiency. I assume with miles per kw you were on mixed roads, mixed speeds etc. so that is a good blended figure?

What's in the file in grey is just example info - I've not done a charge yet. ;)

Re. mpkWh the car is showing me an average of 3.3 so far, and that's a mix of all road types ... town, country, dual carriageway and motorway.
During my test drive and inspection I noticed that one of the spoilers was a bit loose, after this I checked the showroom and also noticed this on an other mg4. Is this a common issue ?
I think there have been a couple of issues with spoilers being loose, I'm sure it was picked up on a YouTube review also.
I think it has led to some noise above a certain speed but doesn't seem that common a fault though to be fair
Yes above 80 kmh/50 it was maling noise
Out of the 4 cars 2 had the issue. 1 with issue was just delivered to the dealer
Looks like it's just down to poor fitting in the factory and slipping past quality control. Like I said doesn't appear to be that widely reported, although 2 out of 4 isn't great. I'm sure once tightened that will be that, wouldn't have thought it would work itself loose again
Agreed. I can't believe a dealer would allow such an obvious thing to be given to a customer, and I can't believe the owner wouldn't have noticed that when collecting.
Unfortunately some mg dealers would. I've owned 2 mg evs and the way some people have been treated by dealers is deplorable.
There seem to be an emerging number of:
  • Dealer Recalls.
  • Solutions to customers problems. For example gearbox oil leaks.
  • Software updates.

Could I respectfully suggest that rather than having to search through a range of threads, that a list of these KNOWN issues are added here.
For completeness

Bumping this for those (touch wood) lucky people picking up their MG4s over the next week or so. 🤞🚙
Mine will be home delivered by the lease dealer, I wonder if I identify issues as on the list, do I simply reject it or accept and contact the dealer Customer services....
I have an MG4 on order, and decided to run a little document detailing the common faults I've seen mentioned, puerly to remind myself to check these when I collect the car.

I hope this is useful to some of you here too, who might be collectiong yours.

Picked my car up today. I went through the list with the salesman who was impressed with the list. I am glad to say that I could not find anything amiss. Dicksons of Forres, you did me proud, thank you.
