Perfect vehicle if you want sporty and practical for the unpredictable road conditions of Colorado. Ps my own only complaint is how mini engineered the radiator hose! The failure mileage was 47, 000 and the current mileage was unknown. I didn't anticipate liking fwd but with the limited slip differential my car has it really pulls through turns. With the seats down, I've loaded a large Costco shopping cart woth of itmes! We have a 2008 Cooper Clubman S. Transmission: Manual 6 Speed Color:Red Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: 0 reviews Much easier to deal w traffic and avoid accidents, since maneuvers so easy.
The vehicle was taken to the dealer who diagnosed that the clutch and fly wheel needed to be replace. And air bag light stays lit. I just changed out myself, due to a slight hole in hose, from being as low and behind the front bumper! It was not clear why the indicator only tells when brakes are totally shot, or why the most recent service check had not shown worn pads and disks.

Mini does not list any fluids other than the factory fluids, but several manufacturers list their products as 'compatible' with factory fluids - these options are listed under 'Alternate Fluids'. I fortunately was able to limp it to a shop without any fire. Transmission: Manual 6 Speed Color:Gray Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: 5 reviews Very quick! I may need to invest in air shocks, to heighten vehicle.
Note: Some alternate options are also factory original fluid. Have since tied up +ok. The automatic door lock on the driver?. Also had a problem with overheating about 4 months after car was purchased. Or, click to view all available manual transmission fluids. Noise level blocked when windows and 2 sunroof shut. The turbo provides a fantastic amount of power to the front wheels.
Mini needs to suck it up and claim responsibility for these shoddily made cars, they have made their money and don't care to help with anything. But the light still stays lit. Just wish I can find the roof racks for it at a good price. Have had this problem corrected once or twice. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure who offered to pay for half of the costs. Only other comparable vehicle is the Evoke, but it's twice as expensive.
When the car is cold it shifts pretty normally, but after 15-25 minutes of driving the first two gears become hard to engage and they slip. The clutch has also went out as well as the sunroof motor, left front brake caliper, windshield wiper motor with a host of sensors, gauges etc. With the seats down, I've loaded a large Costco shopping cart woth of itmes! Only other comparable vehicle is the Evoke, but it's twice as expensive. It can be used as a daily driver given its gas economy. Amazing room for storage, and carrying heavy items! Should they have replaced the clutch when they replaced the transmission? Give us a call at 1-800-946-2642 or email us.
Now at 60k miles the clutch is basically done. It really is the best of both worlds. Given its light weight, small size and turbo engine it performs well. Appears to be a common problem on message boards on the web. I have 2 white dogs, and because this particular Club was special ordered, only one I'm aware of w real white leather seats. I have records of all service and check it regularly and it has never been low. Shortly after the warranty expired, and 10,481 miles after a dealer maintenance check, the brake light indicator began flashing.
I may need to invest in air shocks, to heighten vehicle. I was told that there was a crack in the transmission. Have since tied up +ok. I have had 2 previous hondas that were cheaper than the Mini and never needed a clutch or transmission. I took it immediately to the dealer.
Ps my own only complaint is how mini engineered the radiator hose! Great size, even for 4 adults not recommended for children or pets. Choose Your Car Type - Not sure? I will be sure to discourage others from buying one. Great size, even for 4 adults not recommended for children or pets. I hope a class action suit is formed. I didn't anticipate liking fwd but with the limited slip differential my car has it really pulls through turns.
Unit contains sealed bearings so I'm told , that are not serviceable. I'm not a mechanic but to lose a clutch at 60k miles doesn't make any sense. I'm not lighting up the tires at traffic lights or racing people. I just changed out myself, due to a slight hole in hose, from being as low and behind the front bumper! Very economical on gas, averaging 35 mpg. Mini replaced it with I'm guessing a rebuilt transmission. Perfect vehicle if you want sporty and practical for the unpredictable road conditions of Colorado. The bearing is apparently not getting a proper supply of fluid.
