2012 Mini Cooper ProblemsClutch May Wear Prematurely
There are reports of premature clutch wear on cars equipped with manual transmissions. Clutch replacement on these vehicles can be quite costly.
Failure of the automatic transmission is common. Even though the automatic transmission is advertised as "sealed for life," our technicians recommend the automatic transmission fluid be replaced every 30,000 miles with only the approved Mini/BMW fluid. Our technicians recommend thorough troubleshooting before replacing the transmission because programming procedures can affect how the transmission shifts and there is a special procedure to refill the transmission.
2012 Mini Cooper QuestionsHesitates when accelerating quickly (1 answer)
Not when starting from a stop, but if I'm driving and need to accelerate quickly it will hesitate and sometimes when idling it sputters. This all started after getting "cheap" gas. Any suggestions?
I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my radiator fan remains on after i turn the car off and take the key out of the ignition. The car has 10,000 miles on it and i am the only owner it has ever had. It doesn't happen every time. Any thoughts?
