It never ceases to amaze me how a poor dealer can trash a manufacturer, especially when there is some evidence to support the idea of a widespread issue. "It's the first we have heard about it!" is an all to often heard phrase.
What's it tell you when the customer is more well-versed on a product that the seller? Reminds me of shopping at Best Buy... Lol!
There's a guy on the BMW 3 series section at this very moment experiencing the same lack of dealer "quality" that you seem to be experiencing. It's far too common.
Good luck in your "adventure". It sounds like you may need some....

Power Steering hoses leaking ,oil pan gasket leaking,lower control arm bushings and this all needs to be replaced at 50K ,right side engine mount ... Something very fishy !
Class action lawsuit was started against Mini Cooper in 2011 seek and yee shall find .... it's not just a transmission issue it's bigger .
#21 of 21 Engine light on 07 Mini
Feb 02, 2013 (11:28 am)
The engine light keeps coming on in my mini with about 140k miles on it? The engine has a mind of its own sometimes and switches gears on it's own (revs up) . I was told it might be the 02 sensor. Will replacing that fix the problem? If not, what could be the problem? It also burns oil more in the summer months. I love my mini and would like to keep it and also trying to buy another mini.
