My plastic covered wheels on my 04 lasted 118,000 miles. I traded it in and I am sure they are still going strong

OP has a history of doing this. I did a search and guess what turned up. This is from a Mini forum. http://www.northamericanmotoring.com...-problems.html He also has stuff on a Honda forum.

I fact I have decided to dump it at whatever price I can get - if I can get if out of the dealer's service dept - where it has been for 5 weeks!! I have tried to lemon law it, but can't quite get it there.

Dealer abuse. Fees, Fees, Fees on my Mini
My 2007 MCS has been a nightmare. I have hired a lawyer to try for a lemon law buy-back, but it seems a long slow process.

In the meantime, I contacted the dealer, Lauderdale Mini in Ft Lauderdale, to allow me to trade it in on a BMW 328. After a lot of begging on my part to help me out of a real bad car, we reached an agreement.

Lo and behold, when the Sales Agreement showed up they had tacked an additional $499 to the price, labeling it a “dealer services fee” They had a VERY well rehearsed argument to get me to pay more than we agreed to.

In my business (real estate development), we negotiate deals all the time. When we formalize them into a contract I can assure you that the contract reflects what we agreed to. I would be out of business real fast if I agreed to a price and handed someone a contract with a higher price.

Car salesman have a horrendous reputation, and tricks like these show that their reputations are well deserved.

I am telling everyone I can reach: Do not buy a car from Lauderdale Mini (or Lauderdale BMW).

Pass this message on. They are dishonest people.

My feet are on fire and MINI says "TS". HELP ME
Mini heat 138.jpgThe foot well on my '07 MCS gets incredibly hot. I have heard of others complaining of this issue. I took the car to the 2 local dealers (Vista and Lauderdale Mini). Both said it was a design flaw that I would have to live with. From what I understand, there is no shut off valve to keep hot water from circulating in the heater core when heat is not wanted.

They took readings with an infrared thermometer and got 138 degrees on the side next to the gas pedal. It should be noted that it only takes 15 seconds for human skin to get a 3rd degree burn at 133 degrees.

My wife can’t drive the car - she wears open toe shoes and has burnt her feet. I live in S. Florida. We wear flip-flops here. Not with a Mini – you’ll burn your feet.

Mini refuses to fix my car. They offered me less than wholesale when I requested to trade it for a BMW. I have hired an attorney to try to get a lemon law buy back. Failing that I plan to make it my mission to let the world know that Mini has design issues and that they will not stand behind their product.

My goal is to get them to do a recall so these can be fixed. Who knows, maybe during the fight they will offer to buy my car to shut me up.

Anyone who has experienced this problem please let me know. I would like to compile a list so that my attorney can show this is not an isolated problem and that it represents a serious safety issue
Thanks
Steve

Heat In Driver's Footwell?
Is there a problem with excessive heat in the driver's footwell?
The driver's footwell in my 2007 MCS gets incredibly hot. I can't wear flip-flops to drive this car. After 15 minutes my foot is burning up. I took the car to the local dealer (Vista Motors in Ft Lauderdale). They stuffed some padding under the carpet and said that was all they could do. The service tech said that this is “a design flaw” and there is nothing that could be done. He stated that the heater core is located in the right side of the driver’s footwell, and since there is not shut off valve that it will always be hot.
I am trying to see if this is true or just CYA by Mini. Anyone else having this problem?
I called Mini Customer service (Ron @ x7453). They promised to look into it and call back but they never did. This makes me wonder if they are worried about liability and won’t admit to the design flaw.
Thanks
Steve

This one on the key fob is funny. How did it break without being used? LOL
