This one is in response to a poster asking if he should buy a mini.

Don't do it!!!
My 07 MCS has been to the dealer 5 times in 1,800 miles. Mini customer service doesn't want to help. I can't get it bought under the lemon law. I have it at the dealer for repair of a very minor dent and replacing a weather stipping. Today it enters it's FIFTH week. They do not have parts for the 07.
The dealer (Vista, Ft Lauderdale) won't buy it back because in the words of the used car manager: "we have had too many problems with the 07". He would not buy my car AT ANY PRICE.
Yes, they are fun, but if you have to travel so far to the dealership you will regret it as I have.

Based on my personal experience: don't do it!

Yes it is a fun car, but only when they are not at the dealer being serviced.

I have 1,800 miles after 6 months. My Mini has been at the dealer more time than home. It just entered week 5 for a VERY minor dent and replacment of weatherstipping. They don't have any parts for these cars. I have had 3 check engine lights requiring re-programming the computer. One failure by the transmission software. Just not enough for a lemon law buyback.

I tried Mini customer service. They won't help me. The dealer won't buy any 2007 because "we are aware of the problems" and don't want any used ones.
If I ever get my car back, it's going to the auction.

In the mean time, all I can do is try to help someone else from making the mistake of buying an 07. If you have to have one, wait a few months until they fix the problems.

Are you also having problems with 07 S
I bought an 2007 Copper S, with automatic. I took delivery in April - it was one of the first automatics shipped in Florida. After 6 months of ownership the car has 1,800 miles. It spends more time at the dealer than at home!! I am one more "check engine" light away from a lemon law buy-back, so I have my fingers crossed. I have also had the check tramsmission light up and it was stuck in 2nd gear for "limp home" mode. All relating to the computer programming.

I took it to the dealer (Vista Motors in Ft Lauderdale) body shop for a VERY minor dent and to replace a weather strip. It is now going on one month! "We can't get any parts"

I offered to sell it back to Vista and was told by the used car manager that they where aware of the problems with the 07's and wasn't interested in buying my car at any price! The dealers won't buy their own product because of the problems?
Am I the only one with these problems?
Steve

Mikennrg we don't really need to see the chat history of another forum on here. 1 or 2 posts would have been fine but I think you are taking this a little far as these posts aren't benefiting this forum at all.

Just letting people see that he's a troll and probably should be deleted. Those posts he made were the only contributions he made to the Mini forum.

Sounds like this guy (OP) should take his RAM and run over his MINI. Might make him fell better

This forum is different than many others in that there aren't many a$$hole trolls. We aren't constantly having to ignore them, so when one comes around this happens I guess. I'm guilty as well!
