problem #1

Jan 022008

Cooper 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 56,344 miles
I have a 2002 MINICooper with 52K miles, the transmission has went out twice in the past 2 years the first time at 31K miles. 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... parts are impossible to get and service on a 24K car (when new) is as much as my 70K BMW 7 series.
