I wrote Mini North America about this problem and mentioned that there are a lot of complaints in the forums about the 2005-2007 models having this very problem of the cable snapping on the convertible tops.
Rather than being willing to assist with the cost of the repairs, which Mini does on a case by case basis here is the response I received:
1. Because I bought the car at CarMax used I am not considered a 'preferred' owner of the vehicle.
-Really? I have to buy from a Mini Dealer to be considered a 'preferred' owner? Wow the ego those German Engineers have about their cars
2. There are no maintenance records on the vehicle since 2008.
-This is my problem? I just bought the car in 2011 and I am being blamed for no maintenance since 2008.
I have no use for Mini right now and because of the attitude, not the car (I love my car), I would never buy another one.
