| | GEARBOX - Whats the full story?
Having just purchased my first 02 Cooper, notS, I feel a little apprehensive with the gearbox issues. But with all cars, if you read about all the issues, you would never invest. I have owned many cars, most recently, Porsche Boxster, which has issues with the crankshaft oil seal, scary but had no issues. Audi TT, dashpod issues, I had this, but no real issue.
Now I have a Mini Cooper and the main issue is the Midland Gearbox, here we go again, anxious feelings. Still, as we all know, out of the 100s of 1000s of cars on the road, we only here about the failures. So to cut a long thread short:
How many maintenance free gearbox's are out there and what mileage have you covered?
Mine has 50,000 and no issues yet, will change oil as a safety measure.
