Mini Cooper S Convertible - recall info
I am looking for some advice about my 09 Cooper S convertible. The engine warning light has been on and off for a few weeks. Mini have had a look today and following a £150 diagnostics charge have advised that there is a build up of sludge due to lots of short journeys, meaning the car doesn't get hot enough to burn this off. I apparently need a new rocker cover amongst other things. The estimated cost is between £800 + £1500, depending on how much damage has been done. Mini have offered to cover the cost of the parts, which has made me suspicious that this may be a common fault or possibly a recall.
The car has done just over 40,000 miles. Does anyone have any advice?
