Hello - I own a 2007 Mini Cooper Clubman D - it's done 70k miles.
Last week the car cut out whilst I was driving it. I had to get the recovery people to get me home. I took it to my local garage (I always used to have the car serviced by BMW Mini but it got too expensive) and they replaced a number of bits, filters etc at a cost of £350.
On Saturday the same thing happened. I got the car towed to my local dealer who spent Monday looking for the fault. They took it to the local BMW Mini dealer yesterday who have confirmed the problem is the fuel pump and it will need a new one. I've been given a ball park figure of a few thousand pounds to sort it out, parts and labour. I am in shock. I've read on a few forums that others have had the same problem so seems to be a known fault, and yet BMW Mini aren't acknowledging it's a known fault.
I should get a confirmed cost tomorrow.
Problem is, the car's only worth about £6500 and I still have BMW finance owed on it.
I just don't have a few thousand pounds knocking around to pay a bill like this!
Has anyone else had the problem?
Will BMW Mini pay towards this?
Feel so upset and not quite sure what to do.
I've loved and cherished my Mini, had it religiously serviced by the dealer for the first 3 years of its life and cleaned and polished it to keep it looking good.
