Angry The Thermostat problem - 2 weeks at the dealers!

So after not starting the other week and me having to get BMW assist out, the car threw another wobbly when the fan came on after turning it off. It stayed running til the battery went flat meaning a tow to the dealer. They diagnosed it as being a faulty thermostat but there are so many faling apparently that its a 10-14 day wait for the part! They also found an oil leak which is being repaired and they are going to do a software update for the stumbling when accelerating. In the meantime Mini have provided me with a BMW 1 series hire car (which is vile but thats another story). The most expensive car i've ever owned and also the one that lasted the least length of time before breaking down!

I hope this is the last of your troubles. Never fun when a new toy plays up. I'm collecting mine on Monday; I hope it behaves...

I had three new thermostats in mine I hate to tell you. Two resulted in the car "failing to proceed" and one was fitted when it went in for a service and I noticed the fan running for too long. The new thermostats did not prove to be a solution even when the revised design was fitted after the second breakdown. Much as I love MINIs (we've had five in our family) every one has had an issue with two breaking down and requiring recovery. I worked for a company that provided VW cars for 10 years and never once had a warranty or breakdown issue.

Sad to say it but this issue of Countryman thermostats does not seem to be sorted yet
