Ive had my Cooper s for about 6ish weeks now, i replaced my older R50 with this mainly because all i had was major problem after problem so decided enouh was enough and wanted a newer faster more reliable model... WELL..
After a few days i noticed it sounded like a diesel starting up? the would disapear after a few minutes & when driving it felt like it was loosing power in short bouts when i put my foot down (juddering), was quite scary when on the motorway, thought it was going to die on the outside lane!
Ive done abit of research on here and MiniTorque and it all points to the timing chain so im panicking
my garage is going to do diagnostics on tuesday but does this sound familiar to anyone? I'm hoping to find out the damage before i have to fork out for it.
I'm a bit peeved as i was hoping the unreliablity was over
My partner told me not to get another mini but i didnt listen
