Recall

I've had my F56 cooper since March 28th and a few niggles have arisen first up the material on the base of the passenger seat has come apart , the shut lines on the bonnet around the grill look to be too big and the trim in the passenger footwell has a large gap where it meets the next panel up to the glovebox and finally the clutch squeaks when changing gear. I booked it into my dealer for the work to be carried out and when I dropped it off they informed me that a recall has been issued by MINI for a fault on the starter motor, apparently moisture can lodge in it which will eventually cause it to fail. Now unfortunately the car being so new they have ordered new parts for the seat and who knows when they'll come in the squeaking clutch is the fork selector so the gear box will have to come out so the car will be rebooked into the dealer for a week when said parts come in and seat , trim panel , shut lines on bonnet and clutch will be done in one hit. On the plus side the starter motor was sorted phew

Hmmmm.........this is now making me ask myself if I should hold off for a while before changing over to the new model.

Thanks for being so candid about your troubles.

Thats the last thing you need really isnt it? a brand new car and they have got to start pulling it apart, and from my experience upholstery isnt the garage mechanics speciality either, it never looks the same once they have messed with it, they ought to get a proper auto trimmer in to fit it, which I doubt they will do.
No doubt other faults will appear as they always do with a new model for a couple of years until they get it all sussed out.

car finally sorted with new seat cover clips that had snapped and to be fair the dealer has done a good job, next the gear box came out and a new thrust bearing and selector fork was fitted so now i have a silent clutch. shut lines on bonnet were sorted in the body shop along with the interior panel so all is good and im smiling again. i was given a f56 cooper D in british racing green as a loan car for the 4 days they had my car in for repair and i made the right choice in buying the petrol version it's much quicker for starters and the steering is more precise than the diesel but its still a good car especially the mpg which is amazing.
