United-Kingdom Mini Countryman rear suspension

Has anyone out there had problems with the rear tracking on their CountrymanSD? Mine is a 61plate with just 20K on the clock and the rear tracking is so out that new tyres are needed as well as new wishbones etc. Big bill as the garage says it is not a warrenty item.

I'd be inclined to try it on with the dealer head office (if you bought from a MINI franchised dealer) or with MINI itself to see if you can get some assistance with the cost.

Presuming you got it under BMW finance, you can always try approaching the finance company and suggesting that as the car is relatively new, the fault must have been there at point of purchase, and therefore MINI should have some shared liability in terms of fitness for purpose under credit terms.

It's worth a go...
