Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Mini Cooper Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 022008

Cooper 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 56,344 miles


I have a 2002 MINICooper with 52K miles, the transmission has went out twice in the past 2 years the first time at 31K miles. The clutch has also went out as well as the sunroof motor, left front brake caliper, windshield wiper motor with a host of sensors, gauges etc... parts are impossible to get and service on a 24K car (when new) is as much as my 70K BMW 7 series.
