Our MINIburned to the ground. It had only been driven 20 miles and was parked when it happened. After a forensic specialist was hired by the insurance company, it was determined that the ABS unit was at fault. In later models, the fuse was changed from a 30 amp to a 20 amp. No recall was ever issued and BMW/MINInever acknowledged a problem with the car. Since this happened, at least 10-15 other minis have burned. Our MINIwas a total loss.
