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.

Cooper 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Purchased a 2007 MINIcooper in April of this year, and there are two issues they refuse to look at or fix: 1. the speedometer registers 7% faster than the actual speed. 2. the odometer registers 1% more than the actual mileage. They claim both of these are within acceptable levels.

I have a 2006 MINIcooper john cooper wroks gp. The dsc (directional stability control), low tire warning light, and ABS (anti lock braking) warning lights came on as I traveled on the interstate. No incident occurred to cause a failure. The ABS and dsc systems do not work, or work inappropriately. Discussing this with other MINIcooper owners with the so called works brakes, I find out it is a frequent problem.
