2007 Mini Cooper Owner Comments

I had this car serviced about 4 times during the 4 yr warranty period. Just after the warranty period, the car was checked for brake job and I was informed that the water pump leaks. I think the coolant provable was leaking prior to expiration of warranty but I was not informed. I bought 3 cars in 2007 (Honda and Lexus) and none of them has this issue. 1. engine coolant leaks. Replace water pump. 2. engine hood latch won't open. Failed remote latch. The MINICooper estimate will cost me $800 to replace the water pump. I also overheard from one of the MINIowner last sat, 26nov2011 during my visit to the dealer that he also has the same issue leaky water pump.
