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.

2007 Mini Cooper S Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 212011

Cooper S Hard Top 1.6L 4 cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 37,500 miles


I think I got taken by Mini of Ontario.Ca. Called Mimni of America and talked to them twice and now they will not return my calls. how can a valve go bad at this low mileage.I have the old cover and hose that they replaced and the cover does not look the same as the original and the hose does not have the protected webbing for heat protection. In the earlier part of the month I had the valve cover gasket replaced and it was leaking oil again, I took it back to mini of Ontario and that's when they told me the valve cover and the hose had to be replaced.I believe that I was Taken by the dealer.
