WHILE DRIVING MY Countryman ON THE HIGHWAY AT ABOUT 50 MPH, I MY STEERING WHEEL SUDDENLY AND RANDOMLY JERKED TO THE RIGHT. THE JERK WAS SEVER ENOUGH TO CAUSE THE CAR TO SWERVE INTO THE NEXT LANE CUTTING OFF A CLOSE BY VEHICLE. I WAS ABLE TO MAINTAIN MY LINE, AND THE ISSUE OCCURRED AGAIN CAUSING MY CAR TO SWERVE AN ADDITIONAL TIME. THIS IS OF SERIOUS CONCERN FOR ALL DRIVERS THAT THIS HAPPENS TO AND I AM AFRAID THAT THIS WILL RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH. DURING THIS TIME THE ELWEATHER WAS DRY AND ABOUT 60F.THE ROAD WAS CLEAR OF DEBRIS, POTHOLES AND BUMPS. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN WHICH THIS ISSUE OCCURRED FOR ME IN MY +1 YEAR OF OWNERSHIP.

2015 MINI COOPER S
Parts: FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM
  • Date of Incident: Aug-07, 2020
  • Date complaint filed: 03:41 Aug-15, 2020

Fuel filling nozzle shuts off repeatedly while refueling. Upon gassing up, valve clicks immediately and pump shuts off like it's full no matter which gas station or pressure i exert. I saw a bulletin "si m16 01 15" which affected minis produced in 2014 but did not include my 2015 cooper s. A comment from the bulletin had a temporary solution which is to angle the pump to 45, then pump slowly at the magic speed, though this can take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes. This is dangerous on my part as i travel past midnight for several hours and spending more time at a gas station in the dark is worrisome. I do get spills occasionally which i have to keep wiping and is a station hazard. Replacing the fuel tank completely at an estimated $2k+ is too costly especially during this pandemic and is due to faulty manufacturing.
