The cars transmission jumps out of 1st gear when turning onto a city street or accelerating from a stoplight on a city street. I was almost rear ended 3 times this week and it? S very dangerous. This has happened numerous times this past week and is a documented problem with the 2015 mini cooper s manual. My car only has 25,400 miles on it. The warranty just expired on 05/18/2019 (out by date) this month and the dealer refuses to repair the problem under warranty. If this is a documented problem, why doesn? T the dealer take the steps to fix it properly?
2015 mini countryman with 48980 miles clutch failed while it was in motion turning from a 50 mph zone to a side street. Dealer covered it except $173 due to extended service maintenance plan. It also cost $155 local service shop for diagnosis. The dealer replaced flywheel, clutch and pressure plates, shift fork and pedal retaining pin and clutch release fork. This could have been a life threatening condition if the right turn was not made in the lower speed road.
