Consumers have filed a total of 5 complaints for Cooper Clubman models.
I was driving behind my girlfriend who was driving my 2016 mini clubman, when i noticed the brake lights appeared to not be working... I took the mini clubman to the dealership the next day, showed them the problem and the inspector said he would get it fixed by their service team. After they had it for 24 hours, they called to tell me that the way the lights were working is the correct light pattern for this vehicle. They were also stumped because they felt this wasn't the best brake lighting for a vehicle but upon further investigation they determined that all mini coooper clubmans have this brake lighting. Ifeel the brake lights are difficult to see and why are they so low? Why couldn't mini utilize the upper big red lights for brake lights? I was driving behind the mini in a truck and it was difficult to see the brake lights. I think there should be a recall and they shoudl fix this brake light issue.
Lighting right stop bumper, the bulb holder damage
The barn style tailgate doors swing open while driving. This has happened on a number of occasions, including while driving on the freeway. If pressure is accidentally applied to the remote, one of the doors will swing open unexpectedly, potentially causing accidents.
Purchased a factory demo mini countryman dec, 28th 2016 with 4,599 miles on the odometer. The factory supplied tires are goodyear efficiency grip run flat 225/45/r18. At apprx 13,000 during service at the dealership i was shown a "bubble" in the front passenger sidewall. No damage to rim nor was there any cosmetic indications of an impact. Tire is cracking around the egg sized bubble. It is incredible how large this is considering i have been in the automotive business for 21 years. Today apprx 6 hours ago i noticed a smaller but equally alarming "bubble" in the sidewall of the front driver tire. Since finding the 2nd compromised sidewall, a quick internet search shows this is a tire with a huge reputation for "sidewall goose eggs". This is a huge financial blow for our large barely middle class family. I am appalled at the nonexistent warranty tire manufacturers actually have to back up. A dangerous product and the consumer is penalized. Life threatening products should be a no questions asked replacement with labor costs covered.
My mini was involved in an accident on sept. 23, 2016, the front/back airbags on the drivers side deployed. The dealership is taking an unreasonable amount of time to deliver the parts to the collision company. I have been waiting since jan/2017 for the parts to my car. Since the left/right front airbags are recalls, is there a safety issue and why is it taking 6 months to receive them?
