The MINI has been ranked one of the top ten affordable subcompact cars in the United States. The MINI was manufactured by the British Motor Corporation until 2000, briefly discontinued and then revived and reinvented in 2002 by BMW. Today, MINI offers a variety of subcompact cars including the Cooper, Clubman, Countryman, Paceman, Roadster, Coupes and Convertibles. Since 2002, the MINI has become one of America’s most desirable small cars. Unfortunately, many MINIs are lacking in safety, use and value and are lemons. Fortunately, for consumers, we have both federal and state lemon laws that offer consumers protection in the event they get stuck with a lemon MINI. In order to qualify for lemon law protection, the consumer generally needs to show that his/her car cannot be repaired within in a reasonable number of repair attempts.
Is My Mini a Lemon?
Lemon law claims typically provide consumer protection for cars that are purchased or leased, new or used. The lemon laws, in essence, are warranty laws, which means that the car must have been attempted to be repaired during the warranty period. Various Lemon Law claims have been submitted against a wide range of MINI models for a wide range of issues. These issues include, but are not limited to the following:
- Persistent oil leak
- Oil leak into the electrical system
- Illumination of the check engine light
- Shifter lock up
- Inoperable sunroof
- Cooling system leak
- Premature timing chain wear
- Carbon buildup
- Timing chain broken
- Premature clutch failure
- Transmission failure
- Inoperable power windows
- Noisy clutch bearing
- Odor from air conditioning
- Poor radio reception
