I left the bracket on mine, but since I haven't had a COMPLETE failure yet, I fear they will just blame the Whine on the bracket. I didn't see the old service manager there, so hopefully things will still go smoothly. The service writer I got was some rude older guy.

Crush sleeve and pinion bearings are being replaced.

They told me to pound sand on everything else except the trunk seal that was leaking.

I didn't expect I'd get flack for that.

I'm disappointed that the other 'used car' issues it has they are full-stop unwilling to correct or are pulling the 'it works fine' card :-

What problems are those? What gear do you have in the rear?

Can't hang up phone calls with steering wheel button
Top requires a small amount of 'manual alignment' for both sides to latch
Glove box doesn't latch smoothly, has to be slammed
Front suspension moans over bumps (known TSB, failing lower control arm bushings).

They claimed they couldn't replicate any of those issues.

Car has 3.31s

Trans also grinds going into second and third but only when near freezing temps... Of course they can't replicate that...

I would put some good trans oil in it and see if that helps the grinding issue, hopefully we wont have near freezing temps again for a while after tonight though lol, what was your wine like just decell wine or all the time ive had a bit for a while but i was not nice to my car from day one im assuming its the rear end

It was significantly louder in volume and had a nasty tone pitch under Decell.

and now you know why it was traded in,



i would find a better dealer. In the mean time, i would lube (tiny bit of grease) the latch on the glove box to see if that helps.

put in good rear end fluid and trans fluid to see if that helps.

how much adjustment are we talking about on the vert top, 1" or less, if any more press the issue once you find a better dealer.

ive been told "we cant replicate that" so i showed them myself and had the problem occur, so they new exactally what was going wrong and why.

you might need to have the service writer guy take a ride with you to show them. techs arnt always willing to really look into stuff under warranty as they make less money on warranty stuff.

I don't mind the little stuff to be honest, still LOVE the car, I still think I'm just sour about the back to back experience between Mini and Ford.

Power Train warranty has quite some time before it ends, I'll drive it through snow to the dealer if need be this winter to prove its got an issue. I don't care if I have to wait 3 months for a trans to arrive if its in December

They JUST called me, Diff is all fixed, Trunk seal is fixed, and they updated my SYNC system as a courtesy.

The tech couldn't replicate the front suspension moan, might just bring it to a different dealer and try again...
