2013 MINI Cooper Countryman John Cooper Works ALL4 4dr Wagon AWD (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Since the day I picked the car up at the dealer I had a problem.
The radio overheated and turned off on my drive home.
I've had it in the shop over four times, the radio replaced, and it still has the same problem.
Apparently all Mini's have this problem; it's not just mine.
They pulled other Coopers off the lot to perform the same test, and found the same result.
I was finally was turned over to the regional office to resolve my issue since the radio is "operating as designed".
After four months of dealing with them, I'm offered either a buy back for a fraction of the price, or a cash settlement to buy an after market radio which doesn't exist.
The heated seats and headlamps; that's it.
Design a radio that works for longer than an hour
Install the suspension from the BMW's on the MINI's
Work on the automatic 2WD to 4WD; it needs much improvement
Build a satisfactory product instead of trying to buy off unhappy customers
