2008 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


I bought my 2008 Mini brand new as I wanted a fun car to drive. I have been to the dealer for fixing things so often I am now on a first name basis with them. It's no one big thing, but a bunch of little things. Windows don't work properly, engine indication lights come on randomly, I needed a new valve cover gasket at 28,000 km and since getting the car back from the dealer, it sounds like a diesel. I tried to get it back in right away, but was told that I have to wait three weeks, likely causing further damage. I don't care if the repairs are fixed under warranty. It's the hassle of taking time from my day and having to continuously take the car in that is driving me nuts.
