2013 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 6M)


There is something very wrong with the throttle and/or transmission in the 2013 model that mini is not interesting in fixing. Mine started missing and experiencing erratic acceleration after just about a month.
I hate driving this car. I never know if it will go when I press the gas pedal and have almost been rear-ended and hit from the side when the car delays before accelerating or stops accelerating abruptly.
Had one before that I loved, but I really hate this car.

Is your Mini a manual or an automatic? I currently have an automatic of the same generation and haven't had an issue. I'm curious as to whether or not it affects only certain transmissions.
