2014 Mini Cooper: Some Kind of Service Alert
October 8, 2014
Among the service alerts I've seen pop up in our long-term cars over the years, the 2014 Mini Cooper's is the most cryptic.
At first, while driving I noticed a tiny orange triangle had appeared in the upper right corner of the odometer display. I mean tiny. No other information was shared with said triangle at this time. It was a mystery.
Once I parked and stopped the engine, the words you see above flashed up in the Mini's gigantic central display. Still not very specific, is it? So, I went digging through the car's various menus to see what I could find. I managed to dig this up:
Talk about inscrutable. We'll get it checked out. I suppose in that respect the alert achieved its desired end result.
