The current COVID-19 pandemic has ground life as we know it to a halt.

MINI Coopers are known for being very reliable. However, when the mileage starts to creep up or your vehicle reaches a certain age, you’re more likely to run into problems with your vehicle’s automatic transmission. Certain driving habits, like frequently stopping and starting or idling for long periods, can also make your vehicle more prone to transmission problems.
When these issues arrive, taking care of them sooner rather than later can save you a significant amount of time, money, and frustration. This starts with keeping up with your recommended maintenance and knowing the warning signs to watch out for. Here are five telltale signs that your Mini may have a transmission problem.

Getting into an accident is no fun, especially if you’re driving a high-end vehicle like a BMW. Not only is bodywork expensive to repair, but, there’s a chance you could have some internal damage as well.
While not every accident results in damage to a vehicle’s engine or transmission, it’s certainly possible. It’s also important to note that you don’t have to have a major collision to end up with damage to your vehicle’s internal structure. Sometimes, a simple fender bender is enough to cause some serious issues.
At The HAUS, we’ve seen first hand what can happen when BMW owners dismiss a small collision as no big deal. Often, it takes a skilled professional to detect minor damage early — before it becomes a major problem. Here are some of the things you need to watch out for.
