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.

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.
It’s no secret that MINI Cooper drivers love their cars — and with good reason. They’re stylish, fast, and fun to drive! If you want to keep your MINI performing its best, you’ll need to follow the recommended maintenance schedule.
