ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING

 The hood (right above the hood scoop) on my r56 07 mini cooper s is extremely hot after any driving at all. it's literally hot enough to melt the plastic on the hood. this is well over 200 degrees f and is a huge safety hazard to not only myself but any individual passing by the car. i'm deathly afraid that this will either start a fire in my garage or cause an individual to accidentally burn themselves on the hood of my car. i have already been burned from this once by placing my hand on the hood. *tr

 Mini cooper s 07 makes a horrible rattle on cold start up. engine light comes on. car dies. sounds like there is no oil in engine. after car is warmed up noise goes away. dealer has replaced non return oil valve. didn't work. car has been at the dealer at least 6 times for this problem. this must be damaging the engine. only 13,300 miles on the car. *tr

 (1) a deise-like rattling noise, not in time with the engine, coming from under the hood on start-up. the noise would eventually go away as the engine warmed up. as time progressed, the noise grew louder and took longer to subside. vehicle was eventually turned over to the dealer for evaluation. (2) the noise was determined to be a failure of the oil-fed cam chain tensioner. the piston was determined to be starved of oil, causing the cam chain to create a rattling noise increasing in volume and duration. (3) parts were ordered to fix the cam chain tensioner and the piston and tensioner were replaced. there is still some rattling on start-up, but the noise has significantly diminished. several other owners online have reported similar issues and it appears the replacement of the cam chain tensioner is a temporary fix (with the noise returning some weeks later). failure of the cam chain tensioner will lead to additional wear on the cam chain eventually damage to the engine case, cams and valves themselves. a catastrophic engine failure will occur if this issue is not addressed. *tr

 Extreme hood temperature due to turbo in excess of 225 degrees f due to extreme temperatures burns to body parts up to 2nd degree can occur if hood of car is touched. damage to plastic hoodscoop on car...basically it is melting and deforming i replaced the hood scoope and refrain from touching the hood for about an hour after the car is shut off. this is a problem if i am going to have work done on the car. *jb

 1. i was unloading a few things from the back of car. 2. the failure is that the stock mini cooper s tailpipe extend beyond the rear bumper which is right where you have to stand to access the trunk. the consequences are that i got a big circular burn on my calf when i leaned in to grab something. 3. what can i do to correct this? it's a stock part / design that's never been recalled and is still for sale. *jb

 My 10 year old daughter received a serious burn on her leg from the exhaust of my mini cooper s. the double exhaust is located in the center back of the car and extends past the edge of the vehicle. it is very difficult to get items out of the trunk area without touching the exhaust. the exhaust in located in the exact location where one stands to retrieve cargo. i have burned my leg twice unloading groceries. it takes a constant effort to remember to avoid the exhaust. this is a serious design flaw that needs to be addressed. *jb add picture *121108 cw updated 12/11/08

 I parked my car after arriving at my friends house, which was approx. a two hour drive. after reaching inside of the hatchback to grab luggage out of my 2007 mini cooper 's' i was burned on my leg by the tailpipe. after stepping away from the vehicle my leg was red in two spots (twin-pipe) and then bubbled in the next several hours and scabbed. i noticed that the tail pipe extends beyond the body of the car which allows for easy skin contact with the hot pipe. updated 04-15-08 *bf updated

 Area near the gas pedal gets extremely hot, as well as the wall to the right of the gas pedal. it's hot enough that i can't lean a bare foot against it.. too hot. this could be dangerous as a driver could inadvertently rest his foot on the wall, and be surprised by the extreme heat, jerk their foot away and possible hit the gas pedal. *tr

 Tl*the contact owns a 2007 mini cooper (na). the contact stated that the hood of the vehicle would reach 200 degrees after it was parked. the washer jets that rest on the hood leaked water when the hood was hot. the failure occurred each time after the vehicle was driven. the dealer stated that the temperature was normal. the contact believes that the heat was caused by the turbo charger. the speed prior to the vehicle being parked was unknown. the current mileage was 400 and failure mileage was 25. the consumer stated the hood wiper jets weep when the vehicle is parked and the temperature rises above 200 leaving semi permanent marks on the vehicle. updated 08/31/07 *tr
VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

 Car hesitates when accelerator pedal is applied after coming to a stop or when attempting to pass other vehicles. especially frequent at turns from a complete stop eg turning into or across moving traffic. the car initially moves forward and then all forward movement stops. the engine does not appear to die the rpm's stay constant but the gas pedal has no effect and the car simply rolls to a stop at low speeds or slows up considerably at higher speeds. the result is that you are left either straddled across a couple of lanes of oncoming traffic if you tried to turn left or you are stalling in front of traffic traveling in the same direction as you or you are hung out to dry at higher speeds in the wrong lane of a two lane highway. it happens frequently but it does not happen constantly. you just never know when it is going to happen. it is extremely dangerous and the dealer says that all the minis are the same and that , that is just the way they handle. well it didn't handle like that when i got it and it only handles that way a few times a day. *jb

 Tl*the contact owns a 2007 mini cooper us. while attempting to make a right turn, the rear view mirror blocked his view and nearly caused a crash. the manufacturer advised him to notify the dealer. the dealer stated that they would not remove the rear view mirror due to circuits in the mirror that are used to operate the vehicle. the speed was unknown. the current mileage was 3,200 and failure mileage was 5.
