This time it is a group of Florida plaintiffs that are getting together to file a class action lawsuit against the BMW Mini Cooper. The lawsuit is due to reliability issues in the Continuously Variable Transmissions specifically for the first generation Cooper hatchbacks made in 2002 through 2006, and in the convertibles made in 2006 through 2008.
Complaints about this issue have been coming in from all over the place about Mini owners experiencing the same sudden CVT failure, and being frustrated at how Mini dealers are handling, or should we say not handling the situation, leaving owners with unresolved issues and not happy campers at all. Last year it was a group from California that formed a class action lawsuit against Mini for the exact same reasons. The California legal action known as "Brad Aarons V. BMW of North America, LLC" was to seek restitution, damages and other relief for the included plaintiffs who had to spend between $6,000 to $9,000 to have their CVTs repaired or replaced. This is a third to a half of the original purchase price for the Minis and some owners couldn't afford the repairs and had to sell their vehicles, suffering major losses.
The premature transmission failure is the same reason Florida is forming their own lawsuit against BMW of North America. More specifically, and very similar to the California lawsuit, the U.S. District Court in Miami has received the filing that alleges BMW violated the state's Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act. It affects 2002-2006 hardtop Mini Cooper versions and 2005-2008 Mini Cooper convertible versions.
