This third generation Mini matured, with more conventional controls and high-tech features. Still, the youthful exuberance and fun-to-drive character remained present. Improved ride and better noise isolation made it more palatable on a long drive and up to date connectivity was welcomed. Rest assured though, the frisky character and unmatched charm remained intact.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2014 Mini Cooper owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

In-car Electronics

CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.

What Owners Say

Backup or other camera/sensors

"Issue with programing, system was giving false warning of drive train failure. Fixed by program patch / upgrade at dealer transport and repair no charge"

Richard W., LA (2014 Mini Cooper S 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
External music device interface (e.g., smart phone, MP3 player)

"When you attempt to switch between playing music and podcasts, system will play one second of the podcast then stop, then you have to switch between play modes to get it to start again. System doesn't automatically transition between USB and bluetooth, you have to navigate through several menus to select each one. Radio stations favorites are difficult to set correctly. Overall system is unintuitive and difficult to use"

Anonymous, KS (2014 Mini Cooper S 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Playing music through the phone using USB interface, sometimes the music cuts off and there is no way to resume without disconnecting and reconnecting"

Keith F., CA (2014 Mini Cooper S 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
In-dash navigation system (GPS)

"Totally non intuitive, and inadequate directions - never tells you the name of the road you are turning on to, you must look at the screen and zoom in - dangerous"

Anonymous, NY (2014 Mini Cooper S 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"The voice guidance features are so poor and counterintuitive that I've stopped using it. For example, it does not tell the name of the street you are turning on to until you are about to turn. No notice is given. Almost all infotainment programming is dumb and counterintuitive - and I am very computer savvy. Can't see the manual to figure it out, because it's on the screen, and takes you away from whatever you're trying to program. A deal breaker when it comes to buying another of this car. My Audi, on the other hand, is very smartly configured."

Anonymous, NY (2014 Mini Cooper S 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Phone pairing (e.g., Bluetooth)

"Blue tooth requires hand manipulation of the screen to select a phone number. No voice commands are available. In addition, it does not always sync in with the phone"

Anonymous, CT (2014 Mini Cooper 1.5-L 3 Cyl turbo)
Radio

"As with the navigation system, the radio is stupidly programmed. Saving a station is totally counterintuitive and requires multiple steps and you can't see the instructions without leaving the radio to display the manual, in which case you can't program the radio. Everything electronic in this car is dumb. Our Audi, on the other hand, is brilliant."

Anonymous, NY (2014 Mini Cooper S 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"User controls extremely complicated and unable to be changed while driving"

Anonymous, RI (2014 Mini Cooper S 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Voice control commands

"Mini software does not fully interface w/ iOS, so I cannot use Siri, voice text, etc. while driving. Had I known, I would not have bought it"

Debbie K., CA (2014 Mini Cooper 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Bluetooth does not allow Siri to function. The bluetooth functionality is a stand alone interface that interferes with the phone functions so I don't use it. It is more of a distraction than a help"

Keith F., CA (2014 Mini Cooper S 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

Brakes

Antilock system (ABS), parking brake, master cylinder, calipers, rotors, pulsation or vibration, squeaking, brake failure or wear.

"Front pads wore out in 18000 miles"

Anonymous, OR (2014 Mini Cooper Base 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Front brakes were worn out at only 25,000 miles. Pads, rotors, and sensors all had to be replaced with mini not covering any cost under warranty"

Jim M., VA (2014 Mini Cooper Base)
Rotors

"Once the pads were replaced the dealer said that the rotors had. to be replaced also. It seemed to me that having to change factory pads and rotors at just 25000 miles was below par for any newer car."

Ramon T., NC (2014 Mini Cooper S 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

Took it in for an oil change and the Service Manager asked if they could have it for a few days and when I asked why they noted the recall, supplied a loaner and replaced the engine.

The B48A Engine is a very solid 2.0L platform."

John R., NY (2014 Mini Cooper S 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Mini identified a problem with manual transmissions. The issues resulted from a shifting mechanism; in which a bad part caused metal shavings to be expelled into the engine. My vehicle tested positive for this issue, therefore the only fix was a total engine replacement"

Anonymous, SC (2014 Mini Cooper S 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

Inappropriate air bag activation/deactivation can increase the risk of occupant injury in the event of a vehicle crash.
Summary:
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop 2 door vehicles manufactured February 25, 2014, to May 16, 2015, 2014-2015 MINI Cooper S Hardtop 2 door vehicles manufactured March 28, 2014, to May 9, 2015, 2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop 4 door vehicles manufactured October 17, 2014, to June 2, 2015, and 2015 MINI Cooper S Hardtop 4 door vehicles manufactured November 24, 2014, to June 11, 2015. During a service appointment, the affected vehicles received replacement front passenger seat cushions (which contain integral Capacitive Interior Sensing (CIS) functions). The CIS functions may have been incorrectly calibrated, and if so, would cause impaired occupant classification and thus inappropriate air bag activation/deactivation.
What should you do:
