PostSubject: Cracked Speedometer   21st August 2013, 21:21

My neighbour's daughter has a Mini One which is only a few months old and has developed a strange fault.

The speedo glass has cracked from the top....almost as if when it was fitted there wasn't a sufficient gap for it to expand.....

Anyway, she returned the car to Stratstone Mini Derby who, to be fair, lent her another Mini whilst they looked at the problem.

Today she returned the loan car only to be told that the cracked glass was not covered under her warranty and would cost £600!

WTF.......how can that amount be justified when the car is only a few months old?

Has anyone else here heard of this problem?

I think she needs to take the matter up with MINI directly, and failing that refer it to Trading Standards or take some other action.
