Hi.

Does anyone own/drive a 2015 Cooper D Automatic? How does it do?

I am thinking of getting one but a test drive has not been available with the automatic transmission. I have tried the manual, and automatic in a different model.

Thanks!

Hi, I have a Cooper, but petrol not diesel, and like some aspects of the automatic transmission but not all. It is very smooth changing up and down from/to the second gear, but sometimes produces a slight jolt or lunge when it changes from first to second. When breaking and coming to a standstill the engine never disengages, which means you are fighting against the engine, making a completely smooth stop almost impossible. I didn't pick these things up during test drives, which is why I thought it would be worth pointing this out. I would expect these characteristics to be the same with the Cooper D. Despite these niggles, I like the automatic and would buy it again.
