They have no date but told me it's a software fix. I expected a few issues with the launch of a complete new vehicle. I have already had a number of recalls but that's not so bad. As long as they get my tele services working
If they are telling you this then you have to ask them to put it in writing - that it's not just a guess
Also ask them this, it is therefore an issue with all of the emergency systems? - so legally they have to tell people who are ordering it that it's faulty doesn't work properly and a software issue will fix it - correct?
If they do not give you a date tell them what are your rights if you are not happy - because logically something else might go wrong and then you're stuck with the car that you've paid for that you could forseebly not be happy with.
It's a con - I'll give you an example - the problem in my audi was supposedly a software fix which took over 6 months - I fell for something that created a bigger problem for me - at the end the whole system I had (blind spot monitoring) was fully corrupt and it had to be changed altogether 15 months down the line with lies and more lies on Audi's behalf.
Therefore tell Mini that if it's a problem and you are legally declaring it to all customers who are speccing up the e services that it's faulty and they are willing to go on record done.
If not tell them the car is under warranty and you want a replacement - or to prove it to you without doubt with diagnostics that it is what they think it is or say it is.
Don't be afraid to tell them they get away with way too much.
