I bought a brand new 2017 Mini Cooper S Convertible in June of 2017. Within 3 months, I had an issue with the clutch, a small pin ended up getting dislodged and needed to be repaired which was covered. A couple of months later the AC in my car wasn’t working and as a result of the previous incident. After that, I had issues with my car engine automatically shutting off the way it normally should at a stoplight. However, it would do this when my foot was pressed down on the clutch and I was in gear. It happened now 5 times but the first 4 happened before my warranty was up. They “fixed it” 3 times but once they couldn’t “recreate” it so they never did anything. The first 3 times it happened, one of those was the one they couldn’t “recreate” was before 18,000 miles. It has done this auto shut off while I’m the process of making a turn off of a busy roadway, and most often it happens right once the car is started and I’m backing out of my driveway or about to drive off my street. It is now happening yet again and has done it now 3 times in the past 5 days.
I’m wondering if it would still fall under lemon laws in NJ since the 18,000 miles expired before the 4th occurrence and because they couldn’t “recreate” the issue so that 3rd time isn’t on paper as ever having been repaired. I’m stuck paying for a new car that is in the shop more often than I get to drive it.
