Question Mini One Automatic - 22nd August 2017, 08:36 AM

Hi everyone

I have recently bought a 2009 1.4 litre Mini One Automatic (from a reputable Mini dealership) and need some advice as to whether there is a problem with the automatic transmission.

I have driven automatic Minis before and have never noticed the gears changing. However, this 1.4 Mini One seems to do a little surge every time the gear changes. Has anyone else had this experience and should I be worried about it?

Thanks

Sonnybee

Hello

I had a 2010 60 reg black MINI Cooper Auto which had low miles for about three months back in 2013 and like you I didn't like the gearbox I thought it wasn't smooth enough.
I changed the car a few months later. However my dad loved it and didn't find it a problem.

How many miles has it done?

If I was you give the dealer a phone tell them your worried about it I'm pretty sure if they are a decent dealer they will say come in and they will give it a test drive to see if all is ok.


Now:F56 MINI Dooper MidnightBlack (Chili, Full White leather, Connected XL Nav, adaptive dampers, heated seats, HUD, Harmon Kardon speakers, black alloys)
Before:F56 MINI Dooper IcedChoc (Chili,VisualBoost,Leather)
Before: R56 MINI Cooper Lightning Blue (Chili,half leather)
Before :R50 MINI One Moonlight Black (Pepper)
+ 2 Audi TT MK2s in between.

Hi. Thanks for your reply. The car has only done 35000 miles so not bad for a 2009.

It just seems lumpy compared with my last Mini. That was a 2005 1.6 Cooper automatic in electric blue which I loved. A few weeks ago, an idiot paying more attention to his mobile phone than the road wrote it off in a head on collision. Gutted.

I can't understand why a 2005 car had a smooth gear change whereas the 2009 hasn't. Maybe it's the difference between a 1.6 Cooper and a 1.4 One??

Completely different engine and car as the 2009 is a 2nd gen Mini and the 2005 was the first generation and yes the One will be slower than the Cooper.

I'm sure as you get used to the car you won't notice it so much and love it as much as your last MINI!

And yeah 35k is nothing. I guess you could get the gearbox oil changed (not too clued up on this to be honest) to put your mind at rest.
