2012 Mini Cooper Countryman Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mini's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mini tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Cooper Countryman’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Cooper Countryman's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Mini Cooper Countryman transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Mini's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can my Mini Cooper Countryman leak transmission fluid? Yes, your Mini Cooper Countryman can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your Cooper Countryman ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues.
