MINI USA Delaying all Cooper Deliveries Due to DefectMINIUSA is holding all Cooper deliveries ahead of the 4/15 launch date due to a oil filter housing problem. We reported the news, courtesy of several sources, via Instagram, Twitter and Facebook yesterday but held-off reporting it on MF in order to confirm the details. According to sources the issue only affects the F56 Cooper and not the Cooper S as some rumors had us believe.
The delay shouldn’t last long as the revised part is expected in the US and at dealers within a week or two. That means those waiting for for a delivery of a MINI Cooper around the launch date likely won’t have to wait longer than a few extra days.
