    i also notice that, the odometer show " EP " last few days....but it only show no more then a minutes....i read the forum , say it is about the CVT problem (again, CVT ) ...is it relate to about electronic problem ??

    :cornut: Your problem is beyond my knowledge. Since it's a 2012 MINI, it should still be under warranty so I'd take it to the dealership tomorrow. One thing though, very strange things like this can happen with a bad battery but that should still be under warranty also.:Thumbsup:
