Yesterday, I received a letter from MINI giving details of the "Front passenger seat occupant detection mat sensor" recall. The letter informs me that I am to contact an authorised MINI dealer to make an appointment to have this fixed. Now here is my problem. I live out in the boonies of NW Ohio. My nearest MINI dealers are in Columbus, Detroit or Cleveland. That means that I have a minimum of a 4 1/2 hour round trip to Detroit, plus time to have the repair done. This would mean wasting a vacation day to have the work done, or blowing a day off work (my CFO says that she is not happy with this option). Does anyone know if a BMW dealer could do this work?
