Bought this car used and the original battery was never changed out. Took it to an independent shop rather than the dealer to have it fixed and to have them give it a look over as I didn't quite trust the dealer at that point. Battery replaced, car is fine Driving in bumper to bumper traffic I noticed a warning light lit and it was the cooling system. I had been warned about stopping immediately if the light came on as it could mean having to buy a new engine. The radiator fan died and in traffic consequently the engine overheated since there was no ambient airflow over the radiator. Complained to the dealer that the car was just over a month old and the even if it wasn't certified, that they should replace it as they are a premiere MINI/BMW dealer in Honolulu. They agreed and all has been good since then.
