Question about 2002 Mini Cooper
Hi..my mini cooper with 61 k on clock takes a very long time to get moving.Motor seems normal in neutral but in drive etc will not rev very high and takes forever to get momentum up.
Could the transmission be worn out?

I have experienced this problem. It behaved as if the gearbox is "stuck" in top gear, and happened when the gearbox was overdue for a fluid change and after I'd given it some fast getaways. It sorted itself out with a few minutes of gentle driving, and has not re-appeared since having the fluid changed.
Opinion: drive chain stuck in narrow part of one of the pulleys in the gearbox.
Recommendation: get the fluid changed before considering anything more expensive. Hope this helps.
