The Jury is Out
By Buffaloe on
2009 MINI Cooper Clubman S 3dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
While I am very pleased to date with my Clubby, the potential for issues associated with build quality, durability, maintenance intervals, etc make me wonder about the future. Given the Clubby is under warranty but when I learn that brake replacement can approach $1K or higher, that concerns me. IMO, the whole MINI culture/concept not only includes the original purchase price but also the ongoing highly expensive maintenance. I will watch these reviews closely as the 2008 Clubby lose warranty coverage.
Looks and rear door entry.
Armrest & regular tires (those run flats are very hard).
