2012 MINI Cooper Countryman Wagon 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 6M)
Having owned 2 other Mini's I expected high build quality, great power to weight ratio and above all stellar reliability.
What I got is this: so-so performance, a valve train that sounds like a handfull of bolts in a coffee can, and a trip to the dealer 20 miles away in limp home mode.
Add in the shrinking/peeling chrome along the belt line and the end caps on same that keep falling off in parking lots, and a 3 day stay in the shop and you have my Mini Countryman.
I am attempting to have Mini USA replace the vehicle. It is not what I expected or paid for.
