A Nightmare from Start to Finish
By Molly B on
Vehicle
2005 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)
Review
One good thing about my Mini - it's sexy and fun to drive. Well, that's two good things. And that's where the happy story ends. My Mini has had engine recalls, indicator lights fall out (left and right sides), 3 windshield cracks, radiator thermometers explode (twice), random signal lights signaling (i.e. flat tire, check gas cap, service engine) for years on end ("bad computer circuitry"), oil pan leaks, emissions tubes cracked, the metal decal on my steering wheel pop up (twice. who knew that the entire steering wheel has to be replaced when that happens), vanity mirror covers fly off their hinge, battery failures, and more - but I've run out of room. In short, my Mini's been a nightmare.
Favorite Features
It's a good looking car - too bad the performance hasn't lived up to the appeal.
Suggested Improvements
How's about a car that works and doesn't cost loads of money to fix? i.e. $3K in the past 2 months to 'fix' random indicator lights saying "check gas cap" and "service engine soon" (these lights are still on after being "fixed"), full tire replacement, rear break replacement, and random car stalling
