2006 MINI Cooper 2dr Convertible (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Owned the Mini for 2.5 years; in that time, had an oil leak, brake problems, steering wheel problems, and a dead battery. Good thing it comes with warranty and full maintenance! It is a fun car to drive and people still gawk when seeing a Mini convertible. But, it is an extremely unreliable car and after awhile that does eat into the fun, even with free repairs and maintenance. Finally, traded it in for a not-so-fun but reliable and safe Subaru. If you are considering this car, make sure your Mini dealership is close to where you live, you'll be visiting it often!
Favorite Features
Look; styling; fun to drive
Suggested Improvements
Controls in odd places, low visibility in convertible, unreliable for a new (and expensive) car

Did you have any problems with the mechanics of the convertible? Any leaks? I'm interested in an 2004 - 2006 model and have found many where the issues you mentioned have already been dealt with. I am concerned about buying a used convertible and was wondering if you had anything to say about that detail?
