Do Not Ever Buy a Mini
By rc_rasmussen on
Vehicle2007 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 6M)
ReviewWhat a fun car to drive!! What a horrible car to own!! I've had nothing but maintenance issues with my mini. It's too bad really, cuz I was such a huge fan for the first 2yrs I owned the car. Since then though, never again. I've had all the same issues with the timing chain and tensioner, up to the climax when I was told I would need a new engine at 86k miles. Cost 8000$. Mini agreed to help pay for 0!! I'm now at 98k and the engine has started to seize. I was extremely dilligent in maintenance. Other issues include airbag sensors breaking, replacing a water pump at 52k - cost : 1400$. The kicker - I just finished paying it off 3 months ago.... Save yourself the 24k$
Best FeaturesThe drive
Worst FeaturesThe entire drivetrain or lengthen the service plan to 100k miles. Give me my 24k back.... or part of it....
