Agree. I love to drive it but it's in the shop all the time. I purchased my 2007 MINI COOPER S new in Dec 2007.the car has just passed the warranty period & yet another problem occurred that is not covered under warranty. I cannot continue to I make monthly payments & pay for repairs too so have decided to search for a new car and trade this one in. Since I purchased it the driver's side door locking mechanism fell apart, the tensioner has been replaced 2 times, the timing chain replaced, the water pump replaced, the air intake hose & clamps replaced , & the air conditioner fan motor replaced. It eats oil - I have to put 1 qrt of synthetic oil in it every 2500 miles between regularly scheduled oil changes. When the temp gets above 95 degrees F the sun roof will not open until the inside of the car cools down. All 4 tires have been replaced. 2 at a time @ $625 per set. Unfortunately it's just too unreliable. This last time I was stranded & had to call Roadside assistance. btw - roadside assistance only lasts 4 years & if you get the Cooper S you do not have a spare tire.....something to keep in mind.Report it
