2009 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

After owning a 2006 cooper I took the plunge and "upgraded" to a 2009 Cooper S. This is one of the biggest car-buying mistakes I have ever made! It has only 40,000 miles on it and has already been towed 3 times, had carbon buildup in the engine, a new clutch and flywheel (beware this costs over $2000), a new timing chain, tensioner, rails, and gears, and the list goes on! I will never buy another mini and plan to get rid of this one as quickly as possible

Favorite Features

It's got great styling and can be fun to drive when it is running properly.

Suggested Improvements

Mini should really revisit the 2006 model specs. I never had a problem with my last cooper.
