2010 MINI Cooper Clubman Hatchback 3dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 6M)


Review

With the non-turbo and manual 6 speed it is a fun little car in the twisties, enough umph to take the up hill curves. For us it was a grocery getter but the grocery store was 15 miles up and down country two lanes, ideal driving for this car. If you are in town, get an automatic and turbo, non turbo with auto is under-powered. If you're young and limber it is fine for road trips, if you a bit beyond middle age get something a bit bigger and easier to get in and out of.

2010 MINI Cooper Clubman Hatchback S 3dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Fast and fun car to drive around town. Very noisy on highway driving. My biggest problem is the repairs. Anything and everything that can go wrong with this car has gone wrong. Electronic shifter, rear door release went out after a car wash, thermostat, water pump, water pump discharge pipe, drive belt, seat belt module, hood latches, timing chain tensioner, valve cover gasket, vacuum seal. The crazy thing is you can find videos or instructions on how to fix all of these items yourself. That's because so many people have these problems and don't want to pay the ridiculous Mini Cooper repair costs. BMW engineer combined with British craftsmanship equals a car that breaks down a lot and costs an arm and a leg to repair.

Review

Owned this car for over two years. Have had some repairs but once you figure out you can buy these parts yourself and repair them... you will reduce your headaches! Oil changes and brakes can be done yourself for minimal cost. Excellent gas mikage. Typically on freeway 40+ mph. You will find each mini has its own gremlins. Mine will ONLY take certain types of gas or she gets very upset! They all have their quirky personalities but overall a joy to drive. Mine makes regular Costco trips packs 6 foot football players and gear and my 6 ft husband loves to drive it and has plenty of headroom. Overall very happy with mine.

Review

We bought a 2010 Clubman new. It was blast to drive and everything went well until the warranty expired. Car developed a couple of coolant leaks and $4,000 and two days later we were back on the road. The Clubman is actually comfortable for four and we have taken several roadtrips without complaints. With the manual ( very nice 6 spd) we can get as high as 39 miles to the gallon. We ordered the upgraded stereo and it is worth it. Bottom line is that the car is very fun, and cute. I would recommend buying the extended maintenance plan - it is a bitter pill but can save you lots of money down the road. A Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla will be more reliable but styling is terrible - absolutely neutral.

Review

Got a used 2010 clubman. 65,000 miles on it. After 3 months engine develops a vacume leak. After my mechanic examined the engine, I see plastic parts attached to the engine??? Exhaust manifold had a stripped screw that was glued back in place??? $485 for a new plastic exhaust manifold. I was told BMW's have plastic parts as well. I go to wash the car and find a crack in the windshield that started on the top edge?? Dealer wants $800+ to replace. Found a mobile windshield company to replace for $230. Will sell when it reaches 85,000 miles. No more German cars for me.
