Cons outweigh the Pros

Vehicle2003 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI purchased this car used in 2007 and I didn't even get 5000 miles on it before the clutch went out on it the first time. Six months after that replacement, I had to have it back in the shop because the clutch pedal had a master/slave issue and I had to have the cylinders replaced. Then, just this past week, after approximately 21 months and 9,000 more miles on the car, I had to have the clutch replaced again. Seriously, while the car looks really cool and is sometimes fun to drive, it is *not* worth all the extra money it will cost you for ownership. I can't wait to pay this thing off and go back to driving a VW again.
Best FeaturesExterior look and paint color (velvet red).
Worst FeaturesMake the parts reliable and more affordable. And focus on creating a loyal customer base by building reliable cars instead of treating us (consumers) as expendable commodities by telling us we're all bad drivers (their excuse for the multiple clutch failures).
