Vehicle2003 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewLike many others, I have had nothing but problems since I purchased this car used 3 years ago.
When I got it I seemed to be in ok condition even after 2 previous owners and 140k.
Starting in the 2nd month of ownership I began having to replace things--each time a cost of $500-$600 mainly due to the high price of the parts.
Every time I fix something, I have another problem.
I am planning to get a new car once I can afford a monthly payment seeing as I have never gone over 6 months without some type of expensive maintenance.
Great car in its younger years--definitely not a primary vehicle or one that will hold up over the years.

what parts did you end up replacing once you reached 140k miles? I have found most cars at 100k or more miles things start breaking down and needing replacement no matter what you have. Have you tried looking for parts online instead of OEM high prices?Report it
