Failed at only 23,000 miles

2006 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Driving the Mini Cooper was fun. I think everyone already knows this. Ownership wasn't so fun. The trim around the windows is poorly done, I was going on my 3rd windshield due to previous windshields cracking and the main computer command board failed. It could no longer tell the automatic transmission what to do. At only 23,000 miles! Not good. I got rid of it. Oh, the dealership claimed the car wasn't wired properly either. On the 4th visit? Yikes!

Best Features

Gas mileage of course. Paint was very good-a glittery blue. Heated seats! Handling.

Worst Features

Windshields, somehow body flexing caused cracking, trim around body of car and surrounding windshield needs to be made more sturdy. Inside of car seems cheesy and cheap.
