2011 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This model was known to be only marginally reliable but has been exceeded my expectations. Repairs have been limited to a few recall issues. Around town mileage has been steady at 30.1 which, I believe, is better than the EPA estimate. My only complaint has been the gearbox design. Lack of a reverse lockout means that quick 3/2 downshifts require extreme care.
