25,000 mile engine

First of all, I bought the car brand new, knowing that I would put a lot of miles on it. The warranty seemed perfectly acceptable and we were very happy with the purchase. We put about 25,000 miles on this car in one year and we only brought it in for oil changes and recall repairs. So far, so good. The car handles well, gets good MPG, and does what we expect it to do. Then, the car broke down while my wife was driving through town, on her way home from work. The dealer took about one week to diagnose the problem, claiming the service department was short-handed. The following week, I was told that the turbo charger would need to be replaced, and when I checked in two days later, the engine also needed to be replaced. I have owned several new cars, and I have never had a problem with the engine in the first year of driving. In fact, I have never had engine problems within the first 100,000 miles of any engine. Naturally, I was concerned. I asked about replacement parts, and of course, the exact same OEM parts that had failed already were being installed. I tell them that's fine, but I would like to have an extended warranty so that these new parts, including the engine, would be covered for longer in case the same problem repeats. This was also denied. I have spoken to MINI USA several times, and there is nothing they will do that is not already covered. Please understand, the car is well within warranty and I have incurred no additional cost. Not yet, anyway. However, the car has been in the shop for three weeks now, and counting. Getting an extended warranty is pointless now, because I will be unloading this car at my earliest opportunity. I will replace my MINI with a reliable car, and never consider purchasing another in the future.

The MINI is by far one of the most unique cars available. The interior is like nothing else out there. The design options are endless and you can truly make it your own. I do recommend a manual transmission if you really want to "motor hard" as the display says when you put it in sport mode. I've owned both and the 6 speed takes this pocket rocket to the next level. Test drive one and you'll be hooked. It just looks fun and is fun.

I love my mini but she comes with some problems

I’m at the tail end of driving my mini as I just traded it in at 109,000 miles. She’s a great little car and can still whip when in sport mode. It’s comfortable and has as many bells and whistles a 2014 can have. At 45,000 miles the coils packs started having to be replaced at least every 10,000 miles. Once the problem was diagnosed it was easy to catch early but can be pricey if you don’t do the work your self. Overall this was a great reliable ride for a while and super fun to drive. The cost of keeping it running after 100,000 is just a bit too expensive. Time for a more reasonable car.
