Great car when its great!
Fun, responsive, sophisticated "head turner" most of the time. BUT when things go bad, "oh my golly"... Everybody needs to review owners comments on the online forums about MINI problems. Finally just this week NHTSB got MINI to acknowledge ONE of many build failures and force corrective action of a recall by MINI. My Mini is going to experience too many problems as it ages. Good thing I have extended the protection plan for as long as possible, because gonna keep it for now.
