MINI Cooper: Reliability & Maintenance Costs
My wife and I test drove the 2007 VW Rabbit and 06 Mini Cooper over the weekend -- each had a very solid and stable feel. Still think the mini is a little bit small for luggage and other stuff (any experiences?) but the gas mileage is better than the Rabbit.
What has your experience on up keep been like? How expensive are brakes for instance? 15k, 30k, 60k Check ups?
When have the little guys started needing repairs?
I realize its going to differ somewhat but I would like to get an idea if the mini is nothing more than an expensive to repair BMW in disguise.
So come'on! Talk me into one.
Appreciate it. I'm interested, my wife thinks I'll get creamed by an SUV.
