are mini coopers durable?
No, do you see how fast I answered your question. Actually, look at places like Consumers Reports and you'll see that they have a higher than average frequency of repairs, not good. Also try True Delta. Now, having said that, are they supposed to be fun to drive, apparently yes. So, make your choice. For me, I'd rather feel good than look good.
They have a real problems with major issues.......motors,transmis sions and tubo's......I would pass on anything but a brand new with bumper to bumper warranty
