I'm looking at purchasing a 2007 Mini Cooper S automatic with 31000 miles. I've read several negative reviews and comments. Should I run away or purchase? It would be a second car for fun.
I'd avoid it...According to Consumer Reports, there were problems with the 2007 Mini Cooper is the following areas: Engine Cooling, Fuel System and with Minor Engine components. The 2012 model seems to be the only year so far that has shown improvements across the board for this car since it was introduced in 2003.
I recommend you also stay away from the S MINI. If you do want a MINI get the non S a lot less problems. MINI S have issues with water pumps, timing chains, carbon build up on intake valves.
