What is the reliability of a 2010 mini cooper hardtop? Any specific or reoccuring mechanical issues? The vehicle I'm considering only has 20,000 miles on it.

They are made by BMW so the quality is good. And they are a blast to drive. Is it the super charged model?


It is NOT the supercharged model. It has the Mayfair package. Only has until Jan of 16 on the extended warranty.


20K on the clock and 6 months left on the warranty? How can you go wrong?
