Parts are VERY expensive. Had two quotes for accessories and found franchised dealer prices were 3-5 times more than other suppliers. ``as for fuel, an electric MINI would be an interesting model.

No major problems, just a problem with the electric window. Also, erratic handling over bumps but dealers states that is is just a characteristic of the car.

For the price and considering the badge the build quality, especially inside the car is poor! Runflat tyres also make for a very harsh ride - especially over pot-holes.

My car is amazing to drive and cannot be compared with any other car for the fun factor. However, the number and serious extent of the problems that i have had with the car is unforgiveable. The engine required a full strip down after oil went into the inlet, the rear door required a new switching mechanism, the radio had to be replaced, the windscreen and headlamp washers have jammed, and there have been countless rattles requiring the dash top to be replaced, the door card to be padded and a rear airbag to be screwed back on! Not good as the car is less than 18months old and only has 14k on the clock.

Just a few quick thoughts about living with the ‘MINI experience’ for anyone else looking at getting a MINI. I purchased a Clubman Cooper S for over £20,000 back in late 2008. At first all was well, I enjoyed driving the car and it put a smile on my face. The handling, the willing free revving engine, the styling, all good. Then the little squeaks and rattles started. The cam chain tensioner was replaced under warranty, then an item of plastic panelling failed and again was replaced under warranty. This was OK as you expect a few problems but the main problem on this particular model was the R98 web spoke wheels. The reason for this statement is that after just one winter I noticed corrosion on all four of the wheels. I was fastidious about keeping these wheels clean and only used warm soapy water and no chemicals. These wheels were replaced under warranty in the spring. My local dealer mentioned this doesn’t happen very often and appeared surprised. But the surprise is that the same thing is happening again the following winter! The replacement wheels were less than 10 months old and were corroding again – this time on only three wheels. I mentioned to the local dealer that Id like to swap these for a different set of alloy wheels that don’t corrode but they said that I was just ‘unlucky’, and would only be able to offer a ‘like for like’ replacement . Not to be perturbed, and I do like minis and MINIs, I swapped my PSA engined Cooper S for a 60 plate BMW engined Cooper D Clubman. Again really nice to drive and quite a punchy little engine, good for B roads and motorways, but really cheap to run (giving just over a real 50 mpg on steady motorway trips) and only £20 per year tax. The diesel engine was surprisingly smooth and free reving, I was really impressed. Unfortunately, the fly in this ointment was the reliability of the BMW engine, which was a surprise. With less than 20 thousand miles on the clock the turbo failed. This was replaced under warranty and everyone at the dealership was quite surprised and explained that this type of failure hardy ever happens. I was getting quite used to seeing the dealer at this point as I had been to see them 3 times in the previous 10 months as there were diesel fumes coming into the cabin when driving – this was fixed at the third visit and all was well. Then not long after that the DPF failed and again was replaced under warranty. Then the suspension started squeaking which I just got used to. Then a few months short of the warranty finishing the turbo failed again, 20 thousand miles after the last one!! The dealership has been good and has always been able to give me a loan car when asked. I have now got to 90 thousand miles and the dreaded ‘death rattle’ has materialised. The AA was called out and confirmed cam chain issues. It was taken to a local specialist who diagnosed the same issue and added if I hadn’t addressed this when I did the engine would have been a right off. It was also noted that the dual mass flywheel was nearing the end of its life. On balance it may have not been worth getting the work done to fix these problems – so several thousand pounds out of pocket the MINI was back on the road. The cam chain really needs replacing way way before the recommended replacement interval. At this point I decided to sell it before something else failed spectacularly… But in my personal experience the BMW engine has got a reliability issue, and personally I wouldn’t rate it highly in that area. Ive owned six minis/MINIS (4 of them proper minis) over the years and although the BMW MINI is in no way related to the original, it does try to capture some of the driving fun. However, there are now quite a few models on the market which provide the same if not more levels of driving enjoyment for the money. On a personal level I wouldn’t buy another BMW - which is ‘perceived’ as a premium brand.

The car has been fine overall, apart from the timing chain needed replacing not long after I had it (done without fuss at Stratstone MINI Derby!) plus a little thirst for oil every 1000 or so miles! Apart from that it has been great!

Running costs are fine overall, fuel costs are what I expect, considering it is a Cooper S. But road tax and insurance are spot on.

Bought 2 years ago when the vehicle was 4 years old and started to have gearbox problems within 6 months, first clutch plate replaced after it failed when driving on motorway in dark, then clutch cylinder failed six months later when driving in dark in rural area. Today gearbox failed on motorway. All failures had high potential to cause accidents as caused catastrophic transmission failure and were unexpected, no prior indication of defect. Car driven for normal commuter use. I do not recommend this vehicle to anyone. Not reliable, potentially dangerous, don't waste your money on one.

Owned my car since January when it was a 2000 mile demo. Has now covered a further 18,000+ trouble free miles. The only qualm is that the sports seats aren't overly comfortable. I have the new Cooper D on order and the seats appear to be much more supportive (I am 6' tall). The only fault was the need for the passenger door seal to be replaced as it let in water if the car was pressure washed.

Excellent performance, brilliant handling. Refinement and build quality not as good as i expected from a bmw-owned company (mini). Fit to parts of the dash not great (speedo rattle) and dab radio not connected at factory requiring dealer repair. Dealer service very good but glad work has been done under warranty! Criminal that i had to pay £43 for the ipod connecting lead on a £20,000 car. Overall a fun and fast car but regret paying £20,000+ for a mini and should have bought the diesel.

The car has always, started and performed as new

Fuel consumption is good for a 1600 petrol engine as I often drive 'enthusiastically'. The car has had one service under the TLC service package (Ł245) that saved Ł40 on this srervice and still covers the next service.

Fantastic car. I tried lots of other cars before buying another mini and nothing else can touch it for driving dynamics, comfort and running costs.

It's the best car i've ever had-it is so practical with loads of space, fairly comfortable on long journeys, very economical, fast with incredible road holding and stylish-what more could you ask for?

Very reliable and, whilst not as much fun as the cooper i had previously, it is still fun to drive.

More practical than the mini hatch, every journey is an opportunity to smile. The handling is excellent but a bit more oomph would have been welcome. The main advantage of the cooper over the more powerful s is the significant reduction in insurance costs. It's a pity that the club door couldn't have been engineered to be either on the correct side or both.
