Too expensive to maintain

2009 MINI Cooper

I would not recommend this make or model. It's incredibly fun to drive, but the maintenance costs far exceed the enjoyment. BMW likes to profit from maintenance costs. During the seven years I owned mine, it cost aprox. $14,000 in maintenance and repairs, for things that didn't happen on other makes I've owned. Struts, leaking thermostat, idler arm leakage, valve cover gasket, water pump, brakes, brakes and more brakes, battery, air conditioning, tires are a expensive, they lasted less than 38,000km from new, with replacement cost approaching $1,700. Even the sun visor broke. Enjoy the ride, but be wary of repair costs.

Reliability of the 2009 Mini Cooper r56

2009 MINI Cooper

Small yet spacious car. It really has a vintage, race car feeling on the inside of the car which really adds character. My car was used as a track car to race, so it has been more unreliable than other mini coopers but these cars have also been very well known to be unreliable. In the (less than) 6 months I've owned the now, 85,000 mile car, I've had an engine replacement, clutch replacement, and battery replacement. All those had failed which led to the replacement. I currently have worn down brake pads and an exhaust temperature problem which I need to get around to as soon as I have $$.

A cool car that helps to make you feel good.

2009 MINI Cooper

I love how it feels driving. It feels like a sports car. It has quick acceleration on wet or dry surfaces. Speed drops immediately when foot lets up on gas which is very helpful when exceeding speed limit. Gets awesome gas mileage. I feel safe in bad weather because it is a solidly made car with the same concentration in its weight as other vehicles made by BMW. It makes me feel good when driving.
