Reliability of the 2009 Mini Cooper r56
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 $$.
