How many miles do Mini Coopers last?

After researching used Mini Coopers, I think I’ve found one I want to buy–at a great price too! It does have 75,000 miles on it already so I was curious how much longer it should last?

Mini Coopers
have been known to last anywhere from 150,000 to 250,000 miles, but this all depends on how the vehicle was cared for by its previous owner.
Mini Coopers can last a long time, but they have been known to encounter some finicky (yet fixable) problems with age if they have not been properly maintained.
Here are some common issues that can occur with a Mini Cooper:
  • Movement in timing chain (creates noise and vibration)
  • Electric power steering pump failure
  • Radiator coolant hose leaks
  • Clutch failure
  • Transmission problems
Pro tip: Whenever you purchase a used vehicle, it’s important to receive a copy of the maintenance history. It might also be worth obtaining a copy before making a purchase and reviewing it with your trusted mechanic.
