What are some common problems with the MINI Cooper?
Ever since I saw that chase scene in The Italian Job with Mark Wahlberg, I’ve always wanted to own a MINI Cooper. I know they don’t make that particular model anymore, but used ones are surprisingly affordable. This makes me a bit apprehensive though. Are there any common problems with the MINI Cooper?
