MINI 2008 Cooper S Hatchback

Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

In their own words

Firstly my mini was a Cooper and not an S. Also it was a 2011 on a 61 plate. Pimlico, blue with white roof and mirrors. No stupid bonnet stripes. Good funky little car to own. Parts wernt to expensive. Although air conditioning pump came in at a hefty 1200.00 but warranty picked up that tab. So check for noisy bearing on the pump. Our mini started getting electronic gremlins. Rear fog lamp faulty. Indicators stopped flashing 3 times when stalk touched. Stop/start stopped working. And other warning lights came on and off then they pleased. But didn't affect the driving of the vehicle. Our mini had been from Aberdeen to Reading twice. And Glasgow Ikia at least 3 times with never a beat missed. Was sad to see it go but we out grew it and due to medical issues also.

How reliable do you find the car?

Air conditioner pump fail. Warranty replaced. Replaced rear break pads. Replaced water thermostat housing and wiring loom conversion.

Does the car do everything you expected it to do?

Bloody brilliant little car to drive. Like a go cart lots of fun.
