Mini Hardtop Lemon Odds and Nada Odds
Other sources of Mini Hardtop reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Mini Hardtops with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Mini Hardtops that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.
These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Mini Hardtop lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Mini Hardtop has been recently.

Mini Hardtop Lemon Odds and Nada Odds for the Year Ending Mar. 31, 2014
That said, the Lemon Odds figures are probably much lower than many people suspected, so we've posted them. Similarly, the Nada Odds are probably higher than many people suspected. Even with the least reliable cars in this results set your odds of no repairs would be better than one in three. Surprised? MethodologyThe samples include cars for which we have at least nine months of data in the past year. The "Nada-odds" are adjusted based on the average number of months of data per car. These stats are very close to what they'd be if we included only cars with a full year of data.
Only successfully completed repairs are currently included in the analysis. Recalls and problems fixed with just a reflash or warning light reset are not included.
An asterisk (*) marks results based on small sample sizes.
