TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Mini Hardtop

2015 Mini Hardtop Reliability And Durability: Neutral
YearComment
2015 The Mini Hardtop, the VW GTI, and the Ford Fiesta all have been the subject of more than their fair share of owner horror stories. At this point, all three models are too new to know how they'll hold up in the long run. As I write this, though, the 2015 GTI is better than average, the 2014-2015 Hardtop is about average, and the 2014 Fiesta is somewhat worse than average (we don't have enough participants for the 2015). full 2015 Mini Hardtop review
