Why the 2009 Mini Hardtop?

Why Not the 2009 Mini Hardtop?

Reliability & durability

60k miles and I'm looking for a new car. Love the car but it can't go woot constant repairs. 2 timing chain repairs fuel pressure pump, carbon buildup, clutch replacement, nav DVD drive.

Warranty, maintenance cost

Slave to the car's maintenance computer. At first it is nice to not have to take it in for much but once the trips are out of synch you have to take it in often for little things instead of dealer combining service together for less trips.

Dealer practices

Down right predatory pricing for repairs. BMW won't fix a MINI but the price is the same.

Materials & workmanship

Lots of rattles even driving it off the lot brand new

Ride smoothness

Comes with the good handling but standard run flat tires are TERRIBLE with road noise and smoothness.
