Any experience with Mini Cooper S? Looking at a 2015 for Mrs. Powerhouse.

We have driven one once, but never owned one. Looks like reliability history average or a little better. Limited research tells me the regular Cooper a little more reliable than the S, but when we drove both we felt the Turbo (S) was pretty important as the regular Cooper seemed a little sluggish 50 to 70, though pretty quick from 0.

Note - We are looking at a convertible. Just realized convertible redesigned in 2016, but hardtop redesigned 3rd gen came out in 2015, so this 2015 convertible would be more like 2008 - 2014 hardtops it appears.

Thanks in Advance!

  That sounds like a fairly easy issue to root out -- typed by ben 11/18/2019 2:38PM
