Should I buy this 2004 Mini Cooper (CTV)? Please help
Hello to all
My roomate is about to sell her mini cooper 2004 (the base model Automatic) to a local dealer at $5000 (CAD). The car is currently 97500 km (about 60 k miles), but still has extended warranty up to oct 2014. She agreed to sell it to me at the same price. I tried to drive her car which is currently in a very good condition, and the brakes and tires are like 95% new. I totally love it!
My roomate's mini has definitely maintained very well. However, I have done some research about the first generation mini coopers' reliability. It was said the car may have a major transmission failure around this mileage. Does that happen to all eventually? Should I buy it or not? Please give me some suggestions.
