Years with issues

Hey all Im shopping around for a Clubman, and I was wondering if you could recommend any years to stay away from or years to buy.

From what I can tell the two of the big issues with the Minis is the "death rattle" and the "super knock". Has either of these been resolved in any of the new releases?

Also is there anything in particular that I should be looking for when shopping around for a Mini?


Thanks,

Nick

If you're looking for a Cooper S you want a 2011 or later model as these have the N18 engine rather than the N14 which had quite a few problems.

I dont know why I didnt include that, but yes it would be for a Clubman S. Want that extra boost of power .

Thanks for the info, thats a good place for me to start it out.

I'm fairly new to the Mini world but the longer I'm on these forums I'm getting the idea that any Mini with an S in it's designation can be a potential problem.
