Advice Purchase 2012 Countryman Turbo
I am about to purchase a Mini 2012 Countryman Turbo 6 speed with 39,000 miles for $12,980. Owner has been very good with keeping all records and having the car only serviced at Mini dealerships.
Only issue was that there was a fluid leak in the engine, Passenger side axle seal was replaced, all fluid was removed and replaced, cleaned out residue and operating fine. And replaced micro filter.
I was really nervous test driving as this is my first time purchasing a car from a private party. He also got the car smogged too as that is the law in CA before transferring and he even offered to have me wait one day for my husband to look at the car. He was patient and took about an hour to teach me how to drive stick better and was not pushy.
Has anyone noticed any issues with theirs 2012 countryman?
Any tips would be appreciated.
I use to own a Ford Focus stick ----> Prius ---> Maybe this Countryman now
