Buying a mini within 48 hours - Help Please :)
I've always wanted to buy a mini and I think I'm going to scratch that itch this week. I've heard the 2004's have problems with electrical, so I thought 2006 should be okay.
I found a 2006 w/ 70,000K at an amazing price. Its the exactly package and colour that I want.
My questions to anyone in the know are:
1) What kind of big money (non-regular maintenance) expenses should I expect soon since it already has 70,000k.
2) Any known problems I should be aware of for 2006 years?
3) When does the timing belt need to be changed?
4) Should I just spend a few more thousand and get an 08 or 09?
Any help would be appreciated.
PS. It's probably going to be an auto
PPS. Im going from a Mazda 3 Sport 2.3L to this, I'm hoping its more fun to drive in traffic and on the highway.
