Buying 2010 Mini Cooper D
Hi, possibly a new Mini owner here, I'm just looking for some advice please!
My Dad is getting a new car, so I'm considering buying his old Mini Cooper D.
Its a '10 plate (PSA engine I think, I've looked at the interior and the dials are silver, I believe this is an identifier?). It's done 53K, and has full service history. He's owned it for the past 5 years and has always looked after it. My only concern is reliability. I have an '05 Honda Jazz, and it starts first time every time, but its a complete shed (mould, leaks etc) so I'm looking for something newish.
We haven't really discussed a price, but it will be between £3-£4k.
Would it be a good idea to buy it, or is it coming up to the age where everything starts to go wrong and starts costing me a fortune in repairs?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated - Thanks!
