Hi am after 05 or 56 for about £11500. ive read lots of threads on your site and the impression i get is there are lots of problems with gearboxes, clutches, engine noises, air con power steering ,ect,ect. MINIS spending to much time back at the dealers.I would like one but they dont seem very reliable.I drive 70 miles round trip to work 6 days a week and need a reliable car . I now drive a 03 tdci focus for 4 years and its never been in the garage. Is it only people with problems write in and many thousends of people are very happy. ANY advice or thoughts would be a great help.
