Mini Cooper S Clubman Most Versatile!
As a Mini lover, I love the Clubman most! It is the most versatile in it's size/compactness v. its size/usable space. Whether you have a 5-seater or 4-seater (as I do), the third door stretches it out just a bit but not as much as the (giant) Countryman or 4-door. The sun and moon roofs also open it up to make it FEEL big on the inside. Then, the back doors opening up horizontally combined with the extra hidden space in the back, the Clubman truly has everything you need!
I got this car because I wanted a Mini Cooper soooooo badly. I thought they were adorable. It turns out that this year of Clubmans had a closed recall that I did not know about until after I bought it. Bad timing chain. So, I had to get that replaced. I also had an oil leak and had to get new brakes. Then three months after all of these repairs ($4k worth) I go to Valvoline to get my oil changed and they find ANOTHER oil leak. We had gotten the first leak fixed by a MINI dealer, and we are almost certain they did not fix it correctly the first time. A gasket was leaking very badly, but how does that bad of an oil leak come to be in only a few months?? Either way, a really fun car to own, but oh man the maintenance upkeep is insane and I had (if the Mini dealer DID fix it right) two oil leaks within 4 months. I'm currently trying to sell it. Even with all of this trouble, the car never broke down on me. For that I am greatly appreciative.
