Clutch slips in 3rd gear going up any reasonable incline.
Front wheel bearings have made noise since purchase - still to be fixed!
New noise at front, sounds like brakes worn, only when wheel is turned. Not clicking, so I don't think it's the universal joints.
Door hinges have dropped slightly.
Rust can be a problem, this one has some in the A panel (behind front wheels) but the rest is reasonable, apart from some older previous repairs which are coming "unstuck".
I've always wanted a Mini - small, cute, top fun to drive! When the wife said I should get a small second car, I didn't hesitate. The kids love it too!
Although quite punchy with no passengers, it knows when someone else climbs aboard, especially when faced with a hill. Have given though to "improving" the power, but it would cost me more to run.
It actually has more legroom than the Datsun 1500 flat tray I had previously - although not quite as versatile. We got a trailer for the family wagon instead!
Low slung standard web seats are quite comfortable, the only negative though minor, is getting out of the thing because it is so low (and I have long legs).
