1994 Rover - Austin Mini MINI COOPER 1.3i 1.3i from UK and Ireland
Brilliant, 90% reliable, fun, charismatic, ladies love it!!!
Head gasket at 28k.
Blown diff at 29k.
Engine at 32k.
(all of the above above is only because I drove it like I stole it!)
Alternator siezed over winter.
Engine mount bolt sheared in engine block, helicoiled now.
This car is seriously quick for its age and engine capacity! It's the best car I've driven in a longtime!!!
Insurance was a killer when I was 17, £2500 for a year!!!
The car would have never failed if I had driven sensibly as I forgot they're not built for racing!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
