With iconic styling and renowned handling, the MINI 3-Door and 5-Door Hatch are unlike anything else you'll see on the road. Simply put, they are everything you love about MINI and more connected than ever.
What's the Best Used MINI to Buy. I will be explaining the pros and cons of the three generations of MINI's and which one is the most reliable in my opinion. Thank you for watching! ------- Post video comments and Pro -Tips - I highly recommend having the vehicle inspected "Pre-Purchase Inspection" by a MINI specialist , either a dealership or independent shop before purchasing. Not only could it save you a ton of money and future heartache but it can give you extra leverage in negotiating purchasing price. -Once you do purchase your MINI ( congratulations by the way) it is paramount you check or have your engine oil level checked every other week, as the engines naturally consume oil and there is no oil level sensor to tell you when you are low on the first and second generations. You can use the dipstick to check. -Recommend having the transmission serviced ( fluid, filter and computer reset if applicable) every 80k miles or less by a specialist. This will help maintain the life of the transmission. If it has super high mileage I would just leave it alone and hope for the best. Doing a service may just upset it and cause issues. --------------- And for all the motorheads out there her are the engine & body designations by year. The following are the engine codes for all current MINI Cooper’s (Not Classics) First Generation MINIs 2002-2006 R50 Cooper = W10 (W10B16) 1.6 Non Supercharged 2002-2006 R53 Cooper S = W11 (W11B16) 1.6 Supercharged NOTE: 1st gen convertibles were made at the same time the 2nd gen Coupe was. Lots of people get confused when they have a 2007 or 2008 convertible and think its a 2nd gen. 2005-2008 R52 Cooper Convertible = W10 (W10B16) 1.6 Non Supercharged 2005-2008 R52 Cooper S Convertible = W11 (W11B16) 1.6 Supercharged Second generation MINIs NOTE: 2nd gen Convertible was released in 2009 in Cooper and Cooper S trim. 2007-2010 R56 and R57 Cooper = N12 (N12B16) Non Turbo 2007-2010 R56S and R57S Cooper S = N14 (N14B16) Turbo 2008-2010 R55 Clubman = N12 (N12B16) Non Turbo 2008-2010 R55S Clubman S = N14 (N14B16) Turbo Engine change for 2011 2011 + R56 and R57 Cooper = N16 (N16B16) Non Turbo 2011 + R56S and R57S Cooper S = N18 (N18B16) Turbo 2011 + R55 Clubman = N16 (N16B16) Non Turbo 2011 + R55S Clubman S = N18 (N18B16) Turbo 2011 + R60 Countryman = N16 (N16B16) Non Turbo 2011 + R60S Countryman S = N18 (N18B16) Turbo 2011 + R60S Countryman S ALL4 = N18 (N18B16) Turbo Source – Post by Professor on the Bluegrass MINIs site Third Generation MINIs The engines now have a B code and are modular in design.

If you want your car to serve you longer and save money on expensive service and maintenance, pay attention to these simple yet really important rules. Experts recommend a few things to keep in mind and a few common mistakes to avoid to make your car last longer. If you stick around till the end of the video, we’ll tell you how you can fix a cracked windshield with garlic. Having the correct tire pressure is a sort of “Goldilocks” situation. If it gets too low OR too high, you can have serious problems. Don't forget about seasonal tire changes and remember to swap your front and rear tires at least once a year. Sharp acceleration and abrupt braking might feel like fun, but they’re actually extremely harmful to vehicles. If you decide to park on an incline and put your car in Park, it puts too much pressure on the transmission. In rare cases, it can even become dislodged or break down. So the best option is to use the emergency brake. With the help of the symbols on the car's dashboard, your car can tell you when something's wrong, like when the engine's overheated, something's wrong with the electrical system, or the brake fluid level is too low. Go to an auto repair shop as soon as possible to save yourself from expensive repairs or even an accident. Weighing your vehicle down excessively does nothing good for the car's suspension, steering, transmission, tires, and engine. Plus, overloading increases fuel consumption and makes the car more difficult to handle. Remember that cars, just like people, need regular check-ups and “health” tests. Music: Retro - Wayne Jones https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS Keep your tire pressure in-check. 0:40 Take it easy on the gas and brake pedals. 2:03 Park correctly. 2:42 Don't ignore the dashboard. 3:54 Don't forget about vehicle inspections and repairs. 5:13 Avoid overloading. 6:03 Don't overload the clutch. 6:50 Bonus: fix a cracked windshield with garlic! 7:18 SUMMARY -Check your tire pressure at least twice a month (but once a week is even better). While adding air to your tires, make sure they aren't warm to the touch and don't overfill them. -If you’re a fan of sharp acceleration and abrupt braking, remember both of them are actually extremely harmful to vehicles. Plus, you’re just burning more gas than you need to. -Avoid throwing the car into Park before coming to a full and complete stop. The same goes for putting the car into Drive or Reverse before stopping fully: don’t do it. -If you notice the engine light flashing while you're driving, slow down right away because this might be a sign of a serious problem. The brake light lets you know that somewhere in the braking system something has gone wrong. -Check your car’s manual to find out how often you should change your oil or air filter and remember that a lot of it depends on your driving habits. Get yearly inspections and keep in mind that routine maintenance will depend on the season and the mileage. -Get acquainted with the maximum load capacity for your car and stick to it. Try to get rid of all of the useless stuff in your car. -Don't hold the clutch in at long traffic lights. During short stops, shift to Neutral and press the clutch right before you start moving. -Take a clove of garlic, cut it lengthwise down the middle, rub the cut side over the crack, and wipe away the excess juice with a paper towel or napkin to keep the crack from getting worse until you can get it repaired.
