Outstanding reliability. better than any of the three mini's I owned. Claimed improvement in running costs of multiair engine over previous engine is not as the manufacturer claimed.

No problems since I took delivery of the car. 3 years free servicing & a 3 year warranty so I've paid nothing so far.
