    Me either. If I ever buy domestic again, it'll be a Ford. But I can't lie, I'm loving my MINI...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    true story, mini's are nice, are they still owned by BMW? i used to have a bimmer 330ci, when i thought i was cool about 7 years ago or so. the bimmer dealer where i live had a mini dealer attached. those cars can take corners on a dime.

    its tough for me to buy domestic because japanese cars are so reliable. at this point in my life, i like knowing that i wont have to go to the dealer to spend 2 grand to get my car fixed.

    Yeah, they're owned by BMW. I test drove one and fell in love immediately. I had it up to 90 mph without even trying, and the thing hugged the road. If it ever needs repairs, it's gonna be expensive as hell, but luckily they tend to be pretty reliable...

    Isn't that capitalism at its best? You invest, you lose, tough luck.

    Crazy what happens when you stop making ****ty cars.

    Next carmaker to go belly up: Lincoln. Look at their 2013 models if you want to know why. Eww.
