Even when you first look lay eyes on the mini it is not hard to notice the distinctive retro charm and you quickly realise that the BMW Mini has not only relied on the Minis' fabulous history but also used innovation and attention to detail to ensure that's this vehicle is possibly the market leader in its class. The mini may be more expensive than that of some of the competition, but you get true quality and originality for your money. BMW Mini as it is now has put some real effort into detail such as the mini one's chrome work, door handles and excellent exterior fit and finish. Inside, the Mini has vast amounts of aluminium look finishes, unusual for a car in this class BMW Mini have spend a lot of time and effort ensuring that the finer details are more refined than the competition. Just look at the various textured plastics and ultra stylish seats. If your 6 ft or under you should also fit quite comfortably inside. Some models we've driven have emitted a few squeaks from the interior trim, but otherwise, it feels well engineered and is likely to prove robust and trouble-free. 

According to Green Car Guide, The MINI Cooper D Hatch is already one of our top recommended green cars – and it sits at the very head of the pile in terms of sexy green cars. It’s got a great design, handling, performance and economy. And now its main limitation – its very small size, especially in terms of boot space – has been rectified with the launch of the MINI Clubman. They go on to say that there are currently no other cars that can combine such great styling, handling, performance and economy. Compared to other cars of this size, the MINI is expensive – however, it’s one of the least depreciating cars around, so although you’ll pay more to buy it, you’ll also get more for it when you sell it.

When thinking about buying a warranty for your used Mini or extending your current car warranty whether you bought it privately or through a dealer consider the following.

There are a wide range of mechanical breakdown policies ( Car Warranty ) available today. All are designed to protect buyers against the costs of sudden and unforeseen failure of a specified list of components on your vehicle. The covered components may vary according to the age and mileage of the vehicle, ranging from policies that provide wide protection on newer motors or used vehicles that are only a few years old, through to more limited covers for much older or higher mileage vehicles ( 50 000 miles or 60 000 miles is a fairly common benchmark here ). It is very important that you are offered the correct policy for the vehicle you are buying. Therefore you should really understand the level of cover you need for the particular model of vehicle you are buying to ensure that you actually do buy cover for the parts that are prone to failure. Generally, with a used car warranty the more extensive the level of cover i.e. protection includes a big range of components, the more you should expect to pay. You should generally pay less for a policy with a restricted list of parts covered. Find out what the weaknesses are for the model of vehicle you are buying and get a policy to protect yourself armed with this knowledge.

More About Extending Your Mini Warranty


When buying a new Mini you will automatically be given a manufacturer’s warranty. The Manufacturer’s warranty can be valid for a period of between one and three years. Now there is a point which can often cause confusion so here is our chance to clarify for you. Under a standard manufacturers warranty, you are free to get your car serviced at any service station/garage in the UK and still benefit from the manufacturer’s new car warranty, providing the service is carried out to the car manufacturer’s recommendations and you have informed the policy provider who you will be using. A used car dealership could also offer a warranty which extends a two-year warranty to three years for you. Such a dealer based warranty may have much more restrictions in the small print over the original manufacturer’s warranty, so be aware of this. Some of the restrictions could be things like limiting the mileage to a maximum of 60 000 miles or that services must be done by the same dealer who has given you the warranty. Policies May Also Have Other Limits. Warranty Policies will often have a maximum amount payable for any claim; this may range from a few hundred to a few thousand pounds. You are advised to check the adequacy of these limits bearing in mind the cost of breakdown for major components when deciding on the upper limits of your cover. Some extended warranties for cars policies have a betterment clause, in which case you would have to pay something if your vehicle was improved following repair. They may also have a maximum amount payable during the life of the policy. There may be an excess that you will need to pay yourself if you have to make a claim. Some automotive components may have specific claim limits or excesses applied to the as well.

The Old Wear and Tear Clause


The majority of Used Mini Warranty Policies or Mechanical Breakdown Insurance Policies as you may well have heard it referred to are NOT maintenance contracts and therefore do not cover breakdown costs that arise through normal wear and tear on your vehicle. "Wear and tear" is the expected reduction in performance of a part due to the car's age, mileage and/or use. 

For this reason we would like to make it abundantly clear that you should be aware that an engine failure can often be attributed to ’wear and tear’ as parts often wear down rather than break. If you do not want your Mini warranty provider to reject a claim on these grounds you should ensure that it is clearly stated in the terms and conditions that both "mechanical breakdown" and "wear and tear" are covered by your policy.
