2007 vs 2009 Mini Cooper

Asked by Aug 27, 2017 at 07:48 AM about the MINI Cooper

Question type: Shopping & Pricing


I'm currently in the process of buying a mini but deciding between a 2007 or
2009 one. The 2007 is obviously selling at a cheaper price and I was
wondering are there any difference between the year models and is it worth
buying the 2009 one?

The model years you are looking at basically are unchanged, maybe an option here or there but from the same generation. The convertible was redesigned for 2009 though. The reason the Mini's are so inexpensive used is that once they get some miles on them, they can be a maintenance nightmare. So do some more research if you plan on buying one. You should be able to do basic work on these vehicles, because constant trips to the garage can get expensive.


It will be in the shop more than it will be in you garage. You have been warned.


Don't buy either one. Minis are usually maintenance nightmares.
