Cost of maintenance
I am thinking about purchasing about a
countryman and am concerned about the
cost of maintenance. Is this a high expense?
Do I have to always take it back to a BMW
BMW's are much higher than the average car when it comes to repairs and maintenance. I highly recommend finding a good independent BMW shop to work on your car.
Yes they do have a high cost to own rating. No you don’t need to have the work done by BMW. There are some independent shops out there that specialize in BMW and those would be your best bet. But most shops will work on them.
Both responses are true & reliable. But the next step. The Mini has a terrible reputation for reliability and if you plan to keep it more than around three years, the bills are going to mount up. Just my opinion.
