A Little Bit about the Mini Cooper
The sleek and sporty Mini Cooper draws attention everywhere it goes. Their drivers smile as they pass up gas pumps left and right with excellent fuel economy.
According to the official company website, the following is the jargon used when describing the various vehicles within the brand.
- “Classic Mini” refers specifically to the older, classic version of the car.
- “MINI” is used when referring to the newest models OR when referring to MINI as the brand.
MINI cars have a unique layout for their front wheel drive. The engine lays sideways. This allows 80% of the interior space to be used for passengers, thus explaining how four people could fit relatively comfortably in such a small space.
The designer of the car, Sir Alec Issigonis, hated the concept of windows that rolled up and down. He demanded that the windows on the Mini slide open.
The Mini was originally a product of the British Motor Corporation. After changing hands a few times, BMW acquired MINI and has owned the brand since 2000.
Common Problems with the MINI
Mechanical Fuel Pump Failure: Some symptoms of a bad fuel pump include whining noises from the fuel tank, an engine that is difficult to start, poor performance from the engine, and eventually, your MINI won’t start at all.
Thermostat issues: Some symptoms of a bad thermostat include overheating, temperature fluctuations, and poor engine performance.
Suspension problems: This affects the handling of your Mini Cooper, and can lead to loss of control of the vehicle. You may also experience pulling or drifting while steering, a bouncy ride after going over bumps, and uneven wear on your tires’ treads.
