    I fail to see why people buy Mini. The auto line is the worst in the world with the highest amount of defects per 100 cars. Almost half of the 100 cars have 2 defects off the assembly line.The rest are promised to have at least 1. Plus no one can sit in back. A comfy seating position for the front people removes any ability for people in back unless you get the Clubman or countryman.
