Unique, fun, and stylish, the Mini Cooper is an iconic vehicle that is loved by many. If you currently own a MINI or you’re thinking about getting one, you may be wondering how long you can expect it to last.
While the lifespan of a Mini Cooper varies depending on a number of factors, you can generally expect to get to around 100,000 miles before parts start nearing the end of their effective lifespan and you begin risking a major component failure. However, with proper care, it’s common for Mini Coopers to last between 200,000 and 250,000 miles before breaking down or requiring uneconomical repairs.
