Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Mini Hatchback hatchback?

Most Minis will have been used enthusiastically so check the bodywork for any car-park scuffs and dings to the wings, as well as the alloy wheels for any kerb damage.

What are the most common problems with a used Mini Hatchback hatchback?

EGR module may leak

A number of diesel-powered Minis built between 3 March 2014 and 17 March 2017 that are fitted with an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) module could have an issue with it leaking. In extreme circumstances, it could cause a fire, so affected cars should be inspected by a Mini dealer to find out if it needs replacing.
