TYRES

With Dunlop tyres being fitted as original equipment it is no surprise that this tyre is fitted to 89.2%. Michelin tyres are used on 3.8%, Pirelli by 2.2%, Goodyear by 1.2%, Firestone by 1.1%, and Avon by 0.9%. Tyre life on the Mini series varies considerably with use but if anyone obtains 242,000 miles on a set they appear to have done well. Some of the harder drivers consume a set of Dunlop Gold Seal tyres in under 3,000 miles!

Would you buy this car again ? Yes, 64%. No, 36%.

Although 64% said they would buy the car again, many people Said that they would only do so if they could be satisfied that the many faults had been ironed out. Others said that they would buy the car again because they could find no other car with a similar combination of good handling and performance characteristics matched with excellent fuel consumption. If such a car appeared having fewer mechanical faults than the Mini they would buy it; some Mini owners felt that the Cooper-Mini might well be a great improvement.

The following cars were named by those who will not buy a Mini again.
