Photo Captioned 'A 2002 Mini One Hatch'[edit]

In the section entitled 'Mini Hatch/Hardtop (2001 to 2006)' there is a picture which has been captioned 'a 2002 Mini One Hatch'. I clicked on the link to the picture's own page, where I did not notice any reference to 2002.

The bumper style is that of the refreshed (very slightly face-lifted with new gearbox) 1st generation hatch, which I am sure was introduced in 2004. It cannot therefore be a 2002 Mini One hatch. Perhaps someone would like to change this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.98.126.130 (talk) 22:44, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Source: "10 Cars You’d Be Foolish to Buy" by Consumer Reports, April 2, 2015 (please consider adding part of the info below, probably just something like "Consumer Reports, April 2, 2015 stated "...the Mini Cooper S has the worst history among all cars we have tracked over the past decade.""

Worst used car: Mini Cooper S

When it comes to choosing a used car, you can put the odds on your side by choosing a model that performed well when new and has a great reliability track record. Of course, reliability hiccups can happen with any used car, but the Mini Cooper S has the worst history among all cars we have tracked over the past decade.Italic text Sure, the car is cute and delightfully entertaining, but year after year, the likelihood of having a problem that requires a repair is heartbreaking. And among the 17 trouble spots we track, engine major, engine minor, engine cooling, fuel system, body integrity, and body hardware have issues at an alarming rate. Although Consumer Reports often recommends skipping an extended warranty, the Mini Cooper S is a case where the investment would be a good hedge against potential problems. Joining the Mini Cooper S as among the worst used cars are the Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T and Ford Fiesta—although these models have fewer model years to anchor their position among the worst of the worst. 96.247.224.140 (talk) 06:04, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
