    Actully it was more reading Consumer Reports, JDPower and USNews and various owner reviews. Lots of people love their Minis but most do admit that the repairs are many and costly. The fact that...

    We are now looking harder at the Nissan Jukes. The complaints about Mini Cooper reliability are legion and for the kind of mileage I'll be putting on it (30k per year), that scares me.

    Make sure any home inspector you use is certified and has liability insurance. Have him prepare a written report of his findings or make sure you are there, write all the findings down and then have...

    I don't think it's ever said specifically how tall Jamie is, but if I recall correctly, he is nearly a foot taller than Claire's 5'6" so I was thinking 6'4" or 6'5" and usually "towered over everyone...

    Fantasy is definitely better than reality! Keep those happy thoughts of that time you had, shiny.

    My husband and I went through a real rough patch seven years ago and separated for a while...

    I've found a 2008 with low miles that is loaded with everything I want. It's owned by it's original owner who special ordered it and has taken excellent care of it. It is a turbo model and the...

    HUGE fan of the Outlander series here as well. Am so pleased with how well they've done the television series. It always so disappointing when they muck around with a story very near and dear to...

    Good to know. The owner of the 2008 said her husband did the oil changes and their indy guy (closest dealer is 2 hrs away), did any other maintenance. It's only got 42k miles on it. Thanks ThinIce...

    I have been on northeramercianmotoring.com and some on there advocate avoiding the 2008-2011 years all together and especially the Turbo models. 2012 they introduced the N18 engine which is supposed...

    Those of you who bought used, particularly from a private party, did you have the car inspected first?

    I have no problem with "rescue" when someone adopts from a shelter as most shelters do in fact kill animals, so adopting an animal from a shelter is basically saving it's life. Even no kill shelters...

    I bought 9 of the Shires small weave, slow feed hay nets two or three years ago now and they are all still in great shape. For a horse who needs a lot, I just use two of them. I tie mine up above...

    My 2011 Hyundai Elantra is a decent little car that I can make scream along very nicely and it is comfortable if not exactly fun. It's very utilitarian. It's the "Limited" version and adore the...

    I get the term. Having had horses all of my life there have definitely been different levels of connection for me with them. Some I thoroughly enjoyed; some I tolerated; some I couldn't wait to find...

    Thanks OTI! I was just checking out the Juke reviews and it does not get the claimed MPG. I know, I know, no surprise. Of course, I was looking at used, like the 2011 which are the first runs and...

    Ha! And thanks for pointing that out about the Juke. Will keep an open mind about them in case my masterplan for a Mini fails to come to fruition.

    Are you referring to the original Mini (coupe) and not the Clubman about the cargo area? If so, I understand the comparison. I've ruled out the Mini coupe version because of it's limited cargo area...

    Thanks a damn lot!!! I'm sitting here laughing and crying at my desk and everyone wants to know "What's so funny!?" And I can't bloody tell them!!!!! :congratulatory:

    I do think the Juke is darling but with my husband and kid in the car, I doubt that cargo area would hold a week's worth of groceries.

    I am a car nut and adore sports cars and always had a stick...
