Click to access MarketWatch report. Interesting reading. Hyundai has the least complaints of the 10 listed! That is why we have been buying them for the last 7 years.


Though I grew up and lived in Britain when the (original) Mini was all the rage, I never liked it. Though I was never that big, I found it claustrophobic even from the outside. I am sure I have never driven one and really can’t remember ever getting inside one — which is kind of strange because it really was the most popular car around when I was going to school and university.

That people can have sex in a Mini has always amazed me — partly because I was a member of a group of Triumph sports car owners (in the 1970s) whose mission was to publicize the best ways to have sex in Spitfires, TR6s and TR7s as a public service to others.

But a Mini? Why would you? Isn’t there no shame?

Anyway …
