Every car is prone to problems, but the haters seem to think a MINI should be perfect for some reason.

So you're basing your opinions on a sample size of one as well?

Hell, from where you live the ride down there is the best part. Just head over west a bit and ride the mountain roads through WV. Best part about going to the Smokies is the ride down there IMHO.

Same here, about any way I would take to get there other than the interstate is just as good of a twisty ride as the area itself. Parts of 28 especially.
