problem #2

Cooper S 4 cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 30,000 miles

no spare tire, no one repairs run-flats

My gripe is that when you travel outside of urban areas and get a flat, tire repair companies (this has happened 3X in 60,000 miles) say they aren't allowed to repair run-flats and that it'll take several days to get a replacement tire. It's a tough situation to be in.... no spare, no jack, no tire iron, no repair possibility, and no tire that fits a Mini S in stock. On two of the 3 occasions I was 200 miles from a city.

Cooper S S Convertible

The runflats were a huge waste of money switching to regular tires made my mileage better.
