Second-Hand MINIs From March

Sat, 02 Mar 2002
BMW has launched a controlled second-hand programme for the new MINI to be called 'MINI Cherished'.

It offers used buyers a complete package of at least 12 months unlimited mileage warranty and Europe-wide emergency service, plus accident management throughout the car's life.

Most Cherished MINIs will come with the remainder of their £100 five-year MINI tlc service pack. All will get a full service prior to sale (if a service is due within 4,000 miles), a thorough multi-point check and road test, a fresh MOT if over 3 years old and an independent history and mileage check. Also a commitment that if any demonstrable fault is found within 30 days or 1,000 miles which can’t be fixed then the car will be replaced like for like.

It is expected that during 2002, around 3,000 used MINIs will be offered through the MINI Cherished scheme. I would expect prices to be high, benefiting first owners of MINIs by protecting their investment.
