Check engine light – came on again right before christmas took mini to a mechanic who specializes in mini coopers. you will see the attached invoice tell what he found. told me that it could be several thousand dollars to repair mini cooper that i had bought from drive with pride. unbelieveable what was found especially inlight of carfax with date of 8/10/16 stated what drive with pride had done to vehicle. they absolutely knew !!!
• bolts missing
• intake manifold not secured
• zipties holding things together
• things misrouted
• intake hoses glued together
• chunks missing from throttle body
• what appears to be epoxy on trottle body blade
I paid over $13k for this car…..never have i been so taken advantage of by a dealership!
Do not buy from drive with pride
Owners : roland naaman & moe assarri

I attached the invoice that i paid to have car looked at another
$456.15, to tell me this car sucks!!! buyer beware they will not be selling you a dependable car. i have bought used cars in my lifetime and honestly have never had an experience like this. my bad shopping for a specific type car with low mileage. run far and fast!!!
