Benefits of Driving a 2008 MINI Cooper S Clubman Wagon

Few cars come as close to conveying the pure joy of driving like a MINI. From the more practical base model to the thrill-a-minute S, and with virtually every conceivable option under the sun available, the MINI Clubman can be ordered to suit virtually any driver. And though their price may seem high for what these cars are, try to find a MINI driver who regrets the purchase.

What's new for 2008?

All new for 2008, the Clubman represents the third model line for the MINI brand. Designed to exhibit all the handling characteristics of the highly revered Cooper, the Clubman is built on the same platform with a three-inch longer wheelbase and six-inch longer rear overhang. The lengthened body does little to diminish what can best be described as go-kart-like handling, but does translate to more comfortable seating for rear passengers and a larger, more practical cargo area. Standard and optional equipment mirror those of the Cooper and Cooper S hatchbacks, so with a slightly higher base price, one gets all the fun of a regular Cooper in a more user-friendly package.

Model Strengths

  • Same maneuverability, more practicality
  • bigger, but still MINI.

Model Review

The 2008 MINI Clubman was a highly anticipated model, as it added more versatility to the popular line. The length of the Clubman is more than nine inches longer than the MINI Cooper, which means the interior seating and cargo spaces are much more useable. Visually, the coupe's rear hatch has been replaced by what can be endearingly referred to as 'barn doors.' Instead of one large door that rises up, these split doors swing to the side independent of each other, similar to the Clubman's ancestors from decades past. Also, on the passenger side of the car is the 'Clubdoor,' a small rear hinged door which greatly benefits passenger ingress and egress.

MINI Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

*MINI NEXT Warranty Program provides coverage for 2 years or 50,000 (whichever comes first) from the expiration date of the 4 year/50,000 mile MINI New Passenger Car Limited Warranty.

Although the MINI NEXT Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty is pretty comprehensive, it is not an extension of the MINI New Passenger Car Limited Warranty. The MINI NEXT Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty takes over when the original MINI New Passenger Car Limited Warranty expires and provides somewhat different coverage.

*See your local MINI Dealer for complete details about MINI NEXT Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty coverage.
Age/Mileage Eligibility Less than 5 yrs (60 months) and under 60,000 miles
Lease Term Certified Yes
Point Inspection Each MINI NEXT car has been inspected bonnet-to-boot by a MINI trained technician. We like to think of it as a massage. It is a process carried out by some of the most dedicated technicians in the business meant to refresh your MINI and ensure that the first feelings you experience out on the open road are ones of pure and utter goodness.
Return/Exchange Program No
Roadside Assistance **Coverage for 2 years/unlimited miles starting at the expiration of the 4 year/unlimited mile MINI New Passenger Car Roadside Assistance Plan
Special Financing Yes
Transferrable Warranty The MINI NEXT Protection Plan is fully transferable from the original MINI NEXT purchaser or lessee to subsequent owner(s) or lessee(s)
Warranty Deductible $50
