Where to find used Minis for sale
If you go to any dealership, you'll likely see a MINI peaking out among the other pre-loved makes and models. As this car brand tends to hold its value well, it remains a popular choice for second-hand buyers, meaning you won't have to travel far for the MINI of your dreams.
In fact, with our easy-to-use online search function, you can quickly find a used car in your local area.
A few things to look out for:
Ensuring you get a good deal for your used car is our priority and, when it comes to the MINI, there are a few more maintenance factors to consider than your standard city hatchback.
Although the engines in earlier models are more reliable, they come with a complicated cooling system and may present issues further down the line. Just like with any second-hand vehicle, checking for oil leaks is a must.
Some used MINIs also experience faults with the gearbox. This is particularly problematic in models with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). As an automatic system, it is designed to create a smooth and seamless driving experience. However, issues around slipping or failure to engage gears have been reported by some drivers.
As with all second-hand shopping, it's important to take your MINI for a test drive. This will give you peace of mind that you are taking away a reliable car that will last.

Are used MINIs cheap to maintain?
Compared to other makes, like Toyota or Honda, MINIs are not the cheapest cars to maintain. Due to their specialist and high-quality parts, replacement costs tend to be higher, although this can vary depending on the model and age of the used car.
Generally speaking, MINIs are reliable cars, especially if they have been well looked after by their previous owner. If you want to keep down the cost of repairs in the long run, we would recommend doing regular checks on areas such as the brakes and tires.
One of the main concerns over buying a second-hand vehicle is whether it is more likely to break down or need costly repairs. While there may be instances of wear and tear, or other age-related problems, a used car in good condition can often be a cost-effective option in the long term.
At Exchange and Mart, we work with trusted dealers and advertise quality used cars in our listings. When you arrive at the dealership, it's important to ensure that you receive a complete vehicle history and are made aware of any issues before committing to the car.
Is a used MINI a good first car?
You've just passed your driving test and are looking for the perfect first car. There's a lot to consider. You need something that is reliable, easy to drive, and can fit nicely into any parking space. Oh, and it needs to be affordable to buy and affordable to run.
If you have your heart set on a MINI but don't have the budget to buy a brand-new model, the used car market is the place for you. But with so many models to choose from, it's hard to know where to begin...
The MINI Cooper is not just classic in design but is compact in size, making it ideal for new drivers who are just getting to grips with the dimensions of a car. It also makes it much easier to navigate narrow streets and tight corners. Understandably, many new drivers are apprehensive about getting behind the wheel of their first car. The Cooper's responsive handling makes for a comfortable and enjoyable driving experience.
Although it's not the cheapest make on the second-hand market, it's the ideal choice for those after a car that looks as good as it drives. Plus, we have plenty of great deals to take advantage of in our listings…
Which MINI is best for a family?
If you're on the hunt for a car that can accommodate a family, you'll likely be looking for something that is comfortable, safe, and spacious.
The MINI Countryman offers more space than other models, while still having that iconic styling. This is the largest model in MINI's portfolio, with enough room to comfortably fit 5 passengers. Any family-friendly car will require a little extra luggage capacity - with the Countryman, the rear seats can be folded down independently to create different variations of passenger and cargo space.
Perfectly balancing performance and practicality, it makes for an incredibly versatile car.
Does MINI produce cars with electric power?
Yes! Switching to an electric car can be daunting for many. With our range of MINI Electric models, you can reduce your carbon footprint for a fraction of the price.
An all-electric version of the much-loved MINI Cooper, this car combines classic design with cutting-edge technology. On a single charge, it has an average range of up to 145 miles, although this can depend on several factors including the condition of the car's battery and the weather. This means it will be easier to run, for a fuss-free driving experience. Its regenerative braking system is another stand-out feature, helping to improve the car's energy efficiency.
Although electric cars are becoming more common, you should always double-check that there are enough charging points in your area. Cities tend to have more electric car charging points available than rural locations, so this is something to consider before making the purchase.
