I loved my mini. I let it go because maintenance costs of a BMW...Someone recently was telling me they wanted a new one but the build quality of the new ones isn’t as good as before.

Great cars and fun to drive.


I can count on my hand the number of times I’ve had someone in the back seat of my Mini hatch. However, it is big enough for two people to road trip with lots of stuff.

Just remember, they’re affordable to buy but they’re designed by BMW, so $$$$$$$$ maintenance and repair costs.

Keep an eye on the cooling system. I’ve never had a BMW product that didn’t need the cooling system completely replaced over time

For those who currently own a home in the Atlanta area—do you have a home warranty provider that you really like and would recommend?


I have a question, I got a contract role through a recruiter. Initially the recruiter offered the hourly pay rate which was the minimum in my range. Now I got an offer from the company. Now without me asking her she increased the hourly wage to the maximum range I asked. Which makes me doubt if the company increased it or she knew the rate all along but gave me the lower rate ?

Are dealerships not negotiating car prices right now due to the chip shortage and high demand for cars? Or is it just the used car market?


Thinking of gifting myself a used Panamera. 2017-2018, about 50k miles and for 50k $ (sample numbers, been looking at 4s). Any recommendations on the car (this is my first big car purchase of years of saving for family) but don’t want to burden myself with ridiculous maintenance bills. Any advice on the model /trim or even if it’s worth buying or not? I am looking for a fun ride after many years of hard work but don’t want to have it sit in the shop and burn another hole in my pocket. TIA

Driving my dads Ram 1500 with the 5.7 hemi for the next couple. I miss driving a V8 with the rapid acceleration and power but I really don’t miss paying for the fuel. My daily driver is a Chrysler 200 with a 4 cylinder and my other option to use while it’s in the shop was a 7.3 Powerstroke.

I’m looking at a Toyota Sequoia (used) and I found the exact trim I’m looking for at a third-party dealership. This dealership doesn’t have great ratings and are known for selling crappy cars/deceiving financial illiterate individuals and selling them ridiculously high interest rates. They got sued 6 years ago.

The Carfax looks clean no accidents and the SUV drove fine.

what can I do to protect myself here? Could I ask them if I can take it to a Toyota dealer to get it check out?


How accurate is CarGurus? Looking for a new SUV and I typically search by best deal available but I don’t really know if they’re accurate.
