Mini Coopers are unique, sporty, and sleek and are one of the most recognized cars that can be quite a pleasure and fun to drive. New Mini Cooper owners should look out for common problems with the coolant hose and the front radiator support. Your Mini Cooper sits lower to the ground than most cars, and hitting a curb is not advisable. The radiator support is plastic and located at the front end of the vehicle. While the plastic support was intended to reduce the weight of the car, it is a vulnerable area, and any significant bump on the car’s front can damage the radiator support and consequently damage the coolant hose.
