    Looks like the only thing about MINI other than CPO being down is that sales were slightly up?

    MINI Brand Sales
    • For September, MINI USA reported 3,505 vehicles sold, an increase of 1.3 percent from the 3,461 in the same month a year ago.
    Still, pretty low sales extrapolated out.

    I won't pretend to be a US auto sales expert and could really care less about what any manufacturer sells. As a consumer, however, I can say that most of the MINI lineup really doesn't really seem like a car that most families "need" when compared to other family haulers available. They're expensive, have a horrible public image in regards to their reliability, and don't offer anything that any other premium brand doesn't aside from the whole MINI schtick. MOTD and the friends (and enemies) I've made is the best thing, to me, about owning a MINI. The general public could care less about that aspect as most cars are just an appliance. And most people don't think of MINI as premium as they do say BMW, Lexus or Mercedes. No idea what they need to do, but they need to do something. #bringbacktheR53 #butwithaturbo2litre I'm sure the GP3 will sell, but at that price, you can get quite a few cars with better performance capabilities both in handling and power. It's definitely not going to help sales.

    They still include them as new cars sales......they are used cars no matter how you look at it.
