I took delivery of our 2012 CM "S" All4 in early December 2011. At the time of purchase, I opted to wait on the extended warranty so I could make an objective decision, after doing some due diligency, whether it is actually worth it or not ($2400). Does anyone have any input as to the kinds of things I should expect to need repair & the approximate cost, after the 36K warranty expires? Any input would be helpful. Also, please consider that my nearest factory dealership is 25-30 miles from where I live and I have a great mechanic (R2 Racing in Canyon County, CA) nearby should I choose to use him after the intitial warranty expires. I also went on YELP.com and researched the two factory dealerships nearest to me and found that the majority of owners had negative experiences with both. Lastly, the car is great after 3K miles. Cornering and ride quality (even in Sport mode) are terrific. I love our new Mini.
