    My 03 justa had a rust issue under the driver side taillight about 3 years ago. The rust warranty had run out, but MINI said they would still "fix" it. Well the fix only lasted 2 years, and when I brought it back they said they should have replaced the whole left rear panel. They would see what they could do about it, well besides getting put on a back burner, and me being busy, nothing came of it till Poco got hit by a shopping cart flying in a 40 MPH wind. Punched a hole right where the rust was. This could not be fixed as the area was rotten, and insurance said they would not replace the whole panel. Went back to MINI and Corporate said they would cover 50% of replacing the panel.

    So between what the insurance paid out, and MINI covering 50%, Poco made me $500:Thumbsup:. Not bad for a 9 year old car with 115,000 mile on it.
