2017 Mini Countryman

Has anyone done a test drive of the new model yet? Thinking of leasing one, would like to get your opinions.

Fun cars but MINI reliability is one the worst in the business. We used to have a Clubman and the reliability wasn't great in the 3 years we leased it. Switched and handles broke off, cylinder was misfiring when we returned it, run flat tires were awful, needed premium but didn't put out much power, stupid big sunroof had no way to completely shade it.

If you're leasing one, it's probably fine as long as you're willing to put up with a few reliability issues here and there. I have always liked Mini, just a shame about their poor quality/reliability. The 2017 Countryman looks like an awesome car.
