Q: Car choices

asked by on

Hi Jeffrey. I am about to buy a new car and I stand for between a Subaru BRZ/Scion FRS and a Mini Cooper S, both used, 2013-2014 with around 40k miles. Which one is the most reliable on mechanics and which is less costly to maintain and repair? (I assume Subaru has a great reputation). Thank you.
