AOL Autos Says Buy A MINI Cooper New, Not Used

AOL Autos says the MINI is one of ten vehicles that, right now, you should buy new rather than used.  It bases ita position on a Kelley Blue Book report that found 10 vehicles that have just barely more expensive -- or even cheaper -- monthly payments for the new 2012 version of the vehicle versus the used 2011. Here are the MINI's numbers:

MSRP: $19,500 - $24,950
Fuel Economy: 29 mpg City, 37 mpg Highway

Monthly Payment + Fuel (New): $484
Monthly Payment + Fuel (Used): $468

The Mini Cooper is an AOL Autos favorite. You can get the fun to drive, gas sipping 2012 model for only $16 more per month than a 2011.
