Default Advice on 2005 Mini s

I have a 2005 mini s, with 66000 miles. During the last year, trouble with clutch (costly to repair), oil leak, now the power steering seems to be freezing. Time to trade? Any opinions?

the power steering is not a bad fix it could just be the fan , if it's the electric power steering the price is up , you can buy a reman one that has a lifetime warranty ,
I bought the reman unit and had a local shop get the mini fan and do the install $800 total

Check for wear on the top. Sometimes, if it's driven with the top down often enough, small areas can rub and wear through. Many people don't put the top down all that often, though.
