TO THE EDITOR:
Richard Truett made comments about what could be done to ensure Mini's future in the United States, which, for 90 percent of the piece, I agree with ("How BMW can fix Mini, ensure future in North America," autonews.com, June 25).
But he forgot to mention that today's automobiles are so laden with froufrou, gewgaws, doodads and loads of devices that make a car expensive to own, service and repair. Mini has many proprietary tools that add to this issue.
But I agree that Mini should give their cars a KISS: Keep it Simple, Stupid.
