MINI holds a special place in my heart.
My fiancée and I had a MINI Cooper when we first met and liked the close quarters. We actually called it "MINI the love bug." So when that broke down, we had to get a new one. The car we have now also has the turbo and run flat tires added. The car runs very well, even thought there are a decent amount of miles and is about five years old. I'm always worried about any car having a turbo, because it's usually just one more thing to fix, but ours has done excellently, without a hiccup. We really appreciate the quick, responsive boost in speed whenever we need to zoom past anything. It makes dodging in heavy traffic almost effortless as the car is so tiny, but add in the major boost in speed and it's amazing. We have occasionally heard a few squeaks and rattles, but they don't last, and they don't bother us much. The car initially came with run flat tires. With the size of the car, it added a lot of additional road noise, and made you feel every little bump. Once we switched to normal tires, these issues diminished substantially. While it is a fun car to drive, I think that it would be better as a second leisure car for most people, as grocery shopping and trying to cart more than three people gets a little hairy.

I never thought I would like a mini cooper but its small size is perfect for in town living with very little driveway space. The exterior is two toned in ice blue and white with a panoramic sun roof. The performance is very good for a small car. It has great pickup and is very stable at high speeds on the highway. The sound system is adequate for my needs and satellite radio is available. The car does not sit as low as it looks so is not too bad when driving behind larger vehicles. I feel safe in the vehicle. There is good airbag coverage.
