This is a great city car. When I first purchased it 5 years ago, it had go-kart like handling, and a little bit of punch in the throttle. Over the course of 5 years, little has changed. There are always good and bad points with any car, but with this one in particular, there are many more good than bad. I have driven over 40,000 miles with this car, half of the time spent in the northwest with it's rainy cold conditions, and the other half in the south west desert, with it's hot and dry climate. This car has worked brilliantly, coping with both environments. I paid off my cooper a few months ago, and I'm already trying to talk my wife into a new one. There have been very few maintenance issues, and overall, the car performs like a champ. I only have two complaints after 5 years of owne... (more)
Story
While I have no specific memory of single event, the overall experience I've had with the car has been excellent. Most of my best memories are driving through the wooded areas around my parents house in the northwest. The winding roads with hills made for some very fun, and sometimes scary adventures. Knowing the car has a tenancy to under steer made the turns even more fun.
Pros
The car has a fair amount of pick up and go. I feel the amount of power hasn't really diminished over time. The car handles like a dream. Wherever the steering wheel points, that's where the car goes. There is a good amount of feel in the steering wheel, and I always have a sense of where the car is on the road. I love the 6 speed gear box. I have the manual transmission version, and when I compare it to my previous cars, the transitions between the gears is smooth. I love that the car still makes heads turn when I'm driving. It's not the most unique car anymore, but when I first purchased... (more)
Cons
As I mentioned in the review, the stereo is a bit weak. The main power is focused on the two way, 5 inch speakers in the front. With little effort, this can be rewired to use the 6x9's in the rear. After performing this modification, the sound is much richer, and more pleasant to listen to. Another fault is the combination of their intrusive traction control system, and the 3 season run flat tires. During my second winter in the northwest, there was a pretty solid snow storm. I had a heck of a time getting around town, because the traction control kept kicking in while I was light breaking... (more)

I love my new MINI Cooper. It is truly a great car. I love the design so much. One of the things that I feel makes this car unique is that the it has such an interesting paint design. It is red but also has white strips going up the front, which I absolutely love. I was even able to get mirror accessories that look like a checker board, black and white. The car has had absolutely no technical or mechanical problems so far, which is definitely a huge plus. Also, the gas mileage is good. The gas mileage is about 29 mpg for in city driving and about 40 mpg for driving on the highway. I really love my car and would recommend it to any one I know. While I was happy with my previous car, a Toyota Prius, I love my MINI Cooper even more. My boyfriend will be in the market for a new car soon, a... (more)
Story
The first night my boyfriend and I took this fun car out on the town. It was a really fun night and the first night we had really got to drive in the car together. We took the car downtown to the beach. Then we drove up and down A1A looking at all the scenario. The car was perfectly reliable and provided us with a great way to travel that night. Since then, we have had many more fun experience... (more)
Pros
Pros include the great gas mileage I am able to get with this vehicle. Another pro is that the car is easy to drive and gives a nice smooth ride.
Cons
While I can't think of many, one that does come to mind is that the car is not a hybrid. My previous car was a hybrid, and I did really appreciate how it was better for the environment. I hope in the future they make a MINI Cooper hybrid car.

We've actually purchased three cars from this dealership. They are very friendly, helpful and fun! It's also the closest Mini dealership. We still drove 6+ hours to get there!
