Regrets, I have them

I’ve had this car 5 months and it took a solid 30 days for me to realize I had made a big mistake. I hate the car and I’m stuck with my poor choices for the time being. Small and just many dumb little things about the car that drive me nuts. Cabin noise is excessively loud. The only thing I enjoy is the handling. It’s an All 4 and handles and takes turns like a champ. Other than that it’s all hate. Extremely overpriced little thing. If you have a family or dogs don’t buy. It’s just too small. Learn from my massive financial mistake.

What a blast!

My third Mini, the first two being hard tops. The Countryman is larger, sits higher and obviously has more cargo capacity. BUT it is just as fun as its little sibling. I have the S with a six speed, Harmon Kardon sound, HID headlights, rain sensing wipers and the split back seat (4 seater) instead of the bench back seat. I love the six speed but then again I loved the automatic in my hardtop S so I don't think you can go wrong either way. This car makes getting from A to B even if it is a long drive fun and it looks good doing it!


  • Dashboard: Well laid out, hey it does not look like anything else!
  • Ride and Handling: Tight handling and excellent steering wheel feel. Higher ride hight makes it even more enjoyable.
  • Interior Space: Lots of headroom, well laid out and more spacious than you would imagine from the outside.


  • Cabin Noise: Run flat tires are noisy- not a fault of the design but the tire sidewalls and stiffness
  • Fuel Economy: Actually gets great gas mileage but the tank is very small so the frequent fill ups always make me think this thing is sucking down gas - its not...

MINI for life!

Never owned a MINI before, but have always wanted one. This car has all the options, the style, luxury, and dependability that I could ever want in a car. It’s super sporty and pretty quick for a small 4 cylinder. It turns heads and gets compliments always! I’m a Lyft and Uber driver and my passengers are always amazed at the space, comfort, and aesthetic vibe the car exudes. It’s more than just a MINI to me, now it’s a lifestyle. MINI FOREVER! Thanks to Carmax, I was easily placed into one of my forever dream cars at an affordable price.
