2005 Mini Cooperfreonirons - Nashville, TN02/26/2009
The MINI Cooper is a sweet, tasty morsel of a vehicle and makes one feel like every other car on the road is just trying to be as awesome. They are great on gas, extremely easy to drive, and one of the most comfortable rides i've ever had. The only problem I have seen so far is that they are very expensive to maintain, and you need to be very careful with them. Standard things like oil changes, tires, plugs, etc. are very costly but they are also not needed as frequent as other vehicles. They often contain a lot of defective parts that can be replaced for free by MINI under warranty so always take it to the dealership. Other shops rarely have mechanics trained to work on MINIs and you will end up spending way more than you should, and not know about recalls and things you can get replaced for free. Expect to spend about 2-3,000 a year on repairs, but you'll enjoy every minute you own this vehicle.
Love my Mini more every day!

The longer I have my Mini, the more I love her! A few of the best qualities I have listed below:
*Fabulous gas mileage!! I have cut my gas costs in half!
*Can park anywhere. You know those parking spots you find in a crowded parking lot that are too little for anyone to park in? The Mini can get in there.
*More roomy than you think. She is great for tailgating too! I fit a 4x2 table, 8x8 canopy, 2 chairs, bags of food and a soft sided cooler...plus a guest in the front seat!
*The personality factor can't be beat! I smile every morning walking out to my Mini to go to work!
*Super fun to drive with the top up or down!
A Mini is definitey worth a test drive! Take one out today!
