Fun factor is off the charts. I bought this car for my wife, who commutes to a part-time job. We already have two other vehicles, so practicality wasn't a concern. She decided she wanted a small convertible and after reading a lot of reviews, this is what we chose. We've had it four months now with no issues. I understand maintenance can be costly on these, but we haven't had a single issue. It gets decent mileage (it would get great mileage but it's so much fun to step on the gas in this thing), it's comfortable, and it is the most fun car I've ever driven, hands down. It has surprising room for the driver and passenger, but the backseat is only good for two mid-size passengers and even then, only for short distances.
2013 and other older years have controls in inconvenient locations. Put a cup in holder and you can't operate windows. Trunk opening so tight. A Kurig will not fit through the opening, that's how tight it is. If you ride around by yourself carting nothing more than a purse or laptop you may like this tiny car, but be sure before you commit. I have to say it is peppy! And of course you can park it anywhere. Good things for sure.
You have to be ready for an old car to have a few problems no matter where you get it. After a few months the Mini came up with some major problems with the oil pressure, and engine light notifications. The fixes weren't cheap either, but this is what you sign on for with any used car. Once the car was repaired it went back to being one of the most fun and exciting cars I've ever driven. Just like any car, keep it maintained and you will have a reliable vehicle to take wherever you need to go. I recommend a Mini Cooper S if you want to have fun while younger there. Fast fun and safe, with a great stereo to listen to along the way.
