2013 Mini CooperPat Pomrenke - Houston, TX01/16/2017
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.
Why didn't I do this sooner?
2012 Mini CooperNorm Collins - San Antonio, TX04/04/2016
Even though I am 6'2", I easily fit in the Mini. Now, no one can sit behind me so basically I have a three seater. Driving a Mini is a blast. It's kind of like driving a sports car. Wait... it really is. I loved my F1 50 until I had to go to the store and park it in the parking lot or in the garage, go to the gas station, pay the monthly bill, or go slowly around corners.
A must own, but VERY expensive out of warranty
2010 Mini CooperAlexander M - Coral springs, FL07/19/2015
Yes but only if you can buy extended warranty. With the seats down, I've loaded a large Costco shopping cart woth of itmes! Great manual transmission. Comfortable seats and great heat/air conditioing. Top goes up/down quickly and keeps out elements very well.
BMW quality at a fraction of the price
Good gas mileage
More fun than one should legally have with cloths on
Handling, breaking and mechanical feel is top notch
BMW cost for all repairs: $180 oil change, $800 break job, etc
Must use Premium gas, so this off-sets gas savings
Base sound system is the worst sounding of any car i've owned; get harmon kardon system as aftermarket is hard to install and expensive
Rear visibility poor
Fair resale value
