2009 Mini CooperBilly Boyer - Chesapeake, VA07/01/2016
Most fun car I have owned to date. I also own a 1986 BMW 325 with a 2.7 stroker motor and 2000 328Ci and it blows both of them out of the water. The turbo provides a fantastic amount of power to the front wheels. I didn't anticipate liking fwd but with the limited slip differential my car has it really pulls through turns. 180 hp and 180 tq in a small hatchback is loads of fun. 6 speed transmission. Very economical on gas, averaging 35 mpg. I'm 6'1" and there is still extra headroom.
It's a 10 year old car. What can you expect.

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.

Sure, it's a small car. It looks different. But that's what makes a Mini so memorable. It doesn't have a lot of space but more than enough for a couple of weekend bags and a few cases of wine. Its engine won't out-muscle the monsters from Detroit but do you really want to base your own performance and identity on something so...inflated?
Borrowed from the Brits and born of a unique engine, the Mini is a sensible car with a growing following of loyal supporters. It drives like a go-kart and when was the last time someone was miserable after driving one of those? Exceptional handling, better-than-average gas mileage, and a style that defies most labels, this is a car for the individual.
