Reviews for 2009 Mini Cooper
My Clubman S
This is one of the most exhilarating little cars that I ever driven. It handles like a go-cart car on the street. The ride is a little noisy at some points when riding over rough surfaces with the run flats but it's liveable. I'm quite surprise of the numerous recalls on the vehicle but that's with most cars these days.The gas mileage is adequate for my needs but if you're looking for 38+ or better then the Mini Clubman is not the car for you. My best gas consumption was 29.1 miles per gal and that's driving over 70+. The car is quite solid but there are some squeaks and tweedy bird sounds in the cabin while driving but they are managable and they can be eliminated by the dealer. Overall the car is a charm to have. You will not outrun a 2010 Porsche 911 but I promise, you will have just as much fun if not more for less.
The model I got is the Mini Cooper Works, and it's a sweet car to drive. The acceleration response is very quick. I owned another turbo charged engine prior to this, and there was significant lag. The Mini has very little. This car is a manual transmission and it shifts very smooth, with good gear ratios, in my opinion. The braking is a bit touchy, and for some reason seems to squeak first thing in the morning as I back out of the garage. The stereo is a bit confusing to manipulate, (especially with the USB connection, searching for songs, etc.) and lacks quality sound, but I plan to upgrade the system. There are a lot of neat little features on the car that come with the convenience package. I'm not usually into that stuff, but when buying a used car, sometimes that's what you get. I have found some of these gadgets really cool, like the keyless start/lock option, auto headlights and wipers. I tried unsuscessfully to get the remote door opener synched with the car, (so you don't need to have the opener), but that's about the only problem that I have had with it. I purchased the vehicle for it's performance, handling, and fuel economy, and in those regards this car doesn't disappoint. Even driving it fairly hard in the city I'm getting 30 MPG. The only tough thing about driving it is keeping the speed down. Once you start driving it all other cars on the road seem to be going really slow, and become obstacles. It's the kind of car that you want to drive, and you will quickly be volunteering to drive to pick up lunch, or groceries.
This Mini is a Biggy.
This is the second car I have bought from carmax and both times was a very positive experience. My car is a Mini Cooper convertible and I never had a car that is so much fun. Some cars you buy for transportation and some for fun, this is the best of both worlds. Your internet website is great and your staff is always a great help.
