Reviews for Mini Cooper
Cool clown car
I went in pretty much knowning I wanted a mini cooper. I was able to find a nice 2004 with what I wanted. One of the main things is I had to get a manual transmission as I heard the CVTs from that year are notorious for going out early. I'm able to get around ~350 miles per tank if I'm doing a lot of highway driving. One thing I like is the on board computer will calculate your average MPG as you drive. Straight, flat highway I can get about 36 mpg. Overall my mix of driving leaves me at ~30 mpg through the life of a tank. It is a mini cooper so the trunk space is pretty limited. I'm 6 ft 1 though and driving it is still plenty comfortable. It has pretty tight suspension and you feel every bump in the road. Whether or not that is a pro or con is open to interpretation. Shortly after I got it I had some issues with the power steering going in & out. They weren't able to reproduce the problem when I brought it in but has been holding up since so I'll just keep my fingers crossed on that one.
Great rare find, the ultimate fun car
i would definitely recommend this car to anyone looking for something different. As you can probably guess, minis are small but they are a smooth, fun ride and you can park just about anywhere! So far I have had no problems with the convertible except that sometimes the hatch on the roof doesn't deal properly and makes a small whistling sound over 50 MPH and id also like to point out that there is a slight blind spot towards the back ends of the car while the top is up. Overall, it is a fun, zippy, easy to drive car that will definately add a little something to your life.
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.
