Used Mini Cooper S red exterior in Dulles, VA for Sale
Reviews for Mini Cooper
This is a fun car!
I enjoy the look, the easy handling, the comfort and the fact that it is a manual transmission. The gas mileage is phenomenal, I get 36 mpg on the highway and around 35 mpg around town. There is plenty of legroom in the front seats, a little less in the back.
Mini Cooper S
Got my MCS in Nov07 and have loved every minute of driving it. Its a peppy little bugga and although small on the outside once you settled inside it seems no more cramped than any other car. Took a trip the other day with me and two other guys, average builds, and everyone was plenty comfortable while traveling. Yes it has runflat tires so the ride can get bumpy if your roads are not quite so nice. I drive around and through DC and have been on all kinds of surfaces and it doesn't bother me, but its definitely a preference thing. For the performance, quality and getting +30mpg hwy I don't really know if there is a better car. Only I would consider is if you need cargo space with passengers as when you are able to have the rear seats folded there is plenty but if you had friends in the back you are limited.
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.
