Pros

Summertime and High Mileage with plenty of REV!

Cons

Snow and Bumpy Roads.

My Mini Max — Best car for Summers in New Mexico...Hands Down. It turns heads especially with the top down and with the Harmon Kardon sound system it is fun to zoom down the highway with my tunes. Alternatively it is the worst card for New Mexico's gravel/dirt roads or harsh snowy winters. Not a snow car at all. Right now...I love it....Summertime with high gas prices=I am in love with my MINI MAX.

Most Fun In A Car — Think of the last time you were in a go cart at a track and how much fun you had and how disappointed you were that you had to pay another 6bucks to ride again. now imagine that even at todays prices 6 bucks will give you about 40miles of go carting. the mini cooper s is a go cart that is much more cost effective.
