Pros

I loved this car... was sooo fun to drive!

Cons

I hated having to sell it!

I Say Yes! — It had awesome acceleration and handled beautifully around corners at higher speeds. The build was sturdy and rarely needed repairs. The supercharger on this little monster was amazing compared to the newer turbocharged version i tried! As for its appearance.... Its a Mini nuff'said!

The Best And Most Fun, Cabrio In It's Class That Money Can Buy — My 2nd MINI- I'm ready for #3 Never used the free maintenance. After 5 years the quality is still tight. Still get looks when driving it. I feel MINI makes a quailty car. I can only hope the new platform is as good, fun and reliable.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

My Designer Friend From Caddy Stated That Mini's $20,000 Exotic Car! That Says It All! — awesome car. I haven't had any other problems other than clutch noise which is really not a problem. great build quality and fun factors second to none! I know there're cars out there capable of beating JCW on tracks but from personal experience I owned M3, RX-7, 335i, Civic Si, C350 and etc in narrow winding streets of LA.

Small But Not Too Small.. The New Mini Tops All Other Small Creatures!! — The only thing they could have done was to tighten up the steering.... they tried too hard to make it too much like a BMW which was mistake considering that people who drive a MINI should appreciate the fun in motoring.. not to say it's not fun to motor, it just needs to have tighter steering... overall though I really like it...

Fast and frugal

Cons

Nothing

Fast And Frugal — 130 mph (allegedly) and 34 mpg, but not at the same time. Great acceleration and handling, fun to drive - like a go-cart with a roof. Doesn't like bumpy roads and its not very comfortable to sleep in. Two more words.

A Well-rounded Everyday Car — This car looks great, i'm always getting second looks. The breaking, acceleration and handling are great as is the gas mileage. The parts seem to last forever! If you like to have fun driving this is the car for you.

Pros

I love this car. It is an absolute blast!! Park it anywhere, great gas mileage, people love to ask me about it. It makes a statement. Everyone should drive a Mini!

Cons

My baby doesn't fit in it, so we have to get a more family oriented car.

Firecracker On Wheels — I love this car. I saved for years to be able to afford it. It is light weight, you can park almost anywhere. I always feel in control, it brakes and handles superbly. Definitely worth the money. It is a driving experience!

Mini Cooper S — Great acceleration. Well built car. Very strong brakes, hugs turns like a champ, and shifts very smooth, if you know a standard transmission. Just some minor (very) sqeaks, nothing big. Looks awesome. Amazingly good gas mileage. This car is absolutely a blast to drive, whether around town, or anywhere. Love It

Love This Car! Sporty, Small, And Unique — I have had this car for two years now. I love to drive it and the energetic little supercharged engine makes any drive thrilling! Stiff suspension smooth acceleration grips the road like a speedo!
