Cons

Extremely Small...

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

GO CART

Cons

Small Trunk

Great Car — Its a GO CART. Should have gotten the S though, but this think still has lots of pep and performance. Storage space is an issue, however, with the two front seats folded down there is lots of room for gear. Its really a 4 seater with no storage, or a 2 seater with storage.

Mini Coopers Are Awesome...heres Why. — Our car is great. Mini Coopers are very thrilling cars. There fun to drive, and drive very well. There perfromance is not fantastic but at the size and weight it is, it doesnt matter, you can still do 150mph at a 183bhp Mini Cooper S. It sticks to the ground like super glue, its very quick and fast. Vey small on the outside, but very very roomy on the inside. the current driver is 6' 3" and is 240 pounds. He has no problem with the mini. Plenty of Space. Its a great car over all.

Cool looking, sporty, fun to drive, faster than you would think.

Cons

Small, loud and bumpy (probably the run flat tires).

Anna Banana's Car — She loves it and it fits her well. Makes me a little nervous because its so small, but fuel economy is great and it's unique. I think she might even get another one next!

Go-kart For Grown-ups — Quirky but lovable modern, reliable, German-bred LBC. 5-star performance rating is for handlingand braking only, as acceleration is good considering the tiny engine size, but just OK by sportscar standards.

Driving It Is Sex! — I love this car more than anything it can handle turns beautiful, gets up and goes fast, small enough to weave through the tightest traffic. It's a beauty!

Pros

Well, there are too many for me to go through t them in detail.

Cons

The brakes are way to loose. It isn't necessarily something that sucks but it can be definitely be improved.

35

Small, Fast, Beautiful — The Mini Cooper S perfectly combines speed and beauty. In addition, it fits anywhere and can get away with traffic because of its small size.
