Pros

That it is fun to drive, you always get tons of attention, and it's customizable.

Cons

The local dealer isn't the greatest, but maybe when MINI has it's own service area it'll be better.

25

The Most Fun Car Ever!! — It's a fun car that goes fast, handles amazingly well and gets good gas mileage. Also the insurance is considered a compact economy car so it's inexpensive to insure. I really love my car, and as with any car there are always some problems, but everything has been minor.

Come On, Not A Bad Thing To Say About It — Doing 50000+ miles a year, not the natural choice, but handles like a go-kart and with a few extras it makes it quite civilised. Cruise control is the best feature :-)

Pros

The supercharger whine when going through the gear and also the tight suspension. You also gotta love the retro interior.

Cons

None.

A Smal Car With Lots Of Fun Inside — This car would seem to be cramped however the Mini Cooper offers plenty of room even with the top up. Plus the tight suspension with the whining supercharger makes this car a pleasant performer!

Great City Car... — This MINI is perfect for tight parking spaces and zipping around the city...as long as there are no potholes. The engine pulls this car around nicely (mit JCW CAI) and handles the turns with confidence, just don't hit any potholes or you will lose a filling!
