Great Commuter Or City Car — This car is incredibly reliable. I have a long commute to work, and this thing is great on gas and handles smoothly--it makes the laborious drive much more pleasant. I would highly recommend this car to anyone who needs a good commuter car, or who just needs a great city car. Its the perfect solution to the sparse parking in SF--it fits in just about anywhere.

Junk!! — Do not buy! Over priced miniature BMW. Don't let the styling fool you. These things are known to have a sundry of life threatening issues. I was told these burn oil at a fast rate. Oil changes are required every 15,000 miles. I had mine changed every 3 (this is $120 with synthetic oil) and was told each time that there was NO oil in the engine each time. There is no warning light. This is unacceptable. My engine finally failed at 57,000 miles and MINI didn't offer me any financial assistance because I was not the first owner and because my car was now out of warranty. This was my 4th "BMW" and the 10th in my family. WE will never buy BMW again. They are amazing vehicles when new but turn to JUNK after 50k miles. So sad.

Fun Car To Drive — Love the zip and cornering. 6speed is responsive, had supercharger instead of turbo, turbo is faster. I averaged 27mpg, newer models get alot better. Terrible resale value since market is over run with used minis. The S is better car.

Great Little Car! Good Every Day Driver — We use the Mini every day as a commuter and it excels for that! Great in the snow and super fun to drive. Handles great and is very quick. Feels bigger inside and can haul lots of stuff. Just an overall great car.

The looks, the handling, the good gas mileage

Cons

The useless back seats, and the insanely high parts cost.

Fun Car! — It's not the most practical car around, but it's a fun ride and it gets great gas mileage. Just keep in mind that it uses BMW parts, though, so expect a BMW sized repair bill when you take it in for service!

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

Fun-to-drive Factor Is Amazing With This Car And Will Keep You Grinning Long After You Step Out. — Car is an absolute blast to drive. Mileage is great for being turbocharged and handling is great too. Maintenance can be a little pricey, especially if you drive the car hard. Needs premium gas so that can cancel out the savings from the MPG.

2007 Mini Cooper S — I could not be happier with my car. A MINI Cooper is a car for life. These things are practically indestructible! I can take turns going way faster *within the speed limit* than anyone else on the road. You can do so much more with this car because of it's low center of gravity and clever design of placing the wheel's at the very outer corners. The handling is incredible no matter if you get an automatic or a stick shift. It accelerates at a faster rate than you would guess because of a powerful engine and light chassis design. The styling of the new 2008s is slightly different than the 2007s *which is why I bought an '07 instead of waiting another month for an '08, the '07 is more attractive". The 2007s and later are also 2" longer than any previous year which provides that much more trunk space which is greatly appreciated in a car as small as this. If you're looking for a car with high mileage but don't want one of those nasty hybrids, a MINI is the car for you. I get 40 mpg on the freeway and around 32 in the city in an automatic. A stick shift gets between 3 and 5 miles more per gallon. The bottom line is this car is an over-grown, street legal go-kart that is incredibly fun to drive. But people with lead feet beware...THIS CAR CAN GET YOU IN TROUBLE!! Take if from someone who knows. ;D

It's Crazy Awesome — Most fun I have ever had driving a car. I would only wish a mid size SUV was made to handle as well as this car. The gas mileage is exceptional. Anyone who loves these cars should own one in their lifetime!! :)
