Pros

Love this car!! The drive is like no other, grounded like a go-cart and as much fun.  You will never drive another car after you have driven a Mini!

Cons

None!  There is a little more attention required but that would be true of anything of quality.  This is a drivers car not just transportation.

The Italian Job! — I love the firm steering and the feel of a manual with a the ease of an automatic. The design is perfect, from the smiling grill to the winged logo. It is a pure delight to start the day and end the day with the smile of a Mini!

Pros

Excellent Car! Can't say enough. Handles fantastic, go-cart style. Plenty of power. Luxury where needed.

Cons

Not a family car, but that's not why you buy a MINI. There's not tons of cargo space, but again, that's not why you buy a MINI.

Put's A Smile On My Face Every Time I Drive It. — Everything about this car is fun and exciting. From the 6 speed manual transmission to the xenon head lights, there is not a bad thing I have to say about this car. The color scheme always catches the eye with the black top and black stripes. The amount of power and speed that you can get out this car is amazing, and STILL get greater than 30 MPG is awesome. This whole package is rare and perfect to drive around in style.

Fun — I bought this Mini new in 2007 and thought I would keep it for three years. It has been nearly seven years and I now plan to garage until my 16-year old daughter "deserves" it. I want a new 2014....

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

Pros

Handling is superior to anything I have ever driven. This is a street legal go kart that makes commuting to work fun. Good gas MPG, and reliable engine (made by BMW) make this a great buy, no wonder there are Mini-Cooper auto clubs across the USA they know what a great car this is.

Cons

Space. Don't plan any camping trips or long road trips with this unless you naturally travel light. Cargo room once you drop the back seats is adequate for one person to move a few few things like luggage and a small pet but thats about it.

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.

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.

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!! :)
