Great Sporty Convertible — Love the drive, especially with the top down. Great gas mileage, very dependable, a great strong ride. Also great Turing radius and you can park almost anywhere. You can't move your apartment with it though. But enough room to bring laundry home from college.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good gas mileage , sporty, convertible , great handling

Cons: Small trunk

Cool Car — There is a handful of cars that look very different from anything else on the road. They attract attention mostly for their snappy styling, the Mini Cooper Convertible is one of them. Solid BMW design and manufacturing, from the serious convertible top. It's fully automatic, requiring only the push of a button to stow it, and has a glass window, to the firm drive and great tight turns.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Sporty, convertible with great handling.  Always fun to drive.

Cons: Small tunk

Mini Beamer — Love, love, love this car. It is the coolest car I have ever had, I've had it 7 years and I am ready for another MINI or BMW. I love the quality and design of these cars. They are BMW standards, no skimping on the luxury and the safety ratings are the best in it's class.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great gas mileage, very nimble, and very fun to drive!

Cons: Back seats are so small and cramped. I find that laying the seats down make it more usable when going to the store, etc..

So Much Fun. — We have had this car since it was brand new and love it. It is a super-fun way to travel, especially if you spend time in urban areas. Of course, it's not suited for a large family, nor for cargo, but you probably knew that already! It has handling and German build quality comparable to cars twice its price!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The most fun hatchback you can find.

Cons: Maintenance can get expensive.

Over All Fun, Fun, Fun! — The name Cooper is highly regarded in Mini circles, what with world-championship racing car producer John Cooper having lavished his skills on the original car and BMW wisely reestablishing the name Cooper S for the hot version of its latter-day Mini. Super fun to drive! Really fast and easy to maneuver though traffic. Flashy and sporty. Limited edition, so very few on the road.

Pros: Easy to park, good gas milage.

Cons: race car

More Mini's Please~ — the green mini is cute, but in this environment (dusty and moon rocks) is unhappy, as I've got to slolem past boulders and craters, actually dodged a crater, then smashed the passenger mirror into a blue recycling bin, the bin tipped over and the mirror spider cracked...this town and the MINI are having problems getting along~ the town.....Clearlake, CA. , the poorest town in northern California...there ain't on streetlights, there ain't no good roads....it's a bust automotively...now if a 4x4 would be right at home here~

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

Pros: zippy~ wants to go faster~

Cons: too low to the ground-

Yeah Mini!!! — I love this car, but hard for it to be my only car. Need a little more room for camping & other activities. Very dependable, always friendly. I love that the automatic also has an option for manual shift. The seats are plenty comfortable for a long road trip.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun, fun, fun to drive! Excellent mileage and still has super-charged power. Go-kart handling. Easy to park in dense downtown areas. I drove it in deep snow with no problems in Seattle's snowpocalypse, but then again I grew up in CO. Very comfortable on a 2-day road trip.

Cons: Not a big family car of course. I went camping in it a couple times and it was a bit tight with all my gear + dog.

Love My Mini — I love my little car! It gets great gas mileage and handles wonderfully in the curves. I love the Harman Kardon sound system,it really rocks. Even though the car is a 4 cylinder and not even an S model, it has really good acceleration. It is a joy to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Drives great, good power for a 4 cylinder and great gas mileage.

Cons: Not alot of room in the back.
