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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I loved this car... was sooo fun to drive!

Cons: I hated having to sell it!

Firecracker On Wheels — I love this car. I saved for years to be able to afford it. It is light weight, you can park almost anywhere. I always feel in control, it brakes and handles superbly. Definitely worth the money. It is a driving experience!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love this car. It is an absolute blast!! Park it anywhere, great gas mileage, people love to ask me about it. It makes a statement. Everyone should drive a Mini!

Cons: My baby doesn't fit in it, so we have to get a more family oriented car.

The Best And Most Fun, Cabrio In It's Class That Money Can Buy — My 2nd MINI- I'm ready for #3 Never used the free maintenance. After 5 years the quality is still tight. Still get looks when driving it. I feel MINI makes a quailty car. I can only hope the new platform is as good, fun and reliable.

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

Pros: Fun- the looks- handling

Cons: none
