I Say Yes! — It had awesome acceleration and handled beautifully around corners at higher speeds. The build was sturdy and rarely needed repairs. The supercharger on this little monster was amazing compared to the newer turbocharged version i tried! As for its appearance.... Its a Mini nuff'said!

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.

Great Car For The Year, Miles, And Price! — This car is so cute, I loved driving it but it's time to expand. Having 1 more child is nice but the car I will miss. The car has all the things you'll need. Long road trips is were she shines also.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Control is great on this car.

Cons: Nothing

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

2006 MINI Cooper S HatchbackReview

Farfegnugen For Real — The 2006 model had enough seasons under its belt that teh little naggy things have been worked out and the new large MINI (oxymoronic, isn't it?)is losing its direction. The Cooper S is not particularily an economy car as it has peppy torque and horsepower. It is a great city car and a very good long drive car. The car may accommodate some drivers up to 6'9" (I am 6'5" and drive it easily) something a 5-series BMW cannot! Quality is quite high, but the run-flat tyres are expensive and wear mightily. Very fun to drive and good value retention are coupled with reasonable mileage.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Room, fuel use, comfort all tops

Cons: Torque-steer

My Designer Friend From Caddy Stated That Mini's $20,000 Exotic Car! That Says It All! — awesome car. I haven't had any other problems other than clutch noise which is really not a problem. great build quality and fun factors second to none! I know there're cars out there capable of beating JCW on tracks but from personal experience I owned M3, RX-7, 335i, Civic Si, C350 and etc in narrow winding streets of LA.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: any auto enthusist would fall in love with this vehicle instantly.

Cons: none really

Small But Not Too Small.. The New Mini Tops All Other Small Creatures!! — The only thing they could have done was to tighten up the steering.... they tried too hard to make it too much like a BMW which was mistake considering that people who drive a MINI should appreciate the fun in motoring.. not to say it's not fun to motor, it just needs to have tighter steering... overall though I really like it...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: appearance

Cons: gas mileage - sometimes

Fast And Frugal — 130 mph (allegedly) and 34 mpg, but not at the same time. Great acceleration and handling, fun to drive - like a go-cart with a roof. Doesn't like bumpy roads and its not very comfortable to sleep in. Two more words.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast and frugal

Cons: Nothing

Great Car, Rwd Or Awd Would Be Amazing, But... — Supercharged, great performance, its like a go kart on crack, a true BMW under the hood, this thing flies. No Problems, and no cost of ownership so far, I do all the maintenance. I get about 23-25 mpg in the city, and around 30 on the highway, not too bad for a sportscar!

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

Pros: Fun, Sporty, and fairly inexpensive for a BMW sports car

Cons: None
