Not Worth It! — I was so excited to get my mini convertible! It was everything I had been looking for in a car and I really loved everything about it. Then, after a year, the honeymoon was definitely over. Long story short... Mpg plummeted, it breaks down every 3 months and I had to buy the extended warranty to keep up (but there is a deductible every time you bring it in!). In the past two years I have spent over $4000 in repairs and maintenance (with warranty!). It depreciated so much that I owe $10,000 more than the blue book values it at (and I bought it for below blue book!) so I can't unload it. It is still very cute and I get a lot of compliments but I tell people to run. Is a rolling money pit death trap.

Pros: Love the way the car looks and I like go-kart feel

Cons: You feel every bump, breaks down every three months, mpg no where near what was I told, repair costs are huge and depreciates in value rapidly.

Like Driving A Go Cart — I would recommend a Mini Cooper. Our experience has been good and we never get tired of driving it! Its just such a cool little car I never really get tired of looking at it either. In the future as our family grows and moves on I would certainly get another one, but trying to put several teenagers in the car is not real practical for now.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A blast to drive, good looks, a real attention getter, great MPG, easy maintainence, Did I say a BLAST to drive!

Cons: Harsh ride. No center arm rest.

Love It! — Bigger than it looks inside, handling is fantastic, love the gas mileage- 40mpg+ (highway). Fits in small parking spaces, comfortable on long drives. Visibility is great and I love the fact that the tach is in front of me not hidden someplace. A true driver's car!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Bigger than it looks inside, handling is fantastic, love the gas mileage- 40mpg+ (highway).  Fits in small parking spaces, comfortable on long drives.

Cons: Needs a little more power but that's what you get for this trim level.

One Hot Mini — We liked everything about it. It's just a cool car and fun to drive. Love to drive it on a cold day with the seat warmers on. We get lots of thumbs up driving around town. Most importantly, my wife LOVES it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: This was a great mid-life crisis car for my wife.  She loves to drive it fast.  Great city car.  Great mileage.

Cons: Small trunk.

Mini Rules — I would buy another MINI in a moment. Makes driving pleasurable, lots of complements, great value overall. It provides handling not know in an inexpensive compact. Dealer are fairly good -but would recommend local service instead. Spend a few bucks customizing - it's fun.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Best commuter car ever designed

Cons: A little hard to see in traffic – for inattentive drivers

Great — The handling is great, especially when you push the "sport" button. It tightens up the handling so it respond more better. Not good for transporting people in back seats unless the are small. Small cargo space in trunk but we took the dog

Pros: FUN

Cons: Not good for 2 with 2 sets of golf clubs

Great Car! — There isn't anything that I did not like about this car. The only thing I regret is not getting the bluetooth installed. I would have loved it. I receive compliments about the vehicle from friends and strangers. They love it both men and woman. They compliment the rims on the vehicle, and the choice of black on black.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Small sports car, fast, reliable, no maintenance issues. Never had to take it to the shop except for the regular oil and car check. The car is perfect for anyone.

Cons: I had one low tire problem in the three years that I have had the car. Besides that nothing else.

It Is All Mine! — Yes! FUN to drive. Fun to own. BMW quality. Great little chassis on this car. Small diesel gives more power than we need. Can option these cars to individual desires. Mine will suit no one else likely. So will keep it forever!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun! Economical, Well built quality. A keeper!

Cons: Back seat! What back seat?

Buy It. —

Performance- The performance is amazing. Because the car weighs next to nothing, the little 4 cylinder can propel this car forward at a ridiculous rate. It also handles like a go-kart, there is a reason why this car was featured the way it is in The Italian Job. Build Quality- The car is built really well. Everything feels solid and there are no wonky plastic parts. Appearance- It looks like nothing on the road and with all the customization options, you can really make your MINI a unique car. The interior takes some getting used to but after using the car for a few weeks you will be able to use the controls blindfolded. Cost of Ownership- With a great maintenance program from BMW (who owns MINI) the cost of owning a MINI only boils down to tires and fuel. Unfortunately it runs on premium so your trips to the pump may be a little pricey. But considering it gets 40+ mpg, you wont be making those trips often. Fun factor- The MINI is so much fun. Both from a performance perspective and from a social perspective. Take a test drive to see what I mean about the performance. Socially you will experience a huge network of owners from all over the US.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, unique, high mpg, customizable, comfortable, fast.

Cons: Backseats are small even for a little person, fitting things in the trunk can be tricky.

Mcs — fun to drive. premium quality.. different. performance. is good for what it is. can't beat Turbo 175hp.. Appearance. wished for more kits to use. Cost of ownership. car sucks when you pay base price, but options can be expensive.. figure out what is more important then buy it. or just order the way you want it. just make sure you have the cash to do it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Gas Mileage, parking,

Cons: back seats. why even bother..
