Mini masters the balance of fuel efficiency and power. Mini changed to more reliable engines starting with the 2011 models. Sport mode is a blast! Comfortable, stylish and super fun to drive!

Great looking car! Low miles and well kept....exactly what was looking for. Dealer was fun, easy to talk with. I bought the car. Hope it turns out to be a keeper because I like cars I can keep for years and years. My Volvo has 280,000 miles and still going strong.

Great Little Driver — Definitely a driver's car. Excellent mileage, tight handling, responsiveness, classic Euro-motor sensibility. The turbo gets you MOVING, and the stick shift is tight. You think about where you want to go, and the car goes there. Some quirky styling, especially with the radio, but you get to know it quickly and it becomes second-nature. Solid, efficient, practical, fun-to-drive commuter or long distance car.

Pros: Outstanding handling, drivability, fuel economy

Cons: No significant complaints.

Fun, Small Car For City Or Road Driving. — This is a small, very fun car. I needed to be able to fit in a very small garage space and drive up and down the hills of San Francisco to get to work. This car is easy to find parking, fun to drive, and gets good gas mileage. I've been able to get as high as 40 MPG on the highway. The power is good enough to get up most hills in 2nd gear. As for cons, because this car is a convertible, there are severe blind spots when the top is up. Another con: my teenage daughter doesn't like riding in the backseat for long periods of time. Overall, I really like this car for commuting and taking road trips with 1-2 people.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, easy to find parking for, drives well.  Excellent car for road trips with the wife, or taking the kids to soccer games.  Gets great gas mileage.  The price was excellent.   

Cons: Large blind spots, not much leg room in the backseat for adults.

My Love Affair With A Mini Bimmer! — There is absolutely nothing to dislike about a MINI except the price, They are still in high demand. All the things you do to a car means nothing when you go to trade it in, though it does maintain it's value pretty well. These cars are well built, handle like a dream and are as quick as you want them to be. I still love them and that's my problem, if I had a lot of money, I would need a big garage. When I fall in love with a car, I'm like a school kid, infatuated by the great looks and sensuality that they have. This car had handling and beauty with control in spades.

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

Pros: Handles like a go-kart, looks great, has many followers (MINIACS)

Cons: None

Fun Sleeper Car — I really like that the car is small. It makes it lightweight so the power it comes with makes it a pretty quick car. It also has a really nice exhaust note which surprises many unassuming people. The power coming out of turns is unmatched in this class. There is nothing to really complain about the car. I guess you can say it needs a bit more room, but the point of the car is to be small, not a people mover. Although, the rear interior did surprise some people. It was a lot bigger than people thought it was.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nimble, Great handling, Pretty good power out of turns, easy to park

Cons: Not much cargo space.

It's A Great Car If One Wants Something Small, Very Sporty, Comfortable And Economical — Really nothing. This would be an especially great car for someone living in a large city. Very maneuverable, easy to park. Typically get 25 +mpg in town and high 30's on the highway. This car belonged to my spouse, who recently passed away after a lengthy illness (hence the vey low mileage.)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: This car is a blast to drive.  VERY solid (feels like the BMW-manufactured oriduct that it is.) Drives like a go-cart; great gas mileage; lots of "bells and whistles"; sports suspension, transmission, and shift points;great sound system, drives like a go-cart (yes I know - its worth mentioning twice.) the seats are fantastic - just the right amount of adjustability and support.   MINIs are usually heavily customized.  Even in a city of 4 million, I've yet to see a "twin" of my car.

Cons: Not a lot of from in the back set, but the do fold for down to create surprisingly useful storage.

Amusing — 6,3 Seconds from 0-100 superb interior, everythings matching and maybe even the best car to drive with 211HP a bit expensive however if you buy it the car is super for having fun with it, but it's not very good for utility purposes except maybe transportation ;)

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

Pros: the acceleration *_*

Cons: that it only does 250km/h
