"This is a solid car with great driving dynamics. It is both fast and economical. Except for some hard-to-use controls (heater, A/C and radio), it is a pleasure around town and for short freeway trips. Not so great on long trips - noise and ride become tiring."

"As a college student, I needed something that got good fuel economy, and was fun, and my MINI Cooper S is the perfect car. It's surprising how much stuff I can fit in it, and how good it is in the snow of MI's UP. I average more than 35MPG with it and love the turbo engine's grunt. I love the uniqueness of the car, and it is instantly recognizable in the parking lot. Mine has been very reliable, with only having the change the front sway bars. The dealer did it for a reasonable price, but the parts were fairly expensive. The only other downside is the lack of space for rear passengers, but if the front passengers slide forward a little, there is adequate space."

"I don't know what you call the special lights but they are above the rear view mirror. You can change them from blue to pink, purple or orange. And it has full floor mats."

"My car is only 6 years old and needs a new transmission because just one part can't be fixed. Have to replace the entire transmission. This is on top of other problems I've had. Many plastic pieces within the car have broken, and repairs are too expensive."
