It is really fun to drive, can't remember to use the manual mode, not just the automatic mode.

I love the handling of the car (it is like a race car.) I l love the overall style (it is a convertible), the hot orange color, and that the roof opens part way. I enjoy that it can be driven in manual mode as well as automatic. I dislike that acceleration is poor in automatic, that it does not have power seats, is noisy, and the stereo is not wireless. In addition, being a 2005, it does not have all of the new safety and "self-driving" features of newer cars.

This is a backup vehicle. Strictly a point-a to point-b car only. I am over it.

Everything is falling apart. The ac compressor fell out, so it is not repairable. The stereo does not work. The makeup mirrors have both fallen off of the visors. And the ceiling liner is falling out. There are many creeks and random noises while driving. I can feel every bump on the road. The back seat is completely inhabitant with adults in the front. And although it head ok has mileage, it only takes premium. So it is still pricey!

- Ronny S

Recommend later mini models.

Power steering pump needs to be replaced and mini had a recall on this issue but my year was not included on the recall. Had a recall on the passenger side airbag and took it to a mini dealer and they have me a loaner and fixed the issue with no problem. This car drives great handles great. Stick shift gives it more power. It scoots.
