Great bang for the buck!!
I love my Mini Cooper. I chose the base model because the S model has turbo issues that would be expensive to repair. It's very comfortable for it being a 2 door. Spacious and cozy. It travels cross country well and has excellent fuel economy. Gets about 40 miles a gallon. It is a fast accelerating car and it's a 6 speed manual transmission. Definitely a good bang for the buck. Only hard thing is doing household repairs with how tightly compacted everything is under the hood. Overall, good reliable vehicle.
