Pros and cons of the Mini Cooper. This is a fun car to cruise around town.

2011 MINI Cooper S

The Mini Cooper is a great around town kind of car, if the weather is nice. If there is rain or it is slick outside it is not the best. If you live in an area where it snows then this is not the car for you. Traction in the snow is not good. The technology is somewhat outdated now. It does not have gps or a USB port. It has seat warmer but not seat coolers that most newer cars have. It does have the cigarette outlets so you can make due with those. It also has a headphone jack that you can play music through. It is very comfortable inside. Mini coopers seem very small but once you are sitting in the car it is actually very roomy. My husband who is 6'2 has plenty of room above his head when sitting in the car. The back seat is kind of a waste. No one can fit back there because there is no room for ones legs. I usually put the seats down and use it for my purse and backpack. This works out well for me because I don't need to put kids in the car but if you have children the Mini Cooper is not practical

Reliable compact car with upgraded features, great gas mileage, & parkability.

2011 MINI Cooper

I like numerous things about my Mini Cooper including how easy it is to park, the speaker sound system, heated seats, gas mileage, and the sport mode feature. I would actually prefer to have a four door vehicle with more space. The other challenge I have realized is the difficulty I experience as far as smoothness of ride especially on roads with potholes like Chicago or Detroit. I have had to have the air conditioning fixed on the vehicle so far and a tire replaced due to hitting a pothole. The heated seats are almost too warm on the highest setting and there is not really any type of center console space. I do like the mood lighting feature in the cabin however and the ability to put the rear seats down to gain extra room.

Super fun conversation starter with a hefty maintenance price tag

2011 MINI Cooper Base

Overall, I have loved my experience with my Mini Cooper. It drives well, has fantastic gas Mileage for long trips, and is always a conversation starter in a group. The only real negative I can think of is the cost of the maintenance, however the maintenance costs are on par with what one would expect from BMW vehicles. While regular upkeep is necessary for the longevity of any vehicle, it adds up quickly. It seems that an oil change is never just an oil change when I take my car in for service.
