Fun vehicle to drive. However, be prepared for content and costly repairs!

The car is fun to drive and has nice features. That is the only positive thing I can say. It is loud and uncomfortable. There is always something wrong with this car. There is no minor repair with this vehicle. It is really expensive to maintain, parts are ridiculously expensive, and repairs are very labor intensive. It would never purchase another mini.

Mini cooper - a fantastic ride!

Love the vehicle. Excellent power and pick up. A true go-cart on wheels. Driving is super fun and the car is small so get up and go is quick and easy. The color selected is no longer manufactured so that is extra special. Maintenance is very minimal and really easy. They always reserve a loaner car so we are not without a vehicle ever!

- Joe V

Mini convertibles are fun to drive and they look good too.

My mini is a convertible. The top is really easy to take down. You can even partially open it for the skylight effect. It is really fun to drive, gets good gas mileage. The color is unique too. What I do not like about it is that the back seat is so small. It is not comfortable for an adult to sit in. The mini has been reliable so far.
