Mini Coopers are great cars!
2013 MINI Cooper Base
I really like my car. It runs well on gas, and it's very reliable. I get an oil change about every 6 months depending on how much mileage I use. The car gives updates on what needs to be fixed or maintenance. It is very comfortable because I am a small person and my car is just the right size for me. For someone who is taller, the sit goes far back so you'll be fine as well. The only issue is that the car is very low to the ground so depending on where you live, the front of the car may get scratched.
