When driving this vehicle, it feels like you're in complete control. The vehicle in close to the ground and a manual transmission so it's all on your hands. Also these vehicles are very safe, and have a strong frame.
It is a 6 speed manual transmission. The vehicle has two doors, which I originally loved, however now very much dislike. I have loved this vehicle for the last three years, but now need to get a new one, because we have a baby on the way, due in November. The MINI is also not a great vehicle to be driving in the winter, even if I could put the baby in the backseat.
