The vehicle is a small car with cute external features, and a nice interior.

It's very close to the ground making it easy to have external damage caused by materials around. Also being a small car it is easy for bigger trucks on the highway to not see you due to the car easily being in the blind spot. This makes it your job to spot if a car if trying to come over on your lane.

- Ami H

Very reliable, but expensive.

The mini coupe is not very good on gas. A large majority- if not all the repairs are pretty expensive. Aside from those things the car has been fairly reliable if you keep up with the maintenance. I do not find myself ever being stranded due to my car breaking down thankfully.

- Elisa R

It's good with gas and is easy to get around the city in it.

I like that it is small and easy to park. It has a backup camera and keyless entry which are 2 reasons I love it. I also enjoy the air conditioning. Although, the size of the car is a little uncomfortable, and when I drive it, it feels like I'm looking through a bubble.
