2009 MINI Cooper Clubman S 3dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
We bought our Mini Clubman S new about 6 months ago. My other choice was a new V6 Accord, but decided on the Mini just because I wanted a change and better handling. Overall, I love it. It's surprisingly roomy inside for a small car, We have a 4 yr old boy and it's perfect - thats why we opted for the clubman. The Mini has more noises than I can identify, but that becomes one of it's charm. The clubman is not a "pretty"car, but I think thats what I like about it. Only regrets are the "pleather" seats; they are too hot in the summer. The stereo is not that good either, but I find I am less interested in what I am listening to and more interested in the drive. Definitely Fun and different!

stereo system does not sound that great. The armrest should be standard.
