I have a Love/Hate relationship with my Mini
By spcrngr on
2010 MINI Cooper Clubman S 3dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I have been driving my first Mini for a year now and have a love/hate relationship with it.
First the Love: Yes, it is a blast to drive (and park ), it has the best seat heaters on the planet, and the milage/fun can't be beat !
Now for the Hate: Some of the controls are just plain maddening, the rearview mirror and the barn doors create the worst blind spots ever.
Overall I love the car, a year later and I still smile every time I get behind the wheel, but I wish Mini would not be quite so quirky with those controlls, it's just maddening.
Fun car to drive, and still get 30 MPG ave, sure you could get more driving a Prius, but if you want to drive a car with personality ...
Seat heaters, sport button
While that giant speedo might be a design element it along with a stereo system that cannot be replaced is useless. Perhaps a sound system that can be changed and some usefull gauges would be nice.
