2010 MINI Cooper Clubman John Cooper Works 3dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I've had this car for about two years now. It is my daily driver about 28 miles to and from work.
I have owned a lot of cars. This one is a Gem. It is well built (BMW), Fast, really fast.
It handles really well. The Brembo Brakes on the JCW are really good. Stops the car instantly, helps with great handling through the curves.
Nothing has gone wrong on the car yet, just regular maintenance.
It handles like a sports car so the ride may be stiff for some people.
Bottom line: I don't want to get out of it.
It is far too much fun to drive.
The base stereo is not bad either!
Engine. Transmission. Handling. and the seats are comfortable for me.
Add the fact that with the seats folded down it has quite a bit of cargo room.
A short throw shifter would be nice. I'm not a big fan of the run-flat tires, a spare with normal tires would be nice. Otherwise. Outstanding job MINI!
