2011 MINI Cooper Countryman S 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I purchased the Countryman S approx. 2 weeks ago, and have put approx 1000 miles on it with no issues so far.
This is a sporty little vehicle, that handles like a go-kart, with peppy get up and go.
It is super easy to park, and great for manuvering around the city.
It is well thought out, and the interior is spacious for the vehicle's size.
This is not the vehicle to own if you like a cushy ride.
The ride is stiff, and should be for this type of car.
HK stereo, paddle shifters, dual moon roofs, styling!
The cup holders need to be improved.
They need to hold larger cups/containers, and need to be relocated, as they are too close to the controls.
Also, when looking under the hood, Mini should make the battery more accessible and easy to replace. Looks like a project to remove the battery.
One other improvement would be to add mudflaps as a standard option, as the sides of the car get dirty easily.
