2002 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Having driven my MINI CVT (Automatic) for 5,000 miles, I have mixed feelings. When operating properly the most fun I've had in a car. But, and this is a big but, car has intermitent issues, ie. stalling, idle variances and lack of power. These issues are sporadic, which makes it difficult to feel safe. Service does what it can, yet issues keep coming up again. Car has been in 6 times with almost 30 days in service. I suggest waiting for the 2003 model and avoiding the CVT. Hopefully the 2003 S will have worked all the bugs out. Also, order the car, shop around as many dealers add up to $3000 in mandatory accessories above MSRP!

2002 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have both the Cooper and a Copper S, the difference is minimal...I do not understand all of the hype for the S. It only matters when accelerating over 4500 RPMs. Don't wait for the S just get the Cooper and spend your saved money on aftermarket gadgets. THIS car is awesome and soooo much fun to drive!


Favorite Features

road hugging, great on the turns, lots of looks, zips around like nobody's business!!!


Suggested Improvements

cupholders can only handle short cups, bumpy plastic trim on rear of seats shows scuff marks too easily...I am stretching here!
