2002 MINI Cooper Hatchback S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

I would love to meet the engineering team of this vehicle. The thought process that went into a car that sells for under $25k is amazing.


Favorite Features

Visability & 6-speed Getrag manual transmission


Suggested Improvements

Tilted glove compartment would allow better storage.

2002 MINI Cooper Hatchback S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

Why does everyone keep trying to compare it to a BMW?! It was designed to be a fun, sporty, LITTLE vehicle for those in the under $20,000 category to enjoy. No it is not a 328!!! If you have $35,000 you should go buy a 328 and shut up! If you do not have $35,000 then please go buy something that was designed to go really fast and quit complaining about a really good car!!! I like my MINI!! I like Beemers!! The MINI is not a Beemer!


Favorite Features

It has STYLE!


Suggested Improvements

Slightly better build quality might be necessary to continue competition with the likes of Honda and Toyota. STILL AN AWESOME CAR, THOUGH!!!

Review

I bought my Mini Cooper S a week ago, and I love it. This is the most fun car I have driven in the 34 years I have been driving. It handles extremely well on curves, and has plenty of zip. I get lots of grins, waves, and thumbs up from other drivers, and the car is a conversation piece where I work.


Favorite Features

The 6 speed transmission and the handling.


Suggested Improvements

None that come to mind yet. Great car all around so far.

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


Review

I have put over 1000 miles since receiving the car a week and a half ago. This is without a question one of the most fun driving cars on the road AT ANY PRICE! Be prepared to be the most popular guy in town; you will be stopped and questioned, smiled at repeatedly, and given thumbs up wherever you go. It seems as though everyone likes the car, regardless of age, sex or social status. The build quality is supurb, and it drives like a dream. The car is full of character and spirit, qualities lacking in most modern cars. My greatest fear is that BMW will mess with the design and add more useless features in the future. Get one now, quick!

Suggested Improvements

Don't mess with it.
