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


Review

I used to own a 1967 MINI Coooper S. It was great fun, but unreliable, and in the shop constantly. The new MINI Cooper S is everything I could have wanted back then, and more. Handling, Safety, creature comforts, and feels better at 100 miles an hour than most cars. We use this car to move theings when we can't use our 5 series BMW, because we can fit more in with the seats folded down. This is a great car.


Favorite Features

Nav system, and Large sunroof.


Suggested Improvements

A Leather or wood shift knob that doesn't burn your hand on hot days. Better drink holder, although there is an accessory one now.

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


Review

Never was a car person,but LOVE this car. Great road feel,well-engineered for cheap, and an attention-getter (unforseen outcome). While no 50 mpg,I'm feeling smug with prices at $2.50 per gallon. Don't be deceived by size.Have pictures of car loaded for ski weekend for 2 adults with 3 pairs of boots, 2 pairs of skis, and a snowboard. Not even packed. Only thing I've had to borrow a car for was to borrow a ladder. Both are better borrowed. Couple of little troubles (Power steering pump {made noise,took it in}, loose battery conection {had it towed,felt stupid}, vibration on sunroof easily resealed. All under warranty,as are oil changes every 10K. What a peach. Buying out the lease.


Favorite Features

Transmission, road feel, unobstructed view, ease of parking, radio controls, seat warmers. Appeal!


Suggested Improvements

Cup holders don't support American- sized portions, but I like this. It reminds me that we overindulge.

Review

My MINI Cooper has been one of the best cars that I have ever owned. I would buy another MINI in a heartbeat. I am 5'10" 240 lbs. and fitting in cars with the width of my back is hard but I fit in this car with no problem. Everyone I know fits in my car, from my 6'4" brother to my 5'4" 120lb girlfriend. This car is great.


Favorite Features

I blove the toggle switches.


Suggested Improvements

Larger cupholders.
