2004 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The car looks cool on the outside but
it needs some help with the interior
finish. The sunroof rattles. My
dealer pretends the problem does not
exist.

The biggest pain is the placement of
the foot pedals. Every time you use
the clutch, your left foot smacks
against the door of the fuse box. It
makes a resounding smack and is quite
annoying.

The interior styling is nice, but the
color choices are limited. For
example, a tan interior looks good with
British Racing Green paint. However,
they charge $1300 more for that!
Otherwise your choices are limited to
black with silver plastic, or black
with grey plastic.


Best Features

Favorite feature: the exterior styling. What a cool looking car. It is fun to drive, and the motor seems very well designed.


Worst Features

Fix the lame sunroof. Fix the stupid fuse box door. Give customers more interior color choices.

2004 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car is a blast to drive. We live
in the Colorao Mountains and it handles
the hills and curves quickly and with
stable steering. Nothing like blowing
by everyone as you head up the pass on
I-70. I will admit it is a bit like
riding a rollercoaster when we get more
than 6 inches of snow. But hey, on
those days we just use the SUV. We
have had this car since 2002 and people
still point and stare as I zip by. It
really is the most fun I have had
driving, including several more
expensive luxury sporsters. When we
first got it we were afraid that it
would not be comfortable for long
trips. I have driven it on several 6
hour trips and it has been great.


Best Features

The big sun roof and the racing stripe paint job. The interior climate control works great.


Worst Features

Would love to see a convertable.

2004 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

After waiting 6 months for our baby to
be built, it finally arrived and we
couldn't be happier. It is so much fun
to drive and the ease of the rear seats
folding down makes carry large loads a
breeze! It is so cute to look at and
is a perfect city car. There is always
a parking space when you own a Mini! I
disagree with Edmunds. The pick up
speed on the Copper is excellent and is
very peppy! We love our MINI!


Best Features

Handling, style, pep, sound system, (we upgraded to the Harmon Kardon 8 speakers)and comfort!


Worst Features

Defroster fan is not adjustable and blows out very strongly.

2004 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Well guys, I didn't even tried the
jetta and accord after I went into my
MINI. The car runs really good, so far
no problems (into my first 1k miles);
the seats are a little uncomftable
after a while but the ride is
incredible.


Best Features

The handle, and the cockpit; exterior design is the bomb


Worst Features

the seating should improve and the cupholders (are a little weird) also a storage compartment underneath the toggle switches could help a lot
