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


Review

I bought this cute car in 2003 and absolutely loved the interior and styles of the outside. I also loved the fact it had great fuel economy. At first it was real fun but alot of issues cropped up including one cell in the battery going bad causing the whole car to not start. Regular electric issues were found including after warranty was out such as windows, heat etc. These issues were sporadic and would work most of the time.


Best Features

Gas mileage and the look, style, and feel of the car. It was a great car to drive.


Worst Features

Handling could have been smoother. The reliability should be worked as well as the dealer network. If you move due to work you can be really out of luck.

2004 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

I have owned several affordable performance cars and this is by far my favorite. The comfort and build quality are just so so, but you don't care because it is so much fun to drive on a daily basis. Anyone who likes driving needs to own a MINI at sometime in their life.


Best Features

The power, the sound the car makes, the handling.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage (it's not that great considering it's a 1.6L), fewer rattles, and more dealerships where you can get service (there is only one in my entire state).

2004 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

This is a really fun car to drive but very expensive to own. Have owned less than two years and have had one thing after another malfunction. Fragile and only the dealer seems to know how to repair. Hit a pothole and had to replace the tire and rim for $1000! Considering selling and buying something more reliable.


Best Features

Zippy to drive, bonnet stripes, cute to look at


Worst Features

Bigger cupholders, easier way to hook up ipod, smoother ride

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


Review

My wife says I love the car more than her...not true, but it is a fantastic and fun vehicle. Of the many cars I've owned, I have had more fun driving the Cooper than any other. As gas prices rose, the Cooper is even more beneficial, as I average above 30 mpg, even in the city. Overall, a pleased customer!
