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


Review

My experiences have been rewarding, I am please with the style and most of all the fun factor. Numerous time I have been stop and asked about the car. I never had any mechanical problems, and enjoy the car as much as my wife.


Favorite Features

Handling is the best feature of this car. You feel like a kid on a go-cart.


Suggested Improvements

The sedan and from what I understand the convertable need more power.

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


Review

The mini is perfect. I live in Chicago and the mini can fit into any parking spot on those busy streets. In a land of SUV's the mini gets amazing gas milleage. I can get up to 420 miles on a tank which is twice as much as my old SUV and it costs the same amount to fill it up. Amazing car, great look, and everyone digs a mini couper


Favorite Features

Amazing stereo system, great gas milleage, comfortable and quick

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


Review

I had been dreaming of a mini for about two years, then was more fired up after seeing the "Italian Job". Built it online, and voila! picked up my mini in January and even my husband now wants to trade in the Tahoe for another family mini. My next door neighbor has one, and more in the neighborhood! What a great car to have and just enjoy being part of the mini mania.


Favorite Features

The get up and go is just like a sporting feel to it...the car moves! Handles like no other.


Suggested Improvements

Engine upgrades with lesser cost than the works

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


Review

We loved the car, it is great. My husband knew the car from Europe, and he could't wait until came to USA. We waited 6 months for the S (worth the wait) now they are coming with the convertible.


Favorite Features

Sunroof, handling,


Suggested Improvements

Cup holders are not the greatest, they should be relocated or redesign. More power for the first gear.

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


Review

The mini cooper is a great car to drive! It turns on a dime and gets looks from everyone, even those in much more expensive cars. With 29 miles per gallon in the city and 39 on the highway, I predict we'll be seeing more of these on the road!


Favorite Features

My favorite feature is the handling. Talk about being able to turn in a phone both


Suggested Improvements

The only thing I would suggest improving would be the front windshield which makes it a bit tricky to see wire mounted stop lights. Most European traffic signals are post mounted.

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


Review

I've had many types and makes of cars and this is by far the best value I've ever owned. The dealership is a cut above all others and has gone out of their way to make buying a car and servicing that car pleasant. The car is outstanding. My only regret is that I did not get a few more of the options but nothing I can't live without.


Favorite Features

pick up and go!


Suggested Improvements

can't think of a thing other than more standard sized cup holders
