2005 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)
Let me first say that I love my Mini. I have never had another car that I felt this way about. I love the feel of it, the size, the leather interior, the ability to get an entire shopping cart in the back. It is fun to drive and has the power I want to get around. I have had some major mechanical problems: rear main seal replaced at 34K and now lost a valve at 39K. Seems problems that shouldn't come up at the mileage.
Lots of room inside for such a small car. Love the leather interior and funability of the entire car. I simply love my Mini.
Some major repairs that seem excessive for the mileage.
