2005 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

owned the car for 6 months,it was in the shop 8 times for problem with car almost stalling when air was on,bmw acknowledged there was a problem & didnt have any time when expected to have remedy,also had power steering replaced & the car had more rattles than a 1980's huyndai - bmw doesnt participate in the california arbitration for lemon law so traded it in on a new vw bettle before everyone figured out what a piece of crap the cars are.thank goodness they have a 3yr 36k mile warranty, you'll need it

2005 MINI Cooper S 2dr Convertible (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

One of the best cars I have owned. Perfect for a city ... easy to park. Three issues: 1) Needs decent back bumper 2) poor visibility with top up and down 3) rough ride. This IS a sportscar not a sedan.


Favorite Features

The kick! This little car rocks. I am used to 300 plus HP and I was shocked when I put the peddle to the metal in this car. Lotsa room inside (if you are in the front.) 6' plus big guys will have little problem with this car.


Suggested Improvements

Visibility. Rear window wiper. Bumpers.

2005 MINI Cooper 2dr Convertible (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Coming up on 10,000 miles. No major problems of any type. Rides hard as one would expect. Small noise in dashboard when on bad LA freeways. Gets great mileage. Averaging 31.7 mpg in LA combined highway and city.


Favorite Features

Great convertible


Suggested Improvements

Install armrest as standard (bought aftermarket unit that really helps)
