I am going to miss my MINI !!!!
By Happy MiniOwner on
2005 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)
I've had my MINI since it was a pup, straight from it's mother teat! But after 4 years, it's time to get an automatic since the wife can't drive a stick. This has been one of my favorite cars I have owned, being in my forties, that's been a lot. It is a blast to drive. I agree the seats could be a little more comfortable, but they're not that bad. The cup holder situation is bad, very bad. Mechanically, I have only had an O2 sensor fail. and those ridiculously expensive tires were replaced too early with normal high performance tires (it is also a weird size had to special order them). The passenger seat has stopped reclining. I will miss waving at other MINI owners and being in the family.
The Zippyness! parking anywhere, head turning, driving my "roller skate"
get ride of the run flat's and give the S model a spare tire. Add cup holders that are accessible to a normal size drink. give a longer warranty.
