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

Review

Perhaps, the 2nd worst vehicle I have ever owned. Too many warranty fixes from one previous owner and myself to list but include everything from water leaks to fluid leaks to repeat seat cover replacements, front seat replacement, loss of compression, etc. Compared to my previous vehicle, a Miata, it shifts like a truck. Handling is no where close to the Miata's. It would make a cute 3000 lb. paperweight.

Best Features

It's "cute."

Worst Features

Prototypical German car-if you get a good one they can be terrific, unless of course it's a BMW 7 series or an Audi 6 or a V.W. Over-hyped with a host of reliability issues. Suggestion: put a Japanese or Ford engine in the thing with a Miata transmission.
