2006 MINI Cooper Hatchback S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

i bought this car almost a year ago for 11000. in this time i've had to get breaks and rotors changed (300 bucks) a new supercharger(2200 bucks) and not to mention a full synthetic oil change is 80 bucks. a lot of quick oil change places wont even touch this car btw so thats a struggle in itself. i absolutely hate this car and i can not wait to get rid of it, worse car i have ever had. its nice to look at and sporty and you get a lot of attention. but if your 6ft its more difficult for you to get out of this car, and this car sits very low to the ground so if you hit any bumps or anything that is slightly slanted it will scuff the bottom of your car, just pulling into my apartment complex i deal with this everyday. so do not buy this car unless you have plenty of money to foot the bill to fix it.

2006 MINI Cooper Hatchback 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought a 2006 mini cooper hatchback automatic and have had nothing but HORRIFIC problems from the start!
Where to begin, well all of the internal accessories have either fallen off broke, or cracked within the first year, including: cup holder, visor, change cup holder lid, and cigarette lighter!! Then someone smashed into my car and nearly totaled it, Prestige mini was responsible for fixing the damage and had me drive up there three times because they could not fix it properly.
After the third time, it still was not fixed, the better business needed to get involved and still to this day, 4 years later, my car still is the most unreliable car imaginable.
Terrible customer service!

2006 MINI Cooper Hatchback 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my first MINI & I would buy another, given the chance. Fun to Drive, always. Reliable?
After logging 73,000 miles without incident, I can say yes. Great service from the dealer from new.
As Small as it seems, I can easily carry 8' pieces of lumber inside if needed. Plenty 'o' leg room in the front. Fine for my young one in the back. Glued to the road. I slid on some gravel on a back country road moving at a good pace, yep! handles like a go-cart, I felt safe.


Best Features

Sport Package, handling, speedy at 4000 rpm & up, heated seats, Dealer service. (Flow MINI, NC)


Worst Features

Cup holders in front were better in later years.

Review

I bought my 2006S in October 2010. i get about 27 mpg city and 30-34 mpg highway. Sunroof will bake the driver as there is no shade ! I am having it limo tinted. Performance is great but ride is VERY stiff. Potholes feel like craters. Great handling and fun to drive. Oil change at Mini dealer is over $100.. Had to buy a bra for it as the front attracts all rocks. I am 65 and feel like a kid again! Holds resale value well but Mini dealers are few and far away and costly. Get rid of the run flat tires but then you have no spare ! It turns heads wherever I go and is bright red.


Best Features

Performance , fun to drive and fuel economy. Seating is very comfortable and accommodates tall drivers easily.


Worst Features

Sun Shade needed for sunroof. Spare tire needed.
