Love My Mini
By JOHN GUIDA on 01/14/06 09:28 AM (PST)

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

Review

I have read some of your reviews. Some were negative about this car's pep. I have been suprised to the opposite. The Mini Cooper has more pep than I expected it to. Therefore I am thrilled with my Mini Convertable (not the "s" model). Your profesonal reviews had me a little nervous after ordering the car. I'm assuming you're using teenagers to do your reviews. I'm forty eight years old and this is the most fun car I had ever had to drive. If you want to see a cheap interior look at the Pontiac Solstice. Mini has thought of features on this car that I would have never expected.

My New Red Mini

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

Review

I had to travel about 80 miles to the nearest dealership to see the Mini. It was love at first site! I live in the city where one has to use street parking. Buying a bigger car or SUV would not make my life easier. Since I bought my Mini, I can park where others can't! It's wonderful not to have to drive around to find a parking place. I bought my Mini for its compact size and great gas mileage. I didn't realize I was buying a sports car as well!

Review

I have wanted a Mini Cooper since the day they first came out. I'm glad I waited though because they have only gotten better. I really have fun driving my Mini Maus and the GPS system really rocks!

Sports Car Moves in Retro Style Package

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

Review

We bought the MINI because it looks great. We love the MINI because it is a sportscar in hatchback clothing. This little car begs to be driven. You'll find yourself searching out winding roads to go blasting down. It is a real treat. If you are on the fence about this car, spend some test drive time driving on a twisty 2 lane road and you will be signing your order immediately. After an hour you will feel like you have been driving this car for years. All the moves on the road inspire confidence. It has plenty of room up front for someone 6'4", however there will be no backseat room behind someone of this height.

The Most Fun You Can Have in a Car
By J. Cooper on 12/23/05 12:23 PM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

The MINI Cooper S is as fun as driving gets. According to every woman the see it it's "adorable" I've not yet been impressed with the fuel economy but it's still new and still can't get used to the center console gauges, but it's a small price to pay for this much fun.

better than my corvette

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

Review

I have had the competition and this is the best. I had a porche 914, a mazda miata and a corvette. The mini blows them away. Everyone said i was crazy foe selling my 2002 corvette for a mini cooper but it was a good choice. The mini is not tempermental and can be driven as a daily driver instaed of just a sunday driver like my other "Toy" cars have been. I can't stop revving and driving it hard. I am a big guy (300lbs) and fit very comfortably in it. It also has goos storage whwn the rear seats are folded down. Mine is pepper white with a black top and black stripes. I also upgraded the wheels to 17's. I also got the automatic transmission which I highly recommend. Its exactly like a stick!

Review

I just got my MINI Cooper S and I love it! Everyone wants to drive it and tells me how cool it is. I didn't like the looks of them at first but they grew on me. I am super happy with my new purchase! If you can afford it, definitely get the S model.

My third Mini

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

Review

I have purchased three MINIs since 2002 and also own a Porsche 911 Cabriolet. The only reason my Porsche gets driven is to get washed and on a once a month drive down the coast. I love driving my Minis for everyday use.

I'm Happy with Happy
By Happy on 11/18/05 14:15 PM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

Just sitting in my MINI Cooper (Happy) puts a smile on my face. Very few cars can do that anymore. It handles like a GoKart and gets good economy. The only issue that I have had with it is that BMW says to use Premium Fuel, which is a bummer. The back seats are not usefull unless those in front are small also. Otherwise, this car is a beatiful piece of machinery.

Cooper S the thrill is back
By RM Joy on 10/27/05 19:01 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

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

Review

I have been driving my MINI Cooper S for about 6 months, and it still a blast. The S comes stock with a 168 hp engine, which is plenty of fun, but I did an aftermarket upgrade ($280.00) to bring it up to about 190 hp. I am a lover of small cars, and these cars handle marvelously on the highway or on Oregon's twisty country rodes. Above all, this little car has "character".
