2006 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
The MINI Cooper is an awesome car. I have driven 8,500 miles in mine and I have averaged 32.2 mpg with mostly in town driving. The power is good especially between 50 and 80 mph (I know that surprised me as well). The fit and finish are perfect. I'm very picky and I've owned this car for 6 months. I have yet to find a SINGLE defect in the car. I got the Premium and Sport packages. I will absolutely buy another MINI product. They're phenomenal quality and "Oh My GOD" fun to drive! This car is a go cart!
I love the handling! It's excellent! I also love the fuel economy. Even with my spirited/heavy-footed driving, I'm still averaging 32.2 mpg. The on-board computer is excellent as well!
I can't imagine any improvements other than giving the car 300 hp and the same fuel economy for the same price. Ha!
