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

Review

This car was too expensive to own. Between having to pay for run flat tires and synthetic oil changes, a broken timing belt at 50k and a busted head gasket at 100k, this car cost me just a hair under $15,000 in repairs and maintenance over a period of seven years. I bought it brand new in 2006 for $28,000. Couldn't even allow myself to sell it privately because I was so angry at the cost of owning this vehicle.

Best Features

I can't deny it was a wonderful driving experience. I'm 6 feet tall and weigh 300 pounds, and found this car to be very comfortable.

Worst Features

I found Mini's Service to dismissive and under qualified. At one point I had a wheel barring that was making noise, and they deduced it was the tires.
