What a car!

2007 MINI Cooper Hatchback S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

The MINI is truely unique! One never gets tired of driving it. Gas mileage with premium is 35mph & steady. I've had the MINI for 9 months and its never been back to the dealer. I guess I got lucky? One problem I will discuss when I do go for my oil change is the cosmoline grease that runs down on parts of the car. Be sure to wipe it off as soon as you see it. Looks like runny vasoline. Will stain the rubber. But overall the Mini is super.

My Little Nightmare

Review

We fell in love with our Mini instantly and then almost immediately, the honeymoon was over. While being incredibly cute and fun to drive, we think spending over 45 days in the shop in 10 months is a bit much. We had work done on the AC, sunroof, flat tire indicator, replaced the catalytic converter, trouble with O2 sensors, and replaced the transmission not once, but twice! I'm thinking we got all of the problems that every other Mini owner didn't! Thankfully the dealer bought it back from us.

Awesomest car to ever buy!

Review

This is the cutest and coolest car I've ever seen, and I hope to drive another one some day, because it is just so fun to drive, and I love the way it feels as you drive along the streets. It's so fuel-efficient, and I couldn't believe how it could squeeze into a tight parking space! I'm telling you, this is a one-of-a- kind car! You'll be very happy!

Review

I've driven this car in snow, on ice, across the country (1700 miles)) and back and forth to work. Love it. The car is roomy for one, tight for two passengers on a longer trip where both wish to have a drink in the holders at the same time. I usually have my cell phone in one of the cup holders which is handy. Cornering is fun, tight, no sway. No problem in traffic, visibility is great, power to get out of anyones way or away from traffic is supreme. I've got a roof rack on my MINI. I used it to maximize cargo capacity if I ever have the need, but be aware, there is wind noise with the rack but I've gotten used to it. Would buy again!

Built like a tank, with fun and efficiency

Review

This little car is the most fun car I have ever owned. It is also the most fuel efficient vehicle I've ever owned. Combine it with practicality of a hatchback and you have the most perfect little car in the world. Get a 6 speed and you will have the most fun one can have in a car with clothes on. Even with aggressive driving, I still get better than 30 mpg city/hwy. If I am cruising on freeway, I get about 38 mpg. But with the traction control off I can burn the rubber anytime I want to!

Absolutely Loving It

2007 MINI Cooper Hatchback 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 6M)

Review

It's wonderful! I have a 75 mile a day commute on a very winding road. This car makes the trip a lot of fun. It handles like a dream. I average 45 mpg, sometimes more, sometimes less depending on driving conditions, but I haven't gotten less than 41. The controls did take some getting used to, but that's just one more thing that makes this car unique. It is surprisingly roomy. I got a pretty basic model and it is still loaded with lots of nice features that most other cars only offer as "added features". I bought this car just as a work car that would be cheap on gas, but its so fun to drive that I drive it everywhere. My other vehicles are just collecting dust.

Great, But Would I Buy Another One?

2007 MINI Cooper Hatchback S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

My MINI has NAV and all options. It reminds me of my 7 series except its smaller, more fun to drive, and it's never in the shop. Had a few quirks iPod installer screen getting stuck, but it resolved itself. Speaking of maintenance, I haven't needed any. Nothing. Nada. I have almost 12K miles on the car, and the coputer says it will be another year before it will need its first service. That said, we started shopping around for a larger vehicle because we're adding to our family, and the prices we're being quote for trade in are near ridiculous. $22K trade value in for a $34K car? Lease it, but don't buy it.

I could not be happier after living with this car for 9 months. Performance and comfort is exceptional. Great gas mileage (34MPG) with more than enough HP. Fun to drive, Everything works the way its supposed to. I would definitely buy again.

Fun but poisoned

2007 MINI Cooper Hatchback S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

This car should win the Bang for the Buck contest. It is a performer that is easy on the gas. 0-60mph under 7 seconds and gets 30 mpg city/highway. There is no other car that can match the performance and the fuel efficiency of the new MINI Cooper S. But the engine makes loud noises like a diesel truck. On some occasions, it is worse as if it is grinding on some internal metal parts. Dealer has not found the solution yet. I have my fingers crossed that the MINI company will find a permanent cure for this problem. The car rattles sometimes. Handling is second to none.

Good Lord, I love this car

Review

I upgraded my 1996 Honda Civic Hatchback with a 2007 MINI Cooper last April. I drove it 20000 miles this past year. It's first scheduled maintenance, an oil change, was about 2 weeks ago. There isn't anything I would change on this car. I love driving it to work, taking the kids to their activities, and just getting around town. It drives like a dream and gets fantastic mileage. The stereo sounds great too.
