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

Review

Owned/driven my car for 15 months. Fun, but not reliable or well designed. Factory options only (no mods). Since owning, in for repairs SIX times (2x for turbo, 1x for audio amp, 1x for sunroof, 1x for tailpipe recall AND 1 week for replacing a factory built too-small transmission motor mount). My windshield has 3 stone chips and 2 big cracks due to stone hits & the high windshield angle. Engine has cold idle issue where it sounds like a diesel truck for 1-3 minutes. If you want a fun around-town car, are willing to overlook flaws/ major issues, can deal with repair trips to out-of-town dealerships (6 in 15 months), then buy this car. As for me, I'll be selling at the end of the warranty.

Favorite Features

Sporty & fast, good around-town car, easy to haul large boxy items (like 55 gallon drum).

Suggested Improvements

NEEDS better reliability and build quality. Change windshield angle or use better windshields. tires wear out faster than most sport tires despite adult driving style.
