2007 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I've had this car for a few months now and love to drive it. The S has super powers. Cuts well in traffic. The car interior is not intuitive. The computer settings are odd, and it takes some time to get adjusted to how it all works. The HVAC controls are really bad but, that's all minor stuff. Overall not a great family car but wholly momma it makes for a great daily driver. I nearly look forward to the commute. I got the standard seats which seem comfortable, but sticky in warm weather. The summer might kill me. Actual gas mileage with normal 50/50 highway/street commute 29.5 mpg. I was hoping for a few higher.
Go-cart like fun to drive. Computer is customizable to your liking. Locks, lights and such. Sport button is cool.
