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.
I love everything about this car - the styling, the ride, the comfort, the mileage - everything!
The cup holders surrounding the gear shifter are undersized.
