I bought my Mini used in March 2010 with 60,000 miles on it.
I was really torn at the time between a Cooper S and a Cooper.
I got a great deal on my Cooper and have to say it is one of the best vehicles I have ever owned.
This car is so much fun to drive, has great gas mileage, and looks.
I drive 72 miles one way to work and usually get around 40 mpg on my trips.
My trip is through a lot of back roads and highways, and is fun :) even in the snow here in central Pennsylvania.
It is so hard to walk past this car without jumping in it a taking it for a drive.
Although this car does have four seats unless you have children it doesn't really sit four.
My wife, two year-old, three year-old, and I do take frequent road trips in the Mini.
