2007 MINI Cooper S 2dr Convertible (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)

Review

This is a great performing car, but mine has been in the shop more than I have driven it. DSC and brake warning light is on constantly and DSC doesn't work. My windshield wipers also come on by themselves after I turn the car off which is very irritating. The dealer says the electronic control part is on "national order" status from Mini in Germany which leads me to believe that there must be a lot of other owners with the same problem. I'll have to wait and see if this car can outperform the Toyotas I have owned in the past. I also wish I had the leather seats - the "leatherette" plastic seats make you sweat like crazy and feel cheap relative to the cost of the car. Avoid them.

Best Features

Wonderful acceleration and handling.

Worst Features

Controls for the audio and computer functions are very difficult to use and are not self evident. Amazingly bad user engineering for a German owned company.
