2008 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I bought my MiniS because I wanted better gas mileage, but so far I've had 3 flats and one shattered windshild from a stone on the fwy so it hasn't been all that economical. Also, the dealer added $3000 to the MSR b/c "they are so much in demand." Well, now they're not in demand and I paid quite a bit more than I should have. Also, I'm a little afraid to take it on long trips b/c I always seem to come back needing a new tire. Yeah, I do get lots of compliments like "You're car looks like it's smiling at you!" Or, "you've got a cutie!" That's nice, but I'm seriously thinking of trading it for a RAV 4-- more room, better tires, more comfortable on long trips.
