Vehicle2009 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 6M)
ReviewI love my 2009 MINI and it's a good thing I do because I spend most of my time in it. I am writing this review for people who are considering buying this car for frequent long trips. The car is a blast but I'm not sure I would purchase again because of all the long trips I take. In 14 months I have driven this car almost 60k mi. To be honest, the interior is not very comfortable. After driving about 2 hours on the hwy I start to get fidgety. Being in the passenger seat is almost unbearable after 1hr. Great gas mileage, but not really any pickup on the highway. I know I sound like I'm complaining. I really love my Mini but if you plan on driving as much as I do, you might want to reconsider.
Best FeaturesI get lots of compliments on my red and black seats, double sunroof, and huge gauges (tho they're not for everyone.) Mood lights are cool too! The car is a real attn-getter and you feel like you belong to a special club because when you drive past other Mini owners you always get a wave or a smile.
Worst FeaturesI don't like the placement of the ipod jack, it's almost impossible to connect while you are driving. Window controls are in a bad spot, blocked by cup holders. The hatch can be difficult to open.
