Adequate...in a good way.

Just passed the 1K mark. Kid heading away to college and didn't need the space I needed in the past. Turned in the lease on the Highlander and opted for this little bad boy! Just packed it full of gear and put the Thule on the top and headed for the lake for the week...4 adults, gear and the full Thule at about 70mph and I averaged 26mpg. I thought that was pretty good for a motor that hadn't even been broken in yet!?! All 4 adults were comfortable and had no complaints on the 3.5 hour drive. Harmon Kardon sounds insane good! We have a little Audi with the BnO and this is not quite the same quality of sound...but damn near! Bluetooth works well and phone calls are audible. The power for a little 1.6 liter Turbo is surprisingly good! Having other cars that are quite quick, I found myself not disappointed with this at all.

GAS GUZZLER WITH ROUGH RIDE

As far a comfort forget it. This the worst ride I have ever had. You feel every bump and crack in the road. As far as the gas mileage it sucks as well. I was told I would get 30 MPG and the closet I have gotten is 27. Sadly enough I just drove from Covina to Santa Clarita and I got 24 MPG on a 100 mile turn around. What a shame and it is sad because this was one of the most important values for me besides performance and comfort. Nothing good to say about this car. [contact info removed]

A "hoot" to drive

Voice recognition is still difficult but a "hoot" to drive After a 2 years of driving my Mini I am still finding the voice recognition system difficult. I don't even attempt to use it. I am also finding the seat belt clasp difficult. The armrest is in the way.....storage is a challenge for just the 'little things'. And, yes, it is still a "hoot" to drive.

Love the Mini style with real practicality

This is the "family" Mini if you want Mini style and attitude but you have a family and groceries to haul. The backseats can fit 2 real adults comfortably and still fit your bags or groceries in the trunk. The S version has enough spunk to get up and go even though it won't break any speed records but that's not what it's for. The handling is sharp like a Mini should be but can be a bit on the firm side. Like all Minis, you can customize it to your heart's content to make it your own. I love it and I'm thinking about getting a 2 door for everyday driving now just to add some fun to my daily commute. UPDATE: Still loving the Countryman. It's small enough for city driving and ease of parking is great for those tight strip mall parking spots. However, the car is surprisingly spacious inside for passengers, even taller ones fit well in the back. Grocery hauling is not a problem with the trunk, but if you are shopping for a big holiday get-together, you might run out of space for all the stuff unless you fold down the rear seats. Ride can be harsh over some city streets that aren't kept up well though, but that's because the S has harder suspension for cornering. The gas mileage does suffer if you push hard on the freeway. It is after all, still a high revving supercharged engine pushing a car that is not exactly the most aerodynamically shaped.

Solid and Reliable

We have had this vehicle for two years. Purchased used, with 58k on the Odo, it now has 65k. This vehicle has been excellent! We have not spent a penny on anyting other than routine maitenance! It is roomy yet has a sporty firm ride and, with the 1.6L Turbo and six-speed tranny is a very quick four-door hatchback. It has soft a supple heated leather seating, twin-tilt panorama sun-roof and Pirelli run-flat tires fo keep her firmly grounded. It will cruise all day long at 80 mph on the intetstate. The handling and ride is sporty and nimble! We love this car. It was a great choice!
