2002 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

So far I have 5,000 miles on my Cooper,
and have found everyone of them to be
wonderful. I would like a little more
power and probably would have that with
the Cooper S and or a manual
transmission rather than the automatic.


Best Features

The entire car!

Power

2002 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Having driven my MINI CVT (Automatic)
for 5,000 miles, I have mixed
feelings. When operating properly the
most fun I've had in a car. But, and
this is a big but, car has intermitent
issues, ie. stalling, idle variances
and lack of power. These issues are
sporadic, which makes it difficult to
feel safe. Service does what it can,
yet issues keep coming up again. Car
has been in 6 times with almost 30
days in service. I suggest waiting for
the 2003 model and avoiding the CVT.
Hopefully the 2003 S will have worked
all the bugs out. Also, order the car,
shop around as many dealers add up to
$3000 in mandatory accessories above
MSRP!

2002 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have both the Cooper and a Copper S,
the difference is minimal...I do not
understand all of the hype for the S.
It only matters when accelerating over
4500 RPMs. Don't wait for the S just
get the Cooper and spend your saved
money on aftermarket gadgets. THIS car
is awesome and soooo much fun to drive!


Best Features

road hugging, great on the turns, lots of looks, zips around like nobody's business!!!


Worst Features

cupholders can only handle short cups, bumpy plastic trim on rear of seats shows scuff marks too easily...I am stretching here!
