Won't drive anything but a Mini
By jbmsgg2010 on


2003 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Bought my Mini new in 2003.
There have been a few issues with squeeks and rattles, but the dealership has remedied them all.
I rated the comfort at 4 only because the Sport Suspension is a bit stiff, with the run flat tires, but it is NOT a complaint.
The design is rated at 4 only because of the cup holders.
I drove my car everyday, 70 miles round-trip to work, on wet and icy roads.
The front-wheel drive is amazing!
I'm getting ready to sell my baby for a new one -- 2011 Mini Countryman.
Can't wait!!

I bought my 03 mini cooper s used at 56K in 1997. I now have 145k miles on my mini. I heard comments about the supercharger going bad. How true are such statements. I am enjoying my mini now that its is old and broken now...
