2004 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I think that the mini cooper is one of
the greatest cars. It is fun to drive.
I love how low it is to the ground.


Best Features

My favorite feature is not really a feature it is the car itself because of the size and height.


Worst Features

You could make it go faster. Plus put buket seats in it.

2004 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Owned for just over 2 months. Way too
much fun to drive. We find it very
comfortable. Its not made with a lot
of storage space in mind, but the car
is not meant for that purpose either.
We find the power fine four our
driving. Pickup in first gear is a
little lagging, but once the rpms get
up in 1st gear, power is great. Miles
per gallon - we've averaged just under
30 mpg for the 10 weeks we've owned it.


Best Features

The appearance, the looks we get while driving it, compactness. Handling is phenominal (its like its on rails). Interior styling.


Worst Features

Better pickup in first gear; a better storage space in the glove box and behind the cup holders.

2004 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

I had been watching with great
anticipation the BMW development of the
Mini.

I brought my Cooper S last year, and it
has met all of my expectations! The
performance is excellent, and the
handling on mountain roads makes it
pure fun to drive. The styling carries
on the Mini tradition with an agressive
stance and it gets plenty of looks.

But the best thing is the pleasure I
get driving it and the waves I get from
other drivers as I zip through traffic,
or just cruise up the coast.


Best Features

The entire car is my favorite feature!


Worst Features

The JCW package is the right direction, as I have basically done the same. The only improvement I would make is to match decent speakers to the H-K system. They're a bit tinny....

2004 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

The Mini Cooper S in my opinion is the
best auto in the $20K range for those
who like performance. The fact that
the S only comes with a manual
transmission and that they felt the
need to tweak the suspension on the
firm side despite its go-kart
proportions tells you that this car
means business. Of course the build
quality is typical of what you would
expect from BMW. For those who want
performance yet can't afford a true
sports car should certainly check out
the MINI Cooper S. I personally see it
as a stepping stone to my future M3.


Best Features

The best part of a MINI Cooper S has to be the 6 speed transmission. Throws are precise and silky smooth. Of course the supercharger must be pointed out as a necessary edition to a small engine. The quiet supercharger adds about a third more horsepower to the base engine.


Worst Features

The only real complaint I have is concerning the radio display. On very cold days the crystals don't all light up. This really isn't a problem for me but is a little surprising given that the same display is used in other BMWs.

2004 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

I can't believe what I have purchased
in such a small package. One only has
to drive an "S" to fall in love with
it. Can't wait for the convertible.


Best Features

Performance and Handling....simple as that


Worst Features

A little more interior storage if possible.....
