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


I have owned a 2003 and then a 2004 MINI Cooper S - I was given the 2004 by the factory because the self adjusting headlights on the '03 didn't self adjust! This is the total of the faults I have had in the two cars. Against this I have had more fun in this car than any car I have owned including Triumphs, MG's, Porches, Toyotas, various GM products, and an Alfa Spyder - well more fun except possibly the 1967 Mini Cooper 1275S - but then that car doesn't have ANY of the amenities that the New MINI has. It has super gas mileage along with wonderful performance and street handling that is out of this world. I have no hesitation at all in recommending this car to anyone that likes driving!

Best Features

Simply put fantastic overall handling in a car with all the luxury gagets that one would want except power seats.

Worst Features

Power seats and a slightly softer ride over small bumps.
