2005 MINI Cooper Hatchback 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The Mini is a "big car in a little body." It has plenty of power on the highway, gets great gas mileage, and is just plain fun to drive. The only negative thing about it is that it uses a higher grade of gasoline than most.


Best Features

The automatic headlights and windshield wipers.


Worst Features

Lowering the required octane.

2005 MINI Cooper Hatchback S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

While I love driving my 2-week old Mini, the service available stinks! After only having my Mini for 2 weeks, the Service Engine light came on and the car lost power. When I called my BMW dealer, they told me I could get in 1 week later! They only have 1 Mini repair person! I also called area BMW dealers and haven't received return calls. Be careful when buying this car to ensure there are more certified repair people for MINI in your area!


Worst Features

GET MORE MINI COOPER Certified mechanics. If not, this car will not be on the market long! If you can't get it repaired, why buy it?!!!

2005 MINI Cooper Hatchback S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

The MINI for me is the only car that truly excells in the categories of Style, Performance, Fun to drive, and practicality. It's great on fuel economy (29mpg avg. Cooper S manual), comes with three years of free maintenance (even covers brakes), has go kart performance, and is able to fit all of the people and cargo that I ever need. There's nothing negative I can say about the vehicle. It does everything I ask it to do above and beyond the call of duty. Why would you consider any other small vehicle?


Best Features

I love the looks, performance, and great economy, and free 3 year maintenance that this vehicle has!


Worst Features

We MINI owners need a few more dealers.

Review

I love my little car, i am 70 years old and I feel very confortable driven my mini, the power is more than enoug, already drive to Tampa at 70 and 80 miles per hour and run beautifull, stability is great and brake excelent, I just trade a BMW 330 convertible and i have more fun with my mini, every body look at the car and ask question. I wish if can running with regular gas but they recomended high grade that is expensive.


Best Features

transmition because i can swith from automatic to manual


Worst Features

regular tires like michelin o pirelis
