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


I've really enjoyed the car. There have been a few
rattles which have been fixed by the dealership.
There have also been a few strange noises coming
from the clutch when the car hasn't been driven in
several days at start-up. At times when it is hot, it
idles rough. I love the car, but I'm not too
convinced that maintenance will not skyrocket as
the car gets older. The strange noises coming from
the clutch have me worried. All in all, I'm still glad I
bought it.

Worst Features

Allow for easy conection of an MP3 player. Also allow for consumers to install the NAV system after buying the vehicle. Currently the NAV system must be installed from the factory.
