2005 MINI Cooper Hatchback 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
Bought this thing to have a car to drive at the beach. It's been bullet proof so far. The run flat tires wear quickly, but other than that, repairs have been minor and inexpensive. I drive the thing 2 - 3 times a year to Orlando and back (225 miles each way) and it's pretty comfortable for a little car. Surprisingly roomy in the back if you need to move something.

... But NO cup holders or armrests!!!!! It's a 2005, with heated seats, navigation, full moonroof. Goes from 0 to 60 in seconds (my favorite part!), and can park in tiny spots (amazingly), and the seat warmers in MN should be standard! UNFORTUNATELY-- There are no upgrades for the GPS, so I use it only as a live map. The one cup holder snapped off the first year, so I bought a console with 2 cup holders, that sits on the passenger seat when I'm alone. (There is a center cup holder for the backseat, which I use, inconveniently; and an ashtray I removed, but it's too tiny to be of much use). Back seat is way too cramped for adults or children over 54" tall, but folds flat for plenty of cargo space. And I'm heartbroken that the trade in value is only $4000.
