2006 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


This is my first MINI & I would buy another, given the chance. Fun to Drive, always. Reliable?
After logging 73,000 miles without incident, I can say yes. Great service from the dealer from new.
As Small as it seems, I can easily carry 8' pieces of lumber inside if needed. Plenty 'o' leg room in the front. Fine for my young one in the back. Glued to the road. I slid on some gravel on a back country road moving at a good pace, yep! handles like a go-cart, I felt safe.

Best Features

Sport Package, handling, speedy at 4000 rpm & up, heated seats, Dealer service. (Flow MINI, NC)

Worst Features

Cup holders in front were better in later years.
