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


I bought my MINI Cooper in March 2006. I placed the order in January but had to wait a couple of months to get my car. I don't drive very much so I only have about 3,500 miles on it so far. At first, the gas mileage seemed low, but now that everything is broken in it's great. I average over 40 mpg on the highway and about 30 or so combined city/hwy. I am also fairly small so I am quite comfortable. The handling is great. Even though it's "only" a base Cooper I still have plenty of passing power and zip when I need it. It's really a great little car. This car is easy to drive, easy to park.

Best Features

The HK sound system sounds great, It has great handling and a small size.

Worst Features

Allow the digital speedo to work with the cockpit chrono pack, but this is a moot point with the new model.
