Think About It
By Bob S on


2006 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)


I love the personality of this car! I love the overall design--inside and out, but this car is not really meant for urban driving, especially in areas where there are potholes. In two years I have had to replace the struts twice and the brakes once and the run-flat tires while convenient provide for a jarring ride. The ride on expressways is great and acceleration is great. Think about how much the car costs and if you're ready to deal with it's quirky issues. Also, not as good on gas as one would expect--I averaged 19 mpg, not the best for a car of this size.

Best Features

Speed, clean dash, and great exterior design.

Worst Features

Durability! Stop using run-flats, they're a nasty ride and pricey to replace.
