2007 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


I've had my 2007 Cooper S for 2 years and have over 48,000 miles on it. I LOVE to drive it, but I've had several issues with the turbo engine, mostly the turbo itself. It's been replaced twice and I also had to have the valve cover replaced, all under warranty. This is my third Mini, first was an '02 Cooper. Second was an '05 S with the supercharged engine, which I had NO problems with. I would probably still have that one, but a drunk driver took care of that for me! If I were to do it again, I would stick with the base Cooper, unless they bring back the supercharger. Was much more reliable. On top of that, the closest dealer is a 90-minite drive away.

Best Features

Driving fun, seats, seating position, safety, appearance, handling.

Worst Features

Better engine, turbo needs to be more reliable or go back to the supercharger, better dealer network.
