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


This car should win the Bang for the Buck contest. It is a performer that is easy on the gas. 0-60mph under 7 seconds and gets 30 mpg city/highway. There is no other car that can match the performance and the fuel efficiency of the new MINI Cooper S. But the engine makes loud noises like a diesel truck. On some occasions, it is worse as if it is grinding on some internal metal parts. Dealer has not found the solution yet. I have my fingers crossed that the MINI company will find a permanent cure for this problem. The car rattles sometimes. Handling is second to none.

Best Features

6 speed manual with twin scroll turbo engine.

Worst Features

Quieter engine? take care of the rattles? Lower the ride height. The wheel gap is just hideous.
