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


I first drove a Mini in 1966 and I never forgot it. When the 2007 model came out I decided to buy one. Everything about the car is great: a bicycle fits in the back, it gets great gas mileage, and the overall feel of the car is exceptional. Except...the engine malfunction light came on at 340 miles and it has been in the shop ever since. Mini U.S. and Mini Germany have no idea how to fix it at this point. I am told that it has been joined by another 2007 with the same problem at 380 miles. I would suggest that you avoid buying a 2007 at this point and give them time to work out the bugs if you feel you must have this car.

Best Features

The handling, Bluetooth phone system, styling, and good gas mileage.

Worst Features

What can I say? The product needs to be debugged before they bring it to market, not after.
