ReviewPurchased the Mini used after seeing them around for some time.Everyone knows all the cliches; go-cart handling, great brakes, etc. Fuel economy is excellent despite my heavy foot. I have taken numerous 1500 mile round trips with 35+ mpg @ 75-80 mph. The Mini rides well on the smooth interstates, but lousy roads in the northeast can beat you up a little; I guess a combination of the short wheelbase, run-flats, and inordinately high tire pressures. Overall though, the experience has been a good one so far. One other thing, no matter how many seats are physically in the car, the car is a two-seater.
Best FeaturesNav, humongous sun-roof, great fuel economy no matter how fast I drive.
Worst FeaturesSport button should default to the on position with the option to turn it off. Something needs to be figured out to do away with the run-flat tires. They give peace of mind, but give the car a choppy ride. A less gunky brake pad material would be appreciated.
