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


I've driven this car in snow, on ice, across the country (1700 miles)) and back and forth to work. Love it. The car is roomy for one, tight for two passengers on a longer trip where both wish to have a drink in the holders at the same time. I usually have my cell phone in one of the cup holders which is handy. Cornering is fun, tight, no sway. No problem in traffic, visibility is great, power to get out of anyones way or away from traffic is supreme. I've got a roof rack on my MINI. I used it to maximize cargo capacity if I ever have the need, but be aware, there is wind noise with the rack but I've gotten used to it. Would buy again!

Best Features

Handling, gas mileage (38 on the freeway, 33 around town), seats are comfortable, visibility is great, cargo room in the rear hatch.

Worst Features

Seat belts are hard to reach around to grab for buckling, need larger cup holders, 6 speed manual transmission seems to have the gears close together but you get used to them.
