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


The Mini is fun to drive and gets good gas mileage but it has two serious faults that would keep me from buying another Mini. First, the speedometer is off over 5 mph at 75 mph, the speedometer reads 80 mph when I am going 75 mph. I called Mini and they said that this was within design specs and they wouldn't and couldn't make the speedometer accurate. The other problem is with the road noise. It is difficult to talk on a cell phone at highway speeds. If they would fix these two issues and offer better customer service it would be a great car.

Best Features

They should make it IMPOSSIBLE TO TALK ON A CELL PHONE AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS (or any other speed for that matter).
