2007 Mini Cooper S: Backseat Aversion
December 25, 2007
I just realized how selfish I was in taking our 2007 Mini Cooper S as my road trip car for the holidays in Northern California. Usually when I visit my folks, we end up taking a trip to San Francisco to visit even more family or to Monterey for fun. But this time, when I brought up the idea of going somewhere in the Mini, even to the mall that's 8 miles away, my parents would have none of it. I thought it was because they figured they wouldn't fit back there but my mom said it was because she didn't feel safe in the small car...I told her about the Mini's crash test ratings and its safety features but that didn't really make her feel better about it.
So no extra road trips this holiday.
