2008 MINI Cooper S 2dr Convertible (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)


I've got 3000 miles on my Mini S convertible and I found out the hard way the marketing in better than the product. I'm getting only 16 mpg, horrible. The exterior styling is great, but the interior is lacking. The cup holders are useless in that they are too close to everything to put other than the smallest cup in it. And that is indicative of the entire vehicle, looks good but doesn't always work and it's usually too small to do the intended job. I thought this would be a great fun car to drive but it seems I'm always driving to the gas station. I had a Toyota before and boy do I miss it.

Best Features

The convertible roof that opens half- way for a sun roof effect is nice.

Worst Features

Better gas mileage! And better gas mileage.
