2010 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


I bought my Mini new in August 2010 from a dealer in Albuquerque, NM. I've owned a 1966 Porsche 911, a 1973 Porsche 911s and a 1985 Porsche 930, but I can honestly say my little Mini although it "ain't a Porsche", is a blast. I've got 50k on it and my MPG which I never have reset is 37.5 and my average MPH is 58.9 over those 50,000 miles. Top speed, 149......I couldn't get it to 150. Oh well, 149 MPH is pretty fast and it'll get there pretty quick. I truly love my Mini! Had a few minor issues, the weather strip around the windshield disintegrated which I believe was caused by the protective coating spray used on the windshield glass. The speakers on the doors are located just right so your foot hits it when you exit the car, the cover is cracked as a result. The pano roof gave me some problems on hot days, it wouldn't open. Other than those few issues its been great!
