2014 Mini Cooper: Can't Block the Sun

March 18, 2015

2014 Mini Cooper

Temperatures have been in the high 80s in Los Angeles this past week. When I get into our long-term 2014 Mini Cooper after it's been parked in my driveway, the interior is pretty hot.

Not only is the air conditioner weaker than I would like, but the sun roof has this mesh screen to filter the sun, instead of a solid cover to completely block it.

As someone with fair skin and a tendency to freckle, this is not acceptable to me. I didn't notice this when I drove the car in cooler weather. But in the warmer months, this would be a deal breaker for me.
