Fun but with faulty electronics and rattles galore

2020 MINI Hardtop 2 Door Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 7AM)

Second 2dr S I’ve had (other was a 2013). While the iconic package looks great, the electronics were quite faulty; I was unable to use Apple CarPlay for the first four months of ownership, and I’ve had a variety of issues with the speakers. In addition, there are so many things that rattle, likes the HUD, something in the dash, in the trunk area, etc. I wanted to be a Mini guy, but the poor quality vehicles (and even worse maintenance teams) make it very very difficult to consider. I’ve had the car 9 months, have driven less than 5k mi, and have taken it in for service more than five times already.

I love my Mini! :)

2017 MINI Hardtop 2 Door Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.5L 3cyl Turbo 6M)

I bought my 2017 Mini Cooper 2-Door Hardtop off a lease last year (in Summer 2020) with 38k miles. So far, she has been an absolute pleasure; the reviewer who said this is the kind of car you turn to look back at and smile when you park it is 100 percent on the money; this car isn't a practical decision but if you have that flexibility, it's worth the indulgence. My car has the base Cooper engine and I still feel that oomph when I gun it; it's a blast! My car has a few extras: heated seats, panoramic sunroof, and the 6.6" display that became standard in 2017 models; overall, this car feels much more deluxe than its price tag dictates. It is after all a BMW in British costume so you get the best of both worlds, and it drives like a video game dream; I find the curviest roads in upstate NY to zip down and my Mini never fails to deliver! Maintenance/service on this car are expensive; a couple of brake pads and a sensor replacement cost me $625 after just a few months of owning the car, but that's part of the deal for having a beautiful, comfortably appointed subcompact that still turns heads!

Best Yet

2019 MINI Hardtop 2 Door Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

I had a 2006 for 12 years, loved it, and gave it to our daughter. I never thought I'd love the 2019 as much. OMG, it's TWICE the fun to drive, and the best car I've owned in 50 years of driving, including 3 old Porsches. The Cooper S coupe can be hot in sport mode, but still have more than enough acceleration in green mode.I got the manual because the driving experience is awesome ! I always take the long way home. .Looks great, moonwalk grey- easiest car to keep clean I've owned.

Should have kept my 2015 model

2019 MINI Hardtop 2 Door Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.5L 3cyl Turbo 6M)

Recently upgraded my lease to the 2019 model in solaris orange. I regret the decision 100%. Acceleration is poor as the automatic gearbox struggle to work out which gear it should be in. In turn, this means there is significant turbo lag. On motorways this performance issue is obvious, especially when changing lanes. In city traffic, good luck accelerating out of a corner. Also gone in the 2019 model is the hidden dash storage above the glove box and the netting storage pouces on the sides of the footwells. I opted not to get the premium sound upgrade - a choice I regret. The audio quality is like that on a Versa or Rio with less speakers. A very sad Mini.

Mini tidbits

Seats are difficult sitting for long periods of time if you have any lower back issues. Electronics not intuitive for older generation! Love everything else
