2006 MINI Cooper

by Bloodmuse on 10-12-2012
A bit pricy, but best fun I've had with handling
MINI Cooper is a fun car, no question. Driving on fast, curvy roads is a total blast. It does as advertised and built with great quality. Not that comfortable due to its small size and low head space, but if that doesn't bother you, this car is worth the $$$.

2006 MINI Cooper

Go for the Type S
Was not the best car to drive – I found it to be a sticky/jerky ride. The type S had a much smoother ride compared to this model. It’s a fairly spacious car considering the size when you view it outside – granted the back seats aren’t fit for tall people (as with most smaller cars). It was a peppy car, but the jerkiness of the ride gave me motion sickness (something I never get). I wouldn’t recommend this car unless it was the type S.

2010 MINI Cooper

Trim: COOPER S Camden

Like being allowed to drive a go-kart on the street!
I had wanted a mini since the day they re-launched in North America when there was a waiting list to get one. Common concerns arose around size and practicality from family and friends, which convinced me to move into a more practical 4-door hatch. When that car had an issue and it was time to trade-in I decided that I would make the mini move! I did not consult those over-practical friends and family this time, but rather took cues from Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear who loves the mini. There is no going back for me now, the mini is a lifestyle car, I feel like I'm driving a very fast go-kart, and love that. The car is responsive, and quick. Overall the comfort is good, I find the sports suspension a bit jarring when I have a cup of coffee in my hand, but maybe that's not a bad thing as coffee should be firmly stowed in cup holder, not in hand while driving manual transmission vehicle. There have been trips to Ikea made, and I have fit 4 large humans in there for short trips. Fuel consumption is not quite as stellar as I would have expected from such a small car, but it is not anything that would dissuade me from buying a mini, certainly it is better than other compact cars out there. Overall I love the car, would recommend, and will likely consider another for my next. GO MINI. peace out
