Pros: 6 speed, very quick and sporty
Cons: ahhhh, dont know . the payment
Advice: great investmenti love my mini, very well worth the price . recommended highly
Pros: The manual transmission.
Cons: Not driving it enough.
Advice: If you aren't sure, test drive it. Your mind will be made up.I have only owned this car for two days, so my quality ratings are just that - two days. This is by far the most fun car I have owned. It is the first imported car I have owned, and I am amazed. This car sticks to the road like glue, has amazing pick up speed for a 4-cylinder engine - for any engine actually, and gets great gas mileage to boot. It's too bad the engineers at Chevrolet/Ford/Chrysler can't get together and come up with a vehicle like this. I'll try and add more as time passes, but this is one amazing car. If you're considering a purchase, go ahead... you won't be disappointed. Oh, I've seen some comments about resale value. Every used Mini I looked at was over $20,000, so I would say they actually have great resale value. If you know how do drive one, I recommend the 6-speed manual!
Pros: convertible top
Cons: run flats ... expensive to replace and flat tire light ... very sensitive
Advice: Go to the Mini USA site and design the one you want, dealers will work with you or order the exact one you want!Awesome car! Fun to drive and surprisingly enough very roomy ... at least in the front seat. I LOVE this car.
