i love it but no more by liz on 11/14/2011. Trim: 2004 MINI Cooper Base, Owned 7 years.
Pros: I love this car, but
Cons: money trap - repairs are extremely expensive and it needs a lot of them - now at 100000 miles and needs a new transmission - $3500.00 no joke. Clutch at 60000 miles (2000$) 2 sets tire (1200.00) leaky radiator (not fixed) Broken door latch (600.00), ongoing problem with oxygen sensors (4 trips to garage) 2 sets brakes with rotors. - the list just goes on and on.
Overall review: i am not sure the joy of driving this car is worth the money - and BMW is awful to deal with here. Maybe it is just because it was a fairly early model??

"Got Cooper?" by rachel in Houston on 07/08/2008. Trim: 2004 MINI Cooper Base, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Excellent turning ratio, handles very well on freeway, 6 air bags, steel bars in doors, good pick up at higher speeds, always cold air, great sound system. Lots of leg room (I'm 5'10")
Cons: slower pick up 1st gear (to be expected with 4 cyl), rear view mirror in line of sight.
Overall review: I should have bought one sooner. I absolutely love it and I get many comments from people.
