Mini Cooper/ Maxi problems by trekdriver on 04/06/2013. Trim: 2005 MINI Cooper S, Owned 8 years.
Pros: I bought the 100,000 mi. warranty supposed to be bumper to bumper, dealer said time for a free clutch replacement, but it would cost me over 800.00 for a flywheel and addl. parts. Dealer fixed all other problems with car.
Cons: Cooling fan repl. twice under warranty, supercharger repaired once under warranty, brakes replaced once under warranty. Now warranty finished, replaced A/C compressor twice, replaced dampener once, repl. belt tensioner once. repl all ft. end bushings once. Service is expensive on this car B.M.W. (bring my wallet)
Overall review: Would never buy another one

My Cooper S by Back in Black Cooper S from Lynnwood, WA. on 05/03/2010. Trim: 2005 MINI Cooper S, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Small but roomy inside, easy to park, tight turn ratio,corners like a race car, great gas miliage, gauges easy to read, h/k sound system is above what I expected.
Cons: Rear seat can be a problem for passengers, trunk space, certain parts can be expensive to purchase after warranty runs out but most of these things I knew about before purchasing the vehicle.
Overall review: If you're looking for a smaller car that gets great gas miliage and is a blast to drive buy one.

Zippy, killer cute, killer handling! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 10/26/2007. Trim: 2005 MINI Cooper S, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Gotta Liquid yellow JCW S with aero upgrades, etc. Incredibly great looking, cool, fast, agile wheels- more like a toy than car- too much fun!
Cons: Doors swing out too wide, engine at idle sounds like a diesel, toggles for windows, locks, easy to hit wrong one.
Overall review: Kicks on wheels!
