Made for SUPERHEROS by superhero from Philadelphia Pa on 01/22/2012. Trim: 2011 MINI Cooper S, Owned 1 year.
Pros: suprisingly roomy inside. Super fun to drive. I can park anywhere...always a spot I can squeeze into. Super fast. Great pick up. If I have a big shopping day..I just put the back seats down and fill er up! I even bought a 9 ft by 7 ft area rug and was shocked when I was able to toss it right in! Had a flood..had to by a giant shop vac...fit right in. Awesome on gas! Drove 10 BMWs in a row since 1992. A friend let me drive his mini and I was hooked. Would NEVER go back. Im a minigirl for life!
Cons: speeding tickets!
Overall review: just go test drive one...youll be in love!

2011 JCW Conv. by Dre from Sac-to on 03/10/2014. Trim: 2011 MINI Cooper John Cooper Works Convertible, Owned 3 years.
Pros: I own a 2011 JCW convertible. Its a beast in a small package! I feel very confident driving this car fast on any kind of road. My friend who owns a 2002 z06 vette says my Mini drives on rails... very planted... and I agree 100%. 208hp brings smile on my face whenever I drive it... makes me wana go and explore places. Brakes are excellent!!! The JCW exhaust is fantastic (makes great noises and popping sounds). The interior is made out of good quality materials. MPG 22-36 for me... but usually 27 on average... and I like spirited driving. Did I mention the looks? My neighbor started drooling when she first saw it :)))
Cons: I heard its an overall BMW thing... horrible exterior rubber seals(ings) that are attached to the chrome linings going around windows/car. The car is 2011 and the rubber is cracking and falling apart :( My original car battery died so I had to buy a replacement. For some reason the stereo does not turn off when the key is not in the ignition ... something eats the battery. So far no reliability issues but I only have 30k on the car... lots of plastics under the hood though... I have doubts about keeping this car past 50k... maintenance is expensive.
Overall review: I'm really happy with this car and looking forward to the warm, spring, California days when I can take to roof down. Great looks, performance, handling, braking, sound (both stereo and exhaust). It's what the compact sports vehicle should be. I definetely recommend.

The perfect car for the adult who's a kid at heart. by Tim on 04/14/2012. Trim: 2011 MINI Cooper S, Owned 1 year.
Pros: The 2011 Mini Cooper S gives me the sport car fun and the ability to take my 2 yr old with me. I can comfortably fit my wife in the passinger seat with my 2 yr old in her full size car seat in the back. I can easly fit my Mini almost anywhere and it is a blast to drive. I like to to call it an adult go-cart. My wife and I have a 2010 Clubman along with my 2011 Mini Cooper S. I have both cars parked in our 2 car garage and still have room for my weight bench, treadmill , shelves and a fridge.The back seats fold down allowing the full cubical space from back of the front seets to the back window to be used.
Cons: Personalizing can be very expensive. Simple plastic cosmetic parts are an average $100 plus.
Overall review: I love my Mini Cooper S. It has to be the best time driving a car i have had and it has alot of utility uses as well. I would recommend to anyone to drive one and see how fun Mini's are. Mini's have alot of different options to help personalizeas well and I have yet to see one that looks the same. I have seen alot of Minis through club meet ups and on the road and they are all different.
