Good car but not for everyone by LargoMini on 09/23/2011. Trim: 2009 MINI Clubman Base, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Great gas mileage Amazing handling for a wagon Very easy to use stick shift Comfortable seats
Cons: Cheap feeling materials Quality only average Weak body panels Will have to throw the tires away after only one year Incomplete instrument panel Third door should be on the left
Overall review: This is a decent, fun car to drive. The trunk space is much larger than its smaller cousins but this doesn't hurt the handling. It sips fuel even if you're hard on the gas, I always average about 35 mpg, 9 more than my previous car so the smaller gas tank doesn't bother me. BMW's quality control is clearly dropping. My last car, a Dodge, was SHODDY quality and the MINI isn't much better. Also, the controls are so British - they're a mess. Why do the wipers have only three speeds? You can't adjust the intermittent settings either. I wish they would make power adjustable seats that could also tilt at the base. My last two cars had problems that a temp/battery gauge picked up. The MINI has no gauges for those! The body's metal is FLIMSY. I've never owned a car that dented so easily! My dad's truck was in a light hail storm one night (No dents!). My MINI would have been ruined if it was outside. I do like this car but unless BMW makes several big improvements, my next car won't be a MINI.
