Great car for towing my 17 foot Pontoon by GT6Jerry on 09/28/2011. Trim: 2008 MINI Cooper Base, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Plenty of power, great looks, good towing capabilities, great fuel milegae, and perfect for two people. Since our son is now on his own, the MINI is perfect for just my wife and I. We use it for almost everything from everyday work transit to vacationing and trips. It has plenty of room for groceries with the seats folded down. The seats are firm and hold you in place while cornering. I've had some so-called "sporty" cars in the past and none can compair the the MINI. I hope they don't change anything cause they've got it right!!
Cons: Back seat is a bit cramped but hey, if you want more room you can always opt for the Clubman...
Overall review: I love the styling and great fuel mileage. I average 34 to 36 consistantly when I'm not towing my 17 foot pontoon. Yes, I said my 17 foot pontoon. I bought my car brand new and started looking for a hitch for it. Finally, a company call Curt Hitches agreed to design, and install a hitch on my MINI for free. Of course they kept the template for future MINI owners who want hitches. I have a 17 foot Low Pro Angler 2 Pontoon that you can't even tell is behind my MINI when it's in tow. The MINI has power to spare and it just goes to show you don't need a gas sucking truck or SUV to go fishing. Oh yeah, it does drop my mileage down to around 28 MPG when I'm towing it. Thats better than most trucks get empty, and I turn more heads too!!!
