Pros Engine, handling, still a MINI while providing more space.
Cons Typical MINI corky controls (easy to get used to)
Summary Cooper Clubman is a great choice for someone who needs the additional space while offering what's best about a Cooper hatch back. Have been driving one for three years with 0 issues. Once you get used to the controls, it's a joy to drive, long commutes are now something that I look forward to. The sporty handling and acceleration can not be beat. I can't think of any other small car that can match the performance and the feeling of the MINI cars.
Pros Looks cool, fun drive, and it comes with a lot of customizations.
Cons Not a very reliable car- all kinds of things start going wrong with MINIs after about a year.
Summary I had a MINI that had nothing but problems after the first year of ownership. I loved the car. It was fun to drive, but it ended up being very expensive to fix and maintain.
Here is a brief list of some of the problems I had:
Tires were expensive to replace and I literally needed to replace about once a year.
Transmission went bad shortly after 60,000 mile warranty.
Rear windshield motor died.
It really was a cool car, and it was the first car I bought brand new. MINI gives you the opportunity to really customize it the way you want it, but it just got to the point where I didn't know how much more it was going to cost me. Within the first 2 years, I spent over $3,000 in general maintenance and repairs. If all of that doesn't scare you away, it really is a fun car to drive as long as you're not concerned about reliability.
Pros Cute & perky
Cons My mechanic works on my Acura TSX and he says the clutch will go 1st and thats $5K as the whole engine has to be removed before getting to the transmission.
Pros Its been 2 years since i first drive my friend's mini cooper and since then i dream of having one. PS: its HOOTT to drive. Looking at car broucher makes me up to date about mini cooper. The Mini cooper clubman is one of the best. I love being unique and d
Cons Mini is not cheap.
Summary Overall Mini is a good buy and worth the money you spend. You can see the difference between those car that are cheaper. Just the fact MINI uniqueness (quirky look), safety and driveability, the interior (oh how im so inlove with you Mini Clubman). So hurry up and get your own mini. I start saving to have mine pretty soon.
Thanks for your submission!
