Full of surprises

by BMRG from Cape Cod on Tue Oct 11 2011

After much internal debate ( is it too small, frivolous, impractical, etc...) I finally decided to take a chance on the Cooper Clubman. i spend most of my time commuting, or travelling between clients alone in the car, but I have two teenage boys and I am often the taxi. What I wanted was a reasonably priced car, that got excellent gas milage, and was a bit more fun than the Corrolla's, Civics, Accords I have been driving for 20 years. What I have is a car that met my expectations for nimble handling, and has far exceeded them regarding economy, comfort and practicality. Pros: Go cart handling is not an exageration. While not a fast car, it's a hoot to drive, corners flat and has amazing brakes. 34.1 MPG average as high as 39.8 for a 360 mile round trip to the Berkshires. Swallows way more stuff and people than you would imagine. 4 people and a weekends worth of luggage is reasonable. Really. ( No, it's not an SUV, you'll sit closer to each other, but it's surprisingly comfortable for 4 average sized adults, the extra lenghth of the clubman is a HUGE diffence from the std. Cooper) Cons: None so far, other than more people stop and ask me about this car, than the first 8 I've owned combined

Love it!

by Freshsqueezed from Buffalo, NY on Fri May 11 2012

What a great car! Both a a go-kart around town or a long distance cruiser. In town, I get the predicted mileage, but on the highway, when I ease off the gas, almost 45 mpg. The interior is very comfortable even for me (I'm 6'5"). It's handled great in the snow and even where the pavement ends. The only limitation is that it can either talke 4 people with little/no baggage or 2/3 people with lots of bags, but not both. Nonetheless, a winner in my books!

MINI COOPER

by Luinnil from Albuquerque on Sun May 07 2017

I love MINI cars! They are very stylish and fun to drive. They have a premium feel and one certainly pays for it. My biggest complaint is how little things are standard.

Like sitting in an airplane cockpit

by Muggsy from Tyler, TX on Sun May 20 2018

My favorite thing about the Mini Clubman is the interior. The seat is comfortable, even for long rides, and the controls, even though differently positioned from other vehicles, are within reach. There's plenty of headroom and legroom, even for a tall person. The car is fast and hugs the road on corners. A very fun drive. There's plenty of room in the back for two passengers, or, with the seats down, groceries or even a mini fridge you just picked up at Lowes. Great car on gas mileage, although premium gas is recommended, so the trip to the gas pump can be expensive if premium is high.

my 2011 MINI Clubman

by passion_of_the_bryce from Colorado Springs, CO on Wed Oct 24 2018

I purchased my 2011 MINI clubman base at 64xxx miles, and it now has close to 100k. In that time, I have replaced the clutch and the battery. Regular maintenance has been done as well. I absolutely love my MINI, they have so much character; like each one is different. It has been a very reliable car despite it being German engineering. The base model has a bit of trouble at high altitudes getting up steep hills so I definitely recommend the 6 speed manual, plus the S inevitably will have more problems than the base. I have driven it to the ski hill countless times and with the right tires, it did just fine even in white outs. I have gotten countless comments on how spacious the clubman actually is for a MINI, even the back seats! The suspension is pretty stiff, hence its amazing cornering capabilities, though when you hit a Colorado pot hole, it feels like you broke something; either in the car or yourself. but it rolls on! If I wasn't an avid camper and road tripper, I would always keep a MINI in my driveway. In fact once I'm in a position to own two cars, the second will definitely be another MINI; perhaps a new clubman. THE MPG is nothing short of amazing as well.
