Just picked up up my new 2010 S yesterday. Took it out for 250 miles today and have to say the new new MINI is awesome. Cornering, handling and acceleration are much better than the 02-06 model. The new turbo engine is smooth and reaches 70 very quickly. The brakes are much better too. I love the new transmission, changing gears is now a lot less ratchety or clunky. I love this car.

This is the most enjoyable car i have ever owned. It puts a smile on my face every time I get in and push the Start button. I drive it gently for the first few minutes to allow for warm-up. Once warmed up, the car takes on the persona of a racing car. A light press on the gas and the engines winds up like a banshee. One feels as though one is in complete control of this car. Any curve at any speed. Like a go-cart but much more powerful. On the open highway the car instantly leaps ahead to whatever speed you need. Very satisfying and very secure,

this car is about as much fun as you can have on the streets. the S model has a 1.6L Turbo engine and is plenty quick - handles fantastic. i thought my wife would like the car more but then i figured it out. this car must be actively DRIVEN, if you don't like doing that and want all the driving assitance you can get this car is probably NOT for you. Also, this car is a sporty car with a short wheel base and 17" wheels - that spells a harsher ride. the non-S model will ride softer and be slower... If zig zagging in and out of the slow moving bohemiths that litter the road ways then go take a test drive - quick! !

After 50 years of driving without a single ticket, I got my first speeding ticket the week after I drove my new Mini off the lot. That was a shock -- I had no idea how fast I was going. The car drives like a finely tuned instrument. The gears shift with the most satisfying ca-chunk, and everything about the way it handles signals quality and security. It slips into all the parking spaces the monster SUVs leave open, and turns on a dime. I absolutely LOVE this car!

Absolutely love this car. Bought it after returning from a deployment, and can't drive it enough. There's not a lot of room in the boot for anything, but was able to close out a small storage unit with no one else riding along thanks to the rear folding seats. This car is quite nimble, and also handles excellently on snow and Ice, The Sport Mode button should be reversed to where you can turn it off instead of having to turn it on. It feels sluggish without turning it on. All around, greatest car I've ever driven!

WOW should of purchased one long ago. buy the convertible it sure is cool and works great. Comfort was a 4 not in room I am 6 + it is a stiff suspension you feel big bumps. Nice to have great gas mileage plus awesome power and I mean awesome.. drove both the S and regular; S cooper has the power but regular wasn't bad and if you don't want to pay extra insurance buy the regular. I purchased the S I like power. I didn't drive the JW probably should have but insurance would of doubled. Mini world is going to be cool......

I purchased a 2010 Mini Cooper S last year and I still enjoy driving this car. It is so convenient, as the size allows me to park (almost) everywhere and being that I currently live in the city, it makes it that much easier. Must make warning, I owned the car for two days and got my first ever speeding ticket. The six speed transmission is just a bit faster than my previous car. I also do quite a lot of highway driving so the cruise control helps with obtaining excellent MPG (35-38MPG per tank of gas). I am a fairly petite person, but my taller/larger friends fit surprisingly well in the car, although I do not use the back seats - golf clubs do not fit in the "trunk" The only other downside to having a passenger is that the car does not go as fast... Otherwise I love it. May actually go with the Clubman S next time around but for now I will continue to motor on in mini cooper S !!

Love It!

by from Virginia on February 1, 2012

I haven't had my Mini a long time, but I am very satisfied with everything about it. Everyone from the dealership to the US Mini Home Office have been extremely helpful and friendly.
