Car was exactly what I wanted.
Great handling on the open road and the hills. Got 34.4 mpgs. Car is Penn State blue. Will look even better at a Penn State game.
I purchased this vehicle for my wife for commuting to work an hour each way. I started to drive this vehicle and found it to be Reliable, Safe, well built vehicle and FUN to drive!
Fun car to own and drive while being economical
My wife and I owned this car for six years as second owners. Even though it requires premium gas, it's economical to drive averaging about 32 MPG for us including long trips and 35 mile commute mostly on the highway. It's spacious for hauling some stuff including eight foot long boards, but can seat four people (two in the back are cramped, but okay). Smart looking car with a lot of performance because of the 4-cylinder turbo charged engine, fun to drive the six speed manual transmission. Six way manually adjustable front seats with heaters, automatic climate control, excellent sound system with manufacturer installed USB/IPod adapter. Mini dealer service, when required, has been outstanding at MINI/BMW in Annapolis. Why four stars for comfort? It's a small car so it rides a little rougher than a larger car, but still not annoying. Rear leg room is cramped. Why four stars for Interior Design? The analog speedometer is in the middle of the dash, but digital is in front of the driver. Reliability is four stars because of some issues that year's engine had, but MINI fixed everything under warranty (even though the warranty had expired) so there shouldn't be further similar problems. I'm sorry to let the car go, but stick shift in commute isn't as much fun as when I was younger.
Most Fun Car that I have owned
This car was dependable, and great fun to drive. Great gas mileage. Best acceleration that you can get for a 4 cylinder engine. Truly just great fun to drive.
Fun car to drive! Gas saver!
I chose the 2009 MINI Cooper S Clubman 6 speed, 4-cyl, 1.6LTurbo over the 2009 Ford Mustang GT. I chose it for its tremendous savings at the pump, style and personality of the car. Looking at it and driving it are just what you imagine when you first lay eyes on a MINI! They are quirky and zippy cars with amazing personality to any driver especially in a manual transmission. I chose the racing red color with dual black hood stripes. The MINI Cooper S Clubman has a third door and has plenty of space for all my tall friends. It has surprising cargo space. You will fall in love with the huge dashboard! It is fast from the stop and once its going you want to drift through every corner and drive to do every errand possible! The only drawback that I would consider is the Cost to Maintain the car. Parts are very expensive and hard to find. Have a mechanic who you can trust and is knowledgeable about working on a MINI. Stay close to your regular maintenance schedule because it will save you a lot of headaches when repairs need to be done. However, with any car if you take care of it MINIs are built and backed by BMW so they are ultimately built to last. Test drive and you will be a MINI believer! It really is the most fun car experience you will ever have! Enjoy!
The most reliable fun car I have owned
These mini coopers are so much fun and are great on gas mileage. It has more power than any small car I have ever owned. I can't imagine owning any other vehicle.
2009 clubman s
I bought this clubman online 160 miles from my home. I have been searching for a used cooper for about 8 months in the price range I wanted.When I found this one it was everthing on my list and the price was right .Now all I do is drive drive drive I can stop its fun ,handles like a toy train, The gas miles was, well 35.5 on the high way and 26 ish in town so whats not to love.Some US car would have cost more then this and not been 1/2 the car.More space inside then you think and the dash is just the coolest I ever see.If you drive one and are looking for a small fast sporty car you can't leave this one out.
excellent everyday car
I have a few friends that rave about their mini. I had to try one. After the third test drive I had to have one. I picked my favorite things. Heated seats, chocolate brown, Bluetooth, and the result? Perfection. Its roomy, great gas mileage, fun and so so cute.
