Great dealership. All of their sales people are professional and patient with all the customers. They will work with you on your budget and do not sell you on add-ons you don't need. Chris the manager is one of the best in town. Highly recommend.
My most prized possession!

This car suits me perfectly. This is my 3rd Mini - I've been a loyal customer for many years. First I owned the convertible. As much fun as it was to have, it wasn't practical. There was very little space for cargo or passengers. Then I had the Countryman and it was perfect. I didn't think I could do better until I got my second Countryman and this time bought the Sport. It's an incredible ride. I have great control behind the wheel. And although I don't have the convertible anymore, I have the sunroof and I love the look of the hardtop.
I came to the dealership looking for a fully loaded Countryman S All4 John Bremner assisted me with locating this car in inventory, the car was off site at a close by location. My brother and I drove with John in another car to that garage location, once arrived we say that beautiful Cherry Black Metallic color and saw the interior and fell in love with the car. John B let us drive the car in a close distance near the dealership, after driving I signed the credit app and credit disclosure and told him "Lets do this!" John B had appointment with another customer so I was turned over to meet Akiba Anker the General Sales Manager. Akiba mentioned to me the process and how long it would take from BMW Financial (Mini) to get the approval. Akiba was busy himself too helping his staff so I definitely commend him multi-tasking. After some 10-15 minutes I went into finance with my brother and I to meet Aaron (Mini Finance Manager), Aaron was processing the paperwork, I got Lease Protection and Tire and Wheel so I don't have to worry about any expenses during or at the end of the lease. So highly recommend new and existing buyers to have those amounts rolled over into the loan of the lease. It increased my payment by another $55-$60 however at least I'm covered for Lease Protection ($5000k) max and also Tire and Wheel if I bend my rims or if I get a nail in my tires. You would be a fool if you didn't get these insurance, unless your rich and have extra money lying around like Scrooge McDuck swimming in a money bin. All together the buying experience was awesome at Mini of San Franciso.

Fun to drive, plenty of room. Great features. Nice cargo area! Nice acceleration. Rugged and built like a bull. Love the twin turbo engine and sunroof.
Second experience buying a car from here. Always great people to look after you and a great choice in cars. Thank you Rose!
Really cool but complicated car

This car is a beautiful style for a 4-door, AWD vehicle. It's just fun to look at.
The car is bigger inside than you would think, and it is taller off the ground. I can reach my mailbox from the window no problem.
The only reason I didn't give it five stars for all categories is that the interior is very complicated and you need to study the owners manual carefully to figure out all the features it has. It has more switches and screen commands than a passenger jet cockpit. Maybe its because I always drove older cars.....
But the features are cool if you can find them.
Aside from that this car handles very well and you can easily park in in any spot. Good visibility out the windows. Gets good mileage too if you turn off the 'Sport' mode switch. ;)
Everything was very fast and easy. Sales men were very friendly, and actually were willing to work with you. Good deals were offered. They followed up after making sure everything went well. Highly recommend!
Cute, slick and affordable

I've recently purchased my 2015 Mini Countryman. It's certified preowned with 29,600 mi. Has all the amenities and I look cute in it. Love the racing style and leather interior. Sun and moon roofs are gorgeous. It handles well and did I say I look cute in it?
I've been wanting a MINI Cooper ever since the new models came out 15 or so years ago. "B" was very helpful with all aspects of my visit, including the test drive and other logistics. My blue MINI Hatch (2011, 6-spd manual) is in great shape and I'm loving it!
Great car for small families or singles.

I love this car!! It handles fabulous in rain, snow and of course sunshiny days! We have had ours for two years and so far so good. Our family is growing (fur babies) and unfortunately this car is quickly becoming too small for even our three person family. The only other negative is that the back seat was not designed to actually accommodate a person back there. It tends to get hot/cold quickly because there are no direct vents for the back seat. This makes for a grumpy kids and panting pup. But other than that this car is AMAZING! I am always amazed at the amount of stuff and can fit in the "trunk" . A definite buy for a single or very small family.
Was making a private sale of our 2015.5 XC60. They allowed me to book a full inspection with very little notice, and did a professional job on the work. They even provided their observations on the prospective buyer.
Most reliable car I have owned.

This car is perfect for any driving circumstances. If you want to have fun, have a long commute, or need an everyday car, this car is the one.
Although I havent bought the car from them but i liked the overall process and prompt reaponses from shift sf. They brought the veichle to my door but i could not able to meet due to an emergency. This was handled very politly by the driver and appreciate it. Thanks
I had a 2003 Mini, and I finally was ready to let her go. It was a scary prospect to upgrade, and I had NO idea how much cars had changed!
The process to identify the car was the hardest part. Once I contacted Mini of Marin, it was easy from start to finish. So grateful for the experience, and I LOVE my new Mini!!!
Not Mean to have Children in the back seat

I got my Mini Countryman new in 2015 and I just loved it and I still do, fast forward to now 2018 I have a 1yr old baby and every time I get him out of the car seat he is drench in sweat even though I am freezing with a full AC blowing, I always wonder why is he sweating when I am freezing... Well, the reason why is because there are no vents in the back seat of the countryman and air can't get to him, and I just thought he was a hot sweaty baby. No wonder he hates it when I try to but him on the car seat, he also hates it when the windows are down just a little while driving. Since discovering this BAD engineering in the countryman I have place a fan so, my baby is always comfortable and I am currently looking into trading it in my country man for a car that has vents in the back seats . :-(
shaun Avant is a very nice man. he was calm and cool and I really appreciated his honest approach. He did not pressure me at all which was wonderful. I am very excited about my new car. great experience. will highly recommend to friends
I like the mini cooper coutryman

I like the how the car looks and how it performance and good value for the money and the exterior styling of the mini cooper countryman.
Buying a used car is not a fun process but Brian was honest and addressed my concerns as if he was buying the car! We are a three MINI family and would not buy from anyone else except Brian at MINI of Marin.
Most entertaining car I've ever owned.

It has some MAJOR pep! The torque is AMAZING it rides like it's on rails !!!! Super comfortable too! It also easily fits car seats for the family man.
I was met immediately upon arrival. They extremely polite and helpful. The only issue was my lead service person went on vacation and I kinda got lost in the shuffle.
