Quirky style & fun to drive
by Purefairy from Groveland
December 15, 2018
I test drove all the different models of this car & instantly knew I wanted it but I needed 4 doors because no room in the back of the 2 door, the sunroofs give the illusion of a bigger car. It's so much fun to drive, the sport option makes it very nippy. I love the style too. Comfortable seating & lots of extra options made it the perfect car for me. You can park it anywhere. Awesome!
In my opinion Rydell Chevrolet is one of the best car dealer in Northridge. Every time that I need help they are there for me. I really recomende Rydell to all my friends. Keep the good work, and thank you for being a nice and professional people.
Not Mean to have Children in the back seat
by Yessi from Monterey Park, CA

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 . :-(
I can't speak highly enough about this establishment. Chris and Tyler were especially courteous and made our buying experience the best we've ever had from a car dealership. In case you're thinking, "Duh, when you buy something that expensive, they have to kiss your @$$," we bought a used Jeep for less than 30K. They're just good people, regardless of who you are or what you're buying.
Didn’t enjoy this car one bit.

Found the car to be very harsh overall. While the newer 3 cylinder turbo was a much needed improvement pep wise, and was the only thing that pleasantly surprised me. Harsh ride, very uncomfortable seats, and while I could make an argument for the interior styling to be cool and unique, I can’t say I walked away impressed by anything about this car. I was very disappointed.
I was really nervous about the whole car buying experience but the staff at Galpin made the experience quick and painless. I received the best deal and a car that was better then I dreamed. I would recommend Galpin to my grandma. I???m so pleased!!!!
I love mi Mini
by petunia from phoenix, az

I love my mini, drove it for over 5 years and It was a blast! reliable, not a single recall, never failed. Fast to drive, excellent to accelerate and pick up speed in the freeway. Easy handling
The guy in charge seemed willing to sell at a decent price. But they ran my credit (which is excellent) and then basically refused to attempt finance the vehicle even though I was going to put $3500 down on a $10000 purchase.
They suggested I put it on my credit card...
You be the judge of that interaction.
my 2011 MINI Clubman
by passion_of_the_bryce from Colorado Springs, CO
October 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.
I would like to thank you for the wonderful and delightful experience my husband and I had. We had first went to ,,,,,, BMW, test drove an used X3, wasn't what I was looking for, the ambiance there wasn't very pleasant so we decided to leave and go to K1 motors . That was the best choice we made. The whole experience at k1 from beginning to end was fantastic! We will definitely be referring friends and family to Alan. I love my new X3. Thanks a million! You have a very satisfied customer. Best Wishes and more power to you Alan. Tina
Nicest car i’be ever owned with low mileage
by Minicooperhype from Brooklyn ohio
November 6, 2018
So far the car has been running great. It’s small realiable and fast. When the car is on, I can’t even tell. And it’s a gas saver, perfect car!
I would rate European Auto House 5 star, service was great and fast, staff are friendly and helpful and answered all questions and concerns that I had.
The maxi-mini (Countryman S) is very nice!
by CountryWoman from Glenmoore, PA
November 20, 2018
I am looking to replace a BMW X3 with manual transmission. Not many cars fit the small SUV niche with manual transmission. But the Countryman S does! Though, I think I'll buy the 2017 rather than the 2016, just to get a wee bit more space.
I purchased my vehicle from them over three years ago (which was a wonderful experience) and only go to this dealer for my services and repairs (prices are reasonable). The facility is clean and the people who work there are friendly and helpful. It also a bonus that it's close to a mall that I can walk to if I don't want to stay at the dealership while my car is being worked on. They will call me if there are any issues or when my car is ready. If I do stay, the lounge area is big with a nice size tv. There are free refreshments available.
like it alot

I really like the car just couldn't afford it right now. I am hoping to find another one in my price range. Really like cars.ccars.cocars.com.
Had a flat tire on my new Mini with Run Flat tires. We were 300 miles from home in the middle of nowhere and had to have our car towed 20 miles to Mini of Valencia, the closest mini dealer. We just walked in and spoke with Jessica, the service advisor. She was pleasant and professional. She made sure that our tire was replaced in a timely manner and coordinated with the dealership from which we purchased the car to make sure that costs were paid through dealer warranty. Mini Roadside service was unable to find this dealership so I had to have the car towed by another service at my own expense. Jessica took the extra step to submit for reimbursement. Jessica did a great job of keeping the customer needs in mind. Kudos to her and Mini of Valencia.

I wanted a car that would be good on gas as fun as well and I found the minis to be the type better suited for my needs.
The perfect transaction from sale to delivery. Jem Motors is a very professional dealership and the staff is very helpful, honest and very accommodating in all aspects. My vehicle was transported from CA to PA without a glitch. Very professional organization. Will definitely purchase another vehicle from Jem Motors.
So far, so very good!

This car is FUN to drive and has all the extras I wanted. The interior is sleek and modern. Has pep, especially in Sport mode.
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.

Coolest car I've ever owned.
by Hampole from San Francisco
December 19, 2018
Amazing car. So cool and cute at the same time. It drives just like a BMW with all the options added in. Can't recommend the Cooper S any more than is possible. The turbo charge is incredible and the drive is immaculate.
I bought my mini there a few years back and got a great price from them on the purchase of my Countryman... no pressure, just honest dealing
I continue to rave about the after sales service that South Bay continues to provie me.
There is a new Mini Dealer closer to me in Santa Monica but I continue to drive 45 mins each way to SB, it is well worht the extra effort to me.
I have never been disappointed with the care that has been extended to me.
I need to give recognition to the service manager "Lino"... Even though my car is out warranty he is the main reason that I continue to bring my car to Southbay . He is very professional and always willing to go the extra mile to be certain that things are right for all of his customers...in fact, Lino and the service department will be the reason that when I am ready to purchase another Mini it will be because of the after sales servie etc.
If you want a great price on a Mini as well as great service, South Bay in my opinion is the Only Way

by Martin from Toronto
December 27, 2018
great car, unfortunately terrible smell from the air filter. dealer changed the filter etc etc 4 times. still stinks. Mini refuses to take responsibility of the fact. they are aware but, is your problem now.after driving BMW for years , first time that I have to say, this mini STINK.
I worked with John Won and Henry Wu. Both were very responsive and easy to work with. They got me the car I wanted at a great price. They delivered the car to my office. The entire transaction was quick, easy and painless.
It’s the most fun you can have an a car, that’s no
by RF. Mini from Northern neck, Virginia
September 21, 2018
This car met most of all my needs. It was the most fun to drive of all the vehicles I won’t except the convertibles it’s very fast, stylish, and very unique.
Great experience. The dealership had the 3 series I was looking for. It was the best deal in town and customer service. Thank you Manny for making the process easy. Also, the facilities are amazing. I will definitely recommend anyone I know to go there.
Practical yet Exciting
by Colemp05 from Snellville, Ga
August 1, 2018
A thrill to drive. You get the fun sports car vibe while still being practical with the 4 doors. It's essentially a street legal go kart!
My first time buying a car and I must say my experience was great. Overall the whole process went smoothly. Now I have my dream car and Eliana was able to make that possible for me. She was very helpful and answered all my questions.
My most prized possession!
by Nickicashew from New York, NY
July 2, 2018
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.
Plenty of room, great gas mileage, love the interior and exterior styling. Great sound system, and Bluetooth! A fun summer car for me!! Mini love ??!!
