An AWD Mini Countryman was on the agenda. Spoke to Frank the week before and he guaranteed me they had two. When I entered the showroom, there it was: gorgeous, filled with the amenities I was looking for and the price range I had expected. All of the associates we dealt with were super friendly. I would highly recommend Mini of Tempe. Ask for Frank, he is very knowledgeable and will do his best to get a great deal for you.
THIS IS MY FOURTH MINI. NEVER HAD A PROBLEM

PERFECT FOR THE CITY, LOVE THE SELF PARKING FEATURE. OUTSTANDING FOR LONG DISTANCE RIDES. AN IDEAL CAR WITH SUPERB PERFORMANCE, ABLE TO ACCOMODATE LARGE AND BULKY
LOADS. OUTSTANDING AND HIGHLY RELIABLE SERVICE FROM PASSPORT MINI Alexandria, VA
I purchased a recently traded-in used Dodge Challenger at MINI of Tempe. Since my visit to the Valley was short, and the car was still undergoing dealership inspection, it required quite some coordination to get the car out of the shop, have it thoroughly driven and get the paperwork done in a timely fashion. I felt lucky to have Jason Oldenberg and the sales staff at MINI of Tempe assist me. I was able to test-drive the car multiple times, inspect the differential and transmission fluids in the service center, have an extra oil change, and even have a ride back to my newly purchased Challenger once I dropped off my rental car at PHX. I had been aware all along that I was a picky customer who had a lot of questions and who wanted to inspect every little detail of the vehicle he intended to buy. But Jason was there to answer all my questions. Chris from the finance office handled the paperwork efficiently and seamlessly. In sum, I felt welcomed, never pushed. I came away as a happy customer.
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.
Quality dealership with all the amenities. Service personnel were helpful and eager to make my visit short and sweet. I was able to use a great loner car when my Mini’s service would take extra time to finish. Much appreciated!
The maxi-mini (Countryman S) is very nice!

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 love a new car, but hate the buying experience.....usually! But I bought my first MINI in 2003 and just traded it in for a 2018. Buying a car at MINI is not your USUAL buying experience. There were no games and no gimmicks for starters. Dana Halligan was our salesperson and she was incredible. I never for a moment felt pressured. She was very informative and helped me obtain the best financing. Even after the sale I have called her with operating questions and she couldn't be more accommodating. If you want an awesome, fun car to drive and a buying experience that shows respect head to MINI NORTH SCOTTSDALE and ask for Dana!!!
Coolest car I've ever owned.
by Hampole from San Francisco

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 first met Dana over the phone when I decided to actually begin the process to lease a new Mini. I had been a very satisfied Mini owner for 13 years and was still in my 2004 Mini at 167,000 miles. Dana was extremely helpful via phone and email and I was almost positive of my choice before I left my home in Tucson to finally lease my car. I have always liked the Mini dealerships for their cleanliness, fun colors and friendly personnel. As soon as I drove up I could see my car and knew that was the one for me. Dana was extremely friendly and helpful throughout the long paperwork process and has been in touch quite frequently offering help and reminding me that I can call on her for any questions I may have. So far I love my new Mini and am slowly plowing through the manual to find out a manner of things.
Quirky style & fun to drive
by Purefairy from Groveland

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!
I had an issue with a part I bought from Mini. They warranty their parts for 24 months and mine failed after 25 months. They did right by me with no hassles! Sean the Service Manager was sympathetic and incredibly helpful. I have always gotten great service there. The facilities are very comfortable and they provide nice loaner cars. I hear horror stories about so many dealerships. It's nice to be able to write a glowing review of one!
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 . :-(
I don't have much to report either way; good or bad. Frankly, I'm not very observant or critical of any service provided by any vendor I do buiness with until a problem persists that can't or won't be resolved.
Mini of N. Scottsdale has met any problem my car has had with good faith and within a reasonable timeframe. I could point to the transmission replacement after only owning my Mini for a few weeks as case in point where it could have made my Mini experience an "uh oh, here we go!" situation. The problem did take a longer than expected timeframe, however, Mini kept me updated as to the cause which made sense and provided a very nice loaner vehicle that made the extended repair time of little or no inconvenience. When the car was ready it really was ready as no problems persisted and the car has been all that I could have expected and more. Best car I have ever owned, and will likely remain that way for many many Minis and years to come.
Can't think of a car I'd rather own or a dealership with which to do business.
Practical yet Exciting

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!
Everyone at Mini was great. I leased 3 years ago, and James Kelly was our Sales guy. He is now the GM, but was still very willing to assist with the new lease and was helpful. His entire team did a great job. The lady in finance was especially nice and efficient.

I love my car. It is very very good on gas. I love that it moves quickly when necessary. My car is very comfortable and a great car for travel.
We couldn't be happier with our experience at MINI North Scottsdale. It was Fun picking out My daughters first new car with Paul Ebeyer and Tracey had us out of there so quickly !It was a great experience for us! Truthfully I always drag my feet in going to a dealership,but this one will make you want to go back!

So good I bought another new Mini. Reliable, fun to drive and great
on gas. Never a problem. Better than a lot of more expensive cars
Super fun car to drive with excellent gas mileage also! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for something truly unique and super fun to drive! Excellent handling, great power from the turbo 4 cylinder engine with unbelievable gas mileage!
fits comfortably 4 people, plenty of room. 2 sunroofs. great sound system. love the interior.
Drives smoothly. Has a green,medium, and sport mode. Best of all is gas mileage so far is 34 to 38. I drive over 150 miles a week. Love my car.
Much better in everything compared to other dealerships. They knew my name and had a file of my internet communications with them. I really like it. Will be back soon to buy my car.
Brand new, fun to drive!

This is a great car. It is fun to drive and fun to get the “Mini wave” when you see another Mini. Gets good mileage as well
