I wouldn't recommend a Mini Cooper with more than 50,000 miles on it ! I've been a mechanic for over 50 years !

I personally find the gas milage to be very good! It only costs me around $50 for a full tank (near empty) and it will last about a week (I don't go out of town often). The Mini is very good for safety, the front is meant to take all the damage in a head on crash internally air bags are on the left and right and in front of you so pretty good there too. The steering wheels are quite a lot tougher than other cars, I personally like them heavy but I know people who hate tough steering wheels. A full tank of premium gas will get me to Los Angeles and nearly back (2 hour drive each way). I do NOT recommend a Mini Cooper if you are going to have more than 2 people in your car or you need room to point large things like boxes. There are 4 door coopers but I'd recommend another 4 door car if you need room to put stuff in it. For perspective, I could barely get a 27' PC monitor in the back of the car after picking it up! Lol. I paid $22,000-ish (after all fees/DMV fees, etc.) for used Mini Cooper, 09, non-sport, 30k miles. You can get some pretty good deals on leases on some of their new cars (I saw a promo in their Hollywood Dealership saying $200 a month payments for 24 months).

I only have one thing to tell you, the dealer chain I work for discourages Them as a trade in, and we no longer sell extend mechanical break down insurance coverage for them! IF YOU want one real bad and have plenty of money for repairs and depreciation, dive in.
Positive: 100 %
