Disadvantages: Not the most comfortable, bumpy ride with run flats, difficult to get comfy driving position, costly
I have a 53 plate red mini cooper with a white roof and white stripe. I absolutely love it.......but it costs me a fortune to run. The insurance is high, it drinks petrol like it's going out of fashion, and repairs are dreaded! I am on egg shells whenever it goes in for an MOT or service as im worried what else they will find wrong. The tyres are run flats and are £120 each. However it does give me peace of mind when driving on the motorway daily, that unless it blows up i won't have to stop to change a tyre!
The boot is ridiculously small, but as there is only me in the car the majority of the time, i have just about managed. Any trips to ikea, or other shopping sprees are a definate no go though! I even struggle to get a weekend case in the boot, and now tend to just throw anything thats medium sized straight onto the back seat, bypassing the boot.
I love my little mini but i now really need to be sensible and part ex it for something a little bit bigger and more economical to run. I will hate to see it go though, and one day in the future may become a mini owner for the second time........
Summary: Not the most economical but run to drive and sticks to the road round corners
