This 2-seat convertible is the most fun I've had driving a car, ever! I wanted a 2-seater convertible that gets good gas mileage, and the MINI Cooper Roadster has delivered in spades.
The convertible top is easily opened or stowed, and the car looks great with top up or down, but who wants to drive a convertible with the top up, right? The tilt and telescoping steering wheel are easily adjusted, and there's plenty of room for someone over 6 feet like me.
The shifter is smooth as silk and the car has plenty of "get up and go", even without the turbo from the S and John Cooper Works versions. The car hugs the road, and loves the curves, but it's also a fun car for the daily commute.
If you're on the lookout for a fun, reasonably inexpensive convertible, I very strongly recommend taking a look at this car; I also looked at the Miata, but the MINI beat the Mazda at the pump (I'm averaging 32 mpg so far in mostly city driving - Miata was rated at 22 mpg city/28 mpg highway) and in comfort (my head grazed the top of the Mazda's roof with the top up, and the car just felt a little cramped for a big guy like me, even with the top down).
As MINI likes to say, let's motor!...read morehide
