2008 Mini Cooper Clubman Reviews
I purchased a 2008 Mini Cooper Clubman for my wife I was thinking we were buying a tin can that would be a commuter car. I was apprehensive about this tiny thing and refused to drive or ride in it for the first six months. We were going to dinner one night and decided to drive "Frances Melanoma". What a nice, peppy, well appointed, sport-ish car!! I couldn't help but smile. My wife says she gets compliments all the time and people are curious about how it drives and how economical it is. This car gets 42 MPG (that's right), takes about 20.00 to fill the tank and hauls two sets of golf clubs without a problem. It handles like it's on rails, has a "sport" mode and suicide doors on one side to my kids can get in without a problem. You rarely see two minis that are identical and that's why my wife loves it. Now, the engine although peppy, isn't what I would consider being the performance type. It gets you on the highway but you better have a clear path when going on. But, it gets 42 MPG that makes up for it. We love this car, it never fails us and "Frances" is a part of the family.
