Honestly, I find it amazing that so many people are now trying to buy a Mini Cooper. Well, purchasing a Mini Cooper does have its advantages especially if you are living in San Francisco. For instance, you will be able to fit in one of the few and precious parking spaces which the city has to offer.
You will also be able to fit more seamlessly through the weaving and dodging of traffic amongst the crazy California drivers if you buy a Mini Cooper. Buying this vehicle would also ensure that you look young and fashionable. In my opinion, the whole thing is a stupid trend because the Mini Cooper just seems to be overrated and overpriced in my eyes.
My cousin decided to buy a Mini Cooper about eight months ago. His experiences with this vehicle certainly do a lot to back up my own opinions. He cashed in big time on the whole dot com boom before it all went bust. As a result, he had a bit of money to throw around, and so he decided to buy a Mini Cooper with some of his savings.
Unfortunately, he has regretted that decision since that day. The Mini Cooper turned out to be expensive to maintain and it breaks down often. My friend used to drive a Honda and so his repair bills were always quite modest. However, his repair bills have really gone through the roof since he purchased a Mini Cooper. He also discovered that the mileage is not that great for such a little car.
My friend’s build is the silliest aspect about his decision to buy a Mini Cooper. You see, the dude is over six feet tall and so he naturally has long legs. My big, hulking friend looks just outright absurd inside a Mini Cooper because he can barely fit in his little stylish car.
He also has to spend the first twenty minutes or so just stretching his legs and getting them to work again when he gets out. You would think that he would have considered this before deciding to buy a Mini Cooper, but he never did. I guess some people just are not practical.
