This is the first and only car I've ever loved.
The mini is such an outstanding car to drive. I used to freak out trying to get my van up to speed getting on the highway, but in the Mini I know I can get into traffic without worrying about speed or handling. Although it would be great to have a car that never requires service or, when it does, isn't expensive, but in spite of these not being the case, driving the Mini itself is worth it. I really love this car and the turbo is great.
