Yeah...the "Mini Cooper" and the "Smart" both REQUIRE the use of premium fuel. How crazy is that? You're buying a car, presumably, to save money on gasoline, but then you need to spend an extra .30 per gallon for the "sophsiticated" engines. No thanks. Of course, many of the people buying these aren't really trying to save on gasoline...they're trying to show the rest of us how ecologically responsible they are. The only global warming will be from the hot air these people spew.

My fear of Mini Cooper is high repairs. Very charming cars but too small for a dude who's six feet, 225.

How about a dude who's Seven feet plus?

Actually Angelo, my mini cooper S does take regular fuel and still gets 32 mpg.
Herculodge, I'm 6' and over 200.. no problems fitting in. What repairs? I had my last lease for 4 years and never any problems- change the oil (maintenance free from BMW) once a year.

Robert, you're the first to report excellent reliability. For a small car, it doesn't have a lot of competition, but for that money, I'd still buy a slightly used Maxima.
