"No more defending the Mini"
Financial Times Motoring - 9th September 2000
..It does not feel like a terrible loss. Indeed we should all be happy to see the back of what has become a terrible little car
A Mini is uncomfortable to get into, uncomfortable to drive and uncomfortable to get out of. It has weedy throttle, woolly steering and wooden brakes. There is very little space in the front, the back or the boot and it is not even cheap any more.
