I've never driven a Mini before, but the people I know who appreciate cars and have driven them before have only had positive things to say regarding its handling. Apparently it feels like a go-kart.
Also, a car in NYC? You smokin' crack, bruh?!

I've been looking for a Tahoe, Denali, etc. Something American and fairly cheap to maintain. $6-8k budget.
I came across a couple of Range Rovers. Nightmare gas mileage but I don't care much because I won't use it alot. I've gotten the impression they are a maintenance nightmare, is this true? I'm looking at ones around '04.
Something inside my gut tells me that if you spend $6-8K on a used RR, you're probably gonna have a bad time.
