What an idiot, clearly the later of the two.

Man, what a bone head. He tried to be cute and ate shit.

By the way, how do we know it was new off the lot?

It's reported here that the car was registered that morning:

On the other hand, this guy (or gal) passes like a boss:

borrowed my mom's Mini Cooper S last week. it's a fun little car...excellent visibility and really short overhangs make the car really nimble and i felt like i could squeeze the thing into the tightest little spots

although coming from my powerful NA cars the supercharger lag + lag from the auto tranny kicking down was pretty disconcerting. but it's a super fun little car otherwise and definitely my choice if i lived in a city like New York or London

Thoughts?

I have been looking for a 2nd hand SUV. Don't want to spend much, its a second car mainly to move furniture and large items, to use when my main driver is being serviced, need to get 7 in a car. I don't expect to drive it more than 2000 miles in a year.

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.

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?!

Something inside my gut tells me that if you spend $6-8K on a used RR, you're probably gonna have a bad time.

You said American but then seem to be considering Range Rover.  Why not something like an 04/05 Nissan Armada?  They are roomy, reliable and pretty cheap now
