Purchasing a new vehicle is an exciting time but can also be nerve-racking. You've saved up, taken the time to research, and gone through the buying process. In the end, it was all worth it, but one thing to keep in mind is making sure your MINI performs as best as it can. The best way to keep your MINI running in top form is to maintain it properly.

How to Care for Your MINI Cooper

MINI's are quirky subcompact sports cars that deliver fantastic performance and thrills. However, they do require some special maintenance every now, and then this helps to avoid any costly repairs in the future. Regular maintenance is essential for any vehicle, and this rule also applies to a MINI; let's keep your MINI zipping around without any issues. Please schedule a service appointment and allow our trained technicians to inspect your MINI.

The following components require your attention on a regular basis:


Your engine is one of the most critical parts of your MINI, and it is the source of power that pushes you back in your seat. Our service centre is happy to help you perform, and factory recommend services like oil change, engine air filter, coolant flush/inspection, spark plugs, and more. Some of these items require inspection and/or replacement at 3 years and 60,000 km. The most frequent service is an oil change which is usually performed starting at 7,000 km depending on the model. The turbocharged MINI's may require it at a quicker interval because they tend to create more heat.


A component that is usually overlooked is the transmission. Transmissions also have a unique maintenance schedule, and they should be tended to. The transmission is vital in delivering the performance you have become accustomed to.

Steering System

We all love taking a corner a bit faster than the posted speed limit, and it's so much more exciting in a MINI. The MINI offers a short wheelbase which allows it to carve upturns with little effort. Not only does the steering system keep a smile on your face, but it also helps keep you safe and in control during inclement weather conditions. Make sure to have your MINIs steering system inspected and maintained so you could enjoy more fun ahead without any interruptions.


A lot of drivers focus on going fast; however, coming to a stop is far more critical. That's why keeping an eye on your braking system is extremely important to the enjoyment and safety of yourself and other individuals on the road. Brake pads do indeed have a change interval, but this can vary depending on your driving habits. Not only do your brakes need inspections and possible replacement, but investigating your brake fluid is vital. Your brake fluid should be replaced at a specific interval. Contact our service department to find out more.


Your tires are the only component on your vehicle that comes in contact with the road below. Your tires perform an essential job of keeping you in control of your vehicle and others safe. It is recommended that you inspect your tires from time to time, making sure there are no imperfections. Additionally, having your tires rotated help to keep them usable longer and avoid uneven tread wear. Car servicing and car maintenance are essential to the functionality of your MINI but don't worry; we are here to help.
