Preparing Your MINI Cooper for Winter

The MINI Cooper is the perfect vehicle for year-round driving. However, when you live in an area with extremely cold winters, it is essential to take precautionary measures to ensure your vehicle will last through the season. Here are a few tips on how to winterize your MINI Cooper and get it ready for winter.

Change the Oil

Colder temperatures can cause motor oil to thicken, making it less effective at lubricating your engine. Have your oil changed before the cold weather arrives. This will also help remove any build-up of dirt, dust, and other particles that can collect in your motor oil over time. To ensure maximum protection and performance, use a premium synthetic motor oil when changing your oil.

Check Tire Pressure and Tread Depth

The cold weather can cause your tires to lose pressure, so it's important to check the tire pressure of your MINI Cooper before winter sets in. You should also check the tread depth of your tires to ensure they are in good condition. Your best bet is to replace your tires with winter-specific models designed to provide extra traction in cold weather and snowy conditions.

Inspect All Components and Top Up Fluids

The vehicle's components should all be inspected before winter, from the brakes and the battery to the exterior lights and wiper blades. Ensure all fluids, including coolant, power steering fluid, and brake fluid, are topped off and in good condition before you start driving in the cold. It is best to use fluids that are rated for colder weather, such as freeze-proof washer fluid. Stop by our Service Centre, and we will provide you with a thorough inspection and help you top up all the fluids.
