Top Winter Service Tasks
Routine car service is always important, but especially in the chilly winter months. Here are a few of the service tasks you’ll want to schedule for your MINI vehicle to keep it running smoothly:
- Oil changes: The oil in your car doesn’t just help to keep your engine cool and well-lubricated. It also collects dirt and debris that gets kicked up from the road when you drive. Winter weather brings even more road debris, so it can be helpful to start the season fresh.
- Battery tests: Car batteries typically last three to five years, but below-freezing temperatures can reduce battery capacity by up to 50-percent. Get your battery inspected before the cold weather hits so you’ll have time to replace it if needed.
- Hose and belt inspections: We rely on our hoses and belts to make our vehicles work right. Cold weather can make rubber hoses and belts vulnerable to cracking, which is why it helps to have them inspected before winter arrives.
- Tire changes: Before winter arrives, it’s a good idea to swap out your tires for winter tires. Not only are they great for driving in ice and snow, but they’re also designed to withstand colder temperatures. With winter tires, you’ll have more driver control on every ride.
