It’s never a convenient time to need service or repairs for your MINI vehicle, especially true if you face a major bill. However, keeping your vehicle in great shape doesn’t have to be a headache. Here are some tips from our MINI Service Center in Peabody, MA, for extending the life of your MINI Cooper Car.

Fluids and Filters

This may seem like a minor issue, but if neglected, low fluids and dirty filters can to a major problem if you don’t keep your fluids full and your filters clean. If you miss your regular oil change schedule, contaminants can build up in your engine. As the oil gets dirtier, your oil filter becomes congested, and contaminants can spread through the engine and cause serious damage. Schedule an oil change every six months or 4,000-6,000 miles to keep your MINI vehicle running smoothly.

Tire and Brake Care

The longer you drive your used MINI, the more wear and tear you put on your tires and brakes. Balding tires or worn-down brake pads greatly increase your risk of an accident. Let our MINI service professionals check your pads, rotors, shoes, and fluids, and we will replace anything that’s worn out.

You should also schedule tire rotation and balancing service to prevent your tires from wearing unevenly,

which can lead to an inconvenient roadside emergency. Tires in poor condition can also damage other parts of your suspension and steering.

Routine Maintenance

The best thing drivers can do to extend the life of their vehicle is to just get in the habit of taking bring it in for regular maintenance at our MINI service center. That includes everything from oil changes to tire rotation and beyond. Routine maintenance can keep you safe on the road as you rack up more miles.
