April is National Car Care Month, and as we move from winter to spring here in Massachusetts, the changing of seasons represents a perfect opportunity to get your MINI vehicle back into top shape. During your regularly scheduled maintenance at our MINI service center, our mechanics will perform services such as oil changes, tire rotations, fluid checks, brake inspections, and more. Here is why regular car maintenance is so important.

Increases Safety

Keeping on your regular tune-ups will increase the safety of you and your family while you’re driving. It will prevent the car parts from breaking down, which can result in safety issues. If you’re diligent about getting a mechanic to check components such as brakes and headlights, you can avoid concerning safety issues.

Improves Performance

If you neglect regular maintenance, the performance of your MINI car can be hurt. Regular service can improve traction, steering, and engine performance. Your MINI car was designed to perform a certain way, and regular maintenance will help to keep it performing that way.

Increases Vehicle Longevity

Most drivers want their vehicle to last them a long time. Keeping up with regular maintenance can help your car go 100,000-plus miles and last you decades.

Lowers the Cost of Fuel

Regular maintenance also improves your vehicle’s fuel efficiency, which will mean fewer trips to the gas station, saving you time and money.

Increases the Value of Your Car

If you’re planning on selling your MINI car, keeping up with maintenance is one of the best ways of keeping its value up. Used car buyers do not want to purchase a vehicle that’s been neglected.
