Why is routine maintenance important?

MINI's recommended maintenance schedule is important because it keeps your car safe and in excellent working order

You don't want to neglect your MINI's service. That could do some serious, expensive damage. Foregoing oil changes can cost you the engine. And our expert technicians need to keep an eye on your MINI's systems (like its brakes) to ensure you're driving in a safe, reliable car.

If you lease, you don't want to be on the hook for any damage resulting from a failure to maintain the vehicle. And if you've purchased, keeping up with maintenance can keep your MINI in like-new condition, so you can enjoy it for many years and get a good price when you're ready to sell it.

How often do I need to change the oil on my MINI?

Newer model year MINIs will tell you when they need oil! MINI vehicles built in the past few years should get an oil change at least once every 10,000 miles. The old 3,000-mile rule is overkill on today's engines and oils. You can find information on oil and oil changes in your MINI owner's manual. Please be in touch with us if you have questions regarding your specific vehicle, driving habits, or service schedule.

Why should I service my MINI with a dealer?

Well, for the first few years of a new MINI's life- because it's free! But regardless of mileage or model year, one of the biggest advantages of servicing your MINI with a dealership is the expertise. We have years and years of experience working with these vehicles. We receive training directly from MINI. We know every facet of every model.

Our experience makes it easier for us to work smoothly and efficiently. We have the MINI-specific skills and tools to get every job done correctly the first time so you can get back on the road in no time.
