One great benefit of driving a MINI Cooper is its ability to gauge your driving and keep you on top of the maintenance you’ll need to have performed on your vehicle. By using sensors, your MINI vehicle is able to determine when you’re due for certain services.
It’s able to do this by factoring in your vehicle’s performance, the conditions of your daily drive, and the time since you’ve had that particular component serviced previously.
With this technology, your MINI Cooper can let you know exactly when you should have your oil and oil filter changed. It’ll also keep you aware of the condition of your braking system and when it’s time to have the brake fluid replaced or brake pads checked.
At various oil changes, there will also be other parts you should have replaced. Every second engine oil service, you should have the microfilter and remote control key battery replaced.
The intake air cleaner will need to be replaced every fourth oil change. This will approximately take place once you drive another 40,000 miles. Every sixth oil change, or around 60,000 miles, you’ll want to have the spark plugs replaced.
Later on, you’ll also have to replace the oxygen sensors in your MINI Cooper. These sensors are able to monitor your emissions and keep your engine running at its most efficient. These will need to be replaced anywhere from 120,000 to 150,000 miles.
To help ensure that your MINI Cooper is in top shape, you can perform regular checks yourself. This includes making sure fluid levels are good—like your washer fluid, brake fluid, coolant, and engine oil.
You also will want to make sure you’re frequently checking your tires. You’ll want to see if they have enough tread on them and are properly inflated. A good practice is to do these checks while you’re refueling.
