MINI Maintenance at Foreign Autohaus of El Dorado Hills

The MINI Maintenance System

The MINI maintenance system helps maintain your vehicle's road safety and operational safety. 

Please bear in mind that regular maintenance is not only necessary for the safety of your vehicle, but also plays a significant role in maintaining the resale value of the vehicle.

Service Interval Display

While conventional systems specify maintenance according to fixed distances driven, the MINI Maintenance System takes account of the operating conditions of the vehicle, for distances can be driven in many different ways:  60,000 miles short distance operation can not be equated with 60,000 miles long distance operation from a maintenance standpoint. 

The condition-based MINI Maintenance System includes the Engine Oil Sevice and Inspections I and II. 

Determining the maintenance intervals according to the actual use of the vehicle covers every kind of operating situation.  People who drive very little, i.e. much less than 6,000 miles per year, should have the engine oil changed at least every 2 years since oil deteriorates over time regardless of use.

The MINI service interval consists of three service groups:

Additionally, there are services that are time based (excluded from the main service groups):

  • Brake fluid flush and replacement, annually
  • Engine coolant flush and replacement, annually
  • Timing belt replacement (M20 motor), every 4 years or 50,000 miles whichever occurs first
