With cheeky personality and major British charm, the MINI is a symbol of fun and spontaneity. Since it became a cultural icon in 1960s England, its allure has taken hold of car aficionados everywhere. But MINIs aren’t all about looks. Their compact size and classic style are complemented by BMW German engineering, optimizing fuel efficiency and economy. In fact, the MINI Cooper was voted by 130 international automotive journalists as the European Car of the Century in 1999.
The MINI Cooper was designed to be efficient in every way possible. We know because we keep ourselves up-to-date with the latest changes in today’s automotive technology by undergoing constant training. A transversely mounted engine and wheels pushed out to the corners increase stability and handling, while lightweight construction and aerodynamic technology reduce fuel consumption. With the right care and attention, your MINI Cooper will last you a long time. If you need repairs, Certified Auto Repair can help keep it that way.
At Certified Auto Repair, we know MINI vehicles just as well as the MINI dealerships. Our technicians stay up-to-date on the latest MINI technology and features to ensure we can take care of your vehicle whether you need an oil change or engine replacement. If you live in the San Luis Obispo area, we hope you’ll count on us to keep your MINI performing at its best.
If any warning lights display on your MINI vehicle, you should head to an auto repair shop as soon as possible (at a minimum within the next 600 miles). Generally, your motor oil and filter must be changed at least once a year, and this may be the culprit. However, if you’re driving in optimal conditions, your vehicle might not indicate the need for vehicle service for more than a year. At Certified Auto Repair, our trained technicians can accurately determine when your MINI needs maintenance, exactly when and not before or after it’s necessary.
The brake pads on your MINI vehicle are equipped with wear indicators that will produce a squealing noise when the brakes are almost worn out. The noise will start when there is about 2 mm of brake pad friction remaining, which is when brake pads need to be replaced. If you are hearing this noise, your brake pads should be replaced as soon as possible. (The noise may be present even when you’re not applying the brake pedal.) At Certified Auto Repair, we can help with all your MINI service needs.
