MINI cars are known for their nimble handling and reliability, but what about purchasing a pre-owned MINI car in Orlando, FL? Is this a smart move, and do you get the same level of reliability?

Lower-mileage MINI vehicles are, in fact, just as dependable as their new counterparts. 

Certified Pre-Owned MINI Cars

Most pre-owned car buyers are on the fence about pre-owned vehicles with high mileage. After all, doesn’t high mileage increase a vehicle’s risk of having engine-, transmission-, or suspension-related trouble? If this is on your mind, then we recommend checking out our Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) MINI inventory.  

For a pre-owned MINI to qualify as a CPO, it cannot have more than 60,000 miles or be more than five years old. These models also undergo a rigorous multi-point inspection from a certified MINI technician. In addition, all components that are replaced during the reconditioning process are replaced with OEM parts. 

In this respect, lower-mileage MINI cars that are under our CPO program are just as good (if not better) than non-CPO cars. We’re so confident that every purchase of a CPO vehicle is backed by a limited warranty and 24/7 roadside assistance. 

How to Extend Your Pre-Owned MINI’s Life 

Regardless of whether your MINI car is CPO or not, you should take proactive measures to keep it in good operating health. Here are some tips you can use when caring for your model:

  • Check all fluid levels, including the oil, transmission fluid, and coolant at least once per month.
  • Rotate your tires every 6,000 miles.
  • Avoid careless driving habits like sudden braking, rapid acceleration, and sharp cornering.
