Whether you just bought a new MINI car or have been driving the same loyal model around for years, it’s critical to keep your compact car running at its best. From routine maintenance to major repair, here are a few things you should keep an eye on.

Signs Your Car Needs Servicing

If a dashboard indicator lights up, it may be a sign of a major issue, or something minor such as a loose gas cap. This is why it’s important to know your car’s warning sign linguistics and what each means. If you’re ever unsure, check your vehicle’s manual, and then make an appointment in our MINI service center.

Aside from dashboard lights, your vehicle may present various signs that it requires attention:

  • Poor fuel efficiency
  • Increased stopping distance
  • Shaking steering wheel
  • Spongy brake pedal
  • Loud engine noises
  • Odors

Your MINI needs regular maintenance to ensure optimal performance and safety. Depending on your vehicle’s mileage and age, the maintenance intervals can vary drastically from your friend’s car’s maintenance schedule.
