Mini Servicing in Oldham, Bury Manchester
No other brand captures the essence of luxury and sportiness in such a compact package like Mini does. Even the name itself, Mini, symbolizes something special and unique, with a long automotive history and plenty of heritage. Although current Minis are far larger than the original Mini which made its debut in 1959, at their core, they carry the same principles and values. The Mini lineup has grown exponentially over the last couple of decades, but that just means you can find a Mini to suit every kind of need!
The Mini Hatch is what the original Mini would have looked like had it been produced today. It’s bigger and more practical than ever, but it’s still class-leading in terms of performance and driver experience. You can have it as a three-door or a five-door hatch, but if you prefer open-top motoring, it also comes as a convertible or a roadster.
A few years ago Mini introduced the Clubman and the Countryman in response to the ever-growing SUV market, showing you can have both practicality and luxury without sacrificing performance or good looks. They’re both instantly recognizable as a Mini, despite the fact they’re much larger than the Mini Hatch and sit upmarket.
A lot of people are worried about Mini reliability, but the truth of the matter is that a modern day Mini is probably one of the most reliable cars on the market. If you service them regularly and take care of them, they’ll serve you loyally for years on end. It’s no secret that BMW bought Mini back in early 2000, and the brand has seen nothing but success over the last two decades.
BMW makes some of the best driver’s cars on the market, and Mini is no different. If BMW dominate the rear-wheel drive market, then Mini is king when it comes to front-wheel drive. From the Cooper S all the way to the lunatic that is the John Cooper Works, you can have your Mini as sedated or as insane as you want.
When it comes to servicing, changing the oil and all associated filters and spark plugs regularly will usually give you relatively trouble-free motoring. Common issues largely depend on the specific Mini model in question, but as a general rule, they don’t have that many common faults. The Mini Cooper can experience power steering pump failures as well as water pump leaks, but both can be fixed quite easily. A loose timing chain isn’t common but it’s easily diagnosed by the noise and the vibrations it gives off.
Both the Countryman and the Clubman can suffer from the same issues since they mostly carry the same engines, meaning a lot of the repairs are identical or similar across the lineup. That being said, they do carry different suspension components as well as interiors, so you still need to take your Mini to a specialist to get it serviced.
