If you’re following the MINI Cooper maintenance schedule, you’ll pay a visit to our Golden Valley service center once every 5,000 miles or so, or roughly twice per year. Although there’s no harm in coming in more often, your own unique MINI Cooper service schedule and costs will be precisely determined by your Condition Based Service (CBS) system. This technology automatically assesses your oil life–among other factors–and displays a warning on your dashboard whenever it’s time to schedule service.
When you purchase a new MINI Cooper, you enjoy complimentary standard maintenance for up to three years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. That’s right: your first MINI service appointment will be on the house. Here’s what’s covered:

You’ll also want to ensure that each of the following components or fluids is completely replaced or flushed at the proper time:
With a new vehicle, you’ll enjoy complimentary maintenance for the first three years (or 36,000 miles) of ownership. The only MINI Cooper service costs you’ll have to worry about are those that fall outside of your recommended maintenance schedule. Following this initial period, you can expect to spend between $150 and $190 on MINI Cooper oil service and the associated tasks.
