What Is the Service Interval for a Mini Cooper?

The MINI Cooper has three types of service, with the most regular–an oil change–needing to be completed after every 10,000 miles or 12 months. The other two service types, referred to as Inspection 1 (minor service) and Inspection 2 (major service) each need to be completed approximately half as often.

The current recommendation of every 10,000 miles or 12 months for an oil change is an update going back to 2012, which was met with considerable support from MINI owners and enthusiasts at that time. The recommended scheduling for servicing a MINI is oil change, type 1, oil change, type 2, and repeat, with the car’s readout informing the owner as to when service is needed. Type 1 inspections cover basic car maintenance, while type 2 inspections pay additional attention to the wheel bearings and every aspect of the car’s breaking system.
