What is the MINI Maintenance Schedule?

There are lots of great reasons for San Francisco and Oakland drivers to get behind the wheel of a new MINI when it’s time to upgrade their driving experience in the Bay Area. Chief among them is the MINI Maintenance Program! One of the most comprehensive scheduled maintenance programs in its class, the MINI Maintenance Program comes standard on every new MINI vehicle. What’s included in the MINI Maintenance Program, and how does the MINI maintenance schedule break down into regular intervals? East Bay MINI provides the details you need, below.

What Does the MINI Maintenance Program Cover?

MINI Car Maintenance: 9,000 Miles / 9 Months

Each time you hit the 9,000-mile or 9-month interval, your MINI maintenance will be identical to the 3,000-mile services, including all of the same checks and/or changes.
