Mini Cooper Repair Service in Bristol, TN
Way back in 1959, the Mini really broke ground in the automotive world. Its engine was mounted sideways and coupled to a front-wheel-drive drivetrain, meaning there was no driveshaft hump through the passenger compartment and 80 percent of the floor could be devoted to passenger comfort and luggage area. Minis were tiny, fun to drive, economical and surprisingly roomy, and they influenced generations of automotive design from that point on.
The original Mini had several incarnations, including a wagon, a van, a sedan and even a Jeep-type vehicle. Alas, the last British-built Mini rolled off the line back in 2000, but the Mini name lives on as Mini-type cars are now built by BMW.
If you drive a Mini, you don’t want to take it just anywhere for service. At Free Service Tire Company in Bristol, TN, we offer full factory-authorized service for Mini models, including:
- Oil changes
- Engine diagnostics
- Brake repair
- A/C service
- Routine maintenance
Brand-specific auto repair and maintenance just keeps getting more and more sophisticated with every passing year, and at Free Service Tire Company our factory-authorized Mini repair is done using only Mini-certified tools and diagnostic equipment.
For Mini owners whose cars are turbocharger-equipped, remember that turbo engines really depend on clean motor oil to stay reliable and trouble free. Consult your owner’s manual – chances are your vehicle needs oil changes at a more frequent interval. It’s also recommended to drive “easy” for a few miles before reaching your destination; this lets the turbo operating temperature cool off a bit, and it’s also a good idea to idle for a minute or two before shutting the engine off to keep oil circulating as the temperature comes down.
If you drive a Mini, you’re already an unofficial member of a fairly exclusive club. Minis aren’t more finicky than other vehicles, but they do need the right maintenance and repair work. At Free Service Tire Company in Bristol, TN, Mini repair is just one of the brand-specific repair and maintenance services we offer. Next time your Mini needs a little maintenance, give us a call and let us help!
