We have an older model Mini that we recently purchased for a good
price. It seems the dealer knew it may be difficult for us to find
reasonably priced maintenance which could have motivated the low sales
We took it back to the dealer for an oil change and checkup, at 15k
additional miles since we bought it.
Many maintenance items were suggested, but three appear important:
contaminated brake fluid needs replacing, failing coolant needs system
flush, air filter/cleaner needs cleaning or replacing.
Almost $1,000 for these three services!
I'm a retiree, and have the time and desire to do these services, as
well as DIY skills in car maintenance accumulated since the 60s.
Are there any Mini Cooper DIY maintenance help sites, manuals, groups
I can get assistance from?
