Benefits of Getting Consistent Mechanical Check-Ups

Improved Reliability

If you don’t take good care of your car today, it won’t be there for you in the future.

While this means oil changes and tire rotations, it also entails having routine check-ups performed by our expert vehicle service center at Milito’s Auto Repair in Chicago.

Higher Resale Value

If you’re looking to sell your Mini Cooper at some point in the future, you’ll want to keep up on routine service and maintenance.

This will help to ensure that it continues to run in optimal condition. Selling your vehicle will not only be easier down the road, but much more profitable!

Better Fuel Economy

First, make sure your tire pressure is set to the right levels. This prevents your car from expending unnecessary energy and fuel while moving.

If your air filter is clogged or your fuel lines are leaking, your vehicle’s fuel economy can also be negatively affected by up to 20%.

Interesting Facts, Figures and Resources for Mini Cooper Owners in Chicago

How Mini Cooper Has Stood The Test Of Time

Why People Love Their Mini Vehicles

Even though they’ve been around for decades overseas, Mini Coopers weren’t on too many people’s radar in the US until relatively recently.  That all changed in 2003 thanks to an exciting car chase scene in the movie The Italian Job, where we learned how awesome it would be to own a car that can climb stairs!

Why are Mini Coopers So Popular?

Mini Coopers quickly increased in popularity after the movie came out, but it was their quickness, reliability, interesting look and ride comfort that provides a unique experience not often found in other compact makes and models. Those features have driven Mini owners to remain loyal to their beloved little cars for years.

A used Mini Cooper is an attractive option to buying new, with new models selling for ever-increasing prices.

If you are in the market for a pre-owned Mini Cooper vehicle, here are five things that you should do:

  1. Do your Research: There are many information resources on the web that are independent and unbiased, and new ones are popping up all the time.  A quick Google or Youtube search will uncover much useful content to aid you.
  2. Take a Long Test Drive: Drive the car in as many different conditions as you reasonably can.  Take it out on the highway, then through the city to test acceleration, braking and ride comfort.  This is going to be your ride for the next few years – so take your time with it!
  3. Get a Used Car Inspection: A reputable technician that specializes in German import inspections can identify potential problems and pitfalls with the used vehicle that you are considering. When you take it for a test drive, come through Milito’s for a comprehensive used car inspection.
  4. Consider a Certified Pre-Owned: The certification provides a long-term warranty which is only offered after a rigorous 100+ point test fully resolving any visual or technical flaws. Benefits and terms vary, but many CPO warranties cover the entire powertrain and include 24-hour roadside assistance.
  5. Ensure Proper Paperwork: Go over the previous car purchase invoice, loan history (if applicable), tax receipt, Registration Certificate, etc. before getting the insurance transferred to your name.

Future Innovations for Mini Coopers

The smart folks at Mini Cooper (owned by BMW) knows the auto industry is changing rapidly. To keep up they are investing more than ever before in research and development.

They’ve focused their development on electric cars, and stylistic updates that will set it apart from not only previous generations of Minis, but from other cars on the road as well.

And in the future, you can expect to see them continue to focus on reliability, as well as technological advancements by working hard to make the future a reality now.

The History of Mini Cooper

The Mini was originally developed in the late 1950’s in response to the successful launch of the Fiat 500 compact car, as the need for fuel efficient vehicles became necessary in the UK after the 1956 Suez Crisis resulted in a fuel shortage.

The Mini Cooper was produced by the English company British Motor Corporation until 2000, and is an icon of 1960’s popular British Culture.  The car was so popular that the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century behind only the Ford Model T.

Minis have a well-earned reputation for being both cool and cute, simple and sturdy. Staying true to their roots they have maintained a style of affordability, durability and comfort that appeals to a wide range of customers.

Competitors over the years have tried but none have managed to replicate the inimitable design and appeal of the Mini, as this amazing compact car has withstood the test of time for over half a century.
