MINI Cooper is a high-performance vehicle, also known to have some of the most attractive designs in the automobile industry. While being a fun and sporty car, it's not without its problems. This can be stressful, but luckily, the team at British Auto Specialists is here to help you with all your MINI Cooper repair needs in Calgary. Contact our auto shop today for a dependable MINI Cooper service you may need!


Whether you need to change oil, replace a battery or fix any engine issues in your MINI, we've got you covered. At British Auto Specialists, we offer reliable mechanic services in Calgary to ensure that your MINI is at its peak performance at all times.


Every vehicle shows initial signs of damage, and if you are an experienced driver, you will easily be able to spot them and get them fixed in time. Here are some common issues with MINI Coopers that might require your immediate attention:

  • Electric power steering pumps failure: Stiff steering wheel, squealing or whining noises, and slow steering response are the signs that indicate that there may be an issue with the electric power steering pumps.
  • Clutch failure and transmission problems: Usually, early clutch failure indicates heavy use. It should be fixed in time, as it can damage the transmission. Problems with the transmission may also appear when the fluid is not changed. Changing the transmission fluid after 40,000 miles will save you repair costs.
  • Water pump and thermostat leak: If your MINI has a high mileage of more than 50,000 miles, the water pump and thermostat should also be replaced to avoid costly repairs down the line. 
  • Variable valve timing (VVT): The performance of your MINI Cooper may hamper if the oil is not changed frequently enough. Frequent oiling ensures no sludge build-up and smooth working of the system.  
  • Problem with front radiator support: The radiator, fan, and condenser are all supported by the front radiator support, made out of plastic. Damaged radiator support can lead to significant damage to your car even after a minor collision.

If you notice any of these issues in your vehicle in Calgary, you might need to contact a MINI Cooper repair expert immediately. Please call us today, and we will be happy to assist you.

Here are a few common questions we often get related to MINI coopers:

  • How Much Fuel Can a MINI Cooper Hold?
    Depending on the model, year, and trim year, the tank size of most MINI Coopers ranges from 40 to 60 litres. For example, to fill a MINI 3-door, you’ll need about 44L of gas, whereas MINI R56 has a tank size of 60L
  • Can My Mini Cooper’s Rear Seats Be Folded?
    They certainly can be. Most MINI Coopers’ seats are split 50/50, so you can place one or both down at the same time. The MINI Countryman's rear seats are divided 60/40. Three independent rear seats are standard on these models. Passengers can release the backrest on each seat for a preferred comfort level or fold them down fully to load cargo or other equipment.
  • What Exactly Does It Mean to "Winterize" My Vehicle?
    Winterizing a vehicle means inspecting and adjusting its coolant protection, battery, charging system, tires, and other elements of your car to prepare it for safe winter driving. If you’d like to learn more about auto repair and maintenance tips, we invite you to visit our blog.
  • Why Is Maintenance Essential for Your Vehicle?
    Maintenance is like healthcare for any vehicle. It ensures your vehicle is always at its best and all the parts are working as intended. With the right maintenance, your vehicle can become more efficient, even if it’s getting old.
