MINI Oil and Filter Change
Bringing your MINI to AutoHaus of Boulder means you will always get a full and comprehensive oil service. More than your average oil change at a quick lube facility, AutoHaus of Boulder provides both conventional oil and synthetic oil dependent on your MINI’s engine. Turbocharged engines require synthetic oil to preserve the life of your car as the engine is designed to run with synthetic motor oil. In addition to oil and filter changes, AutoHaus of Boulder will perform a full inspection of your MINI including topping off tire air pressure to spec and all fluids with factory grade fluids. Our MINI inspections don’t end there as we perform the appropriate factory maintenance check including lubing door hinges, cleaning sunroofs and cowl drains. Most importantly, we scan all fault memory and will always reset the ever-annoying factory service reminder. We pride ourselves on our work and want you to drive away feeling confident and safe.

MINI Driveability Problems

We drive MINI’s every day and understand how they should run and feel on the road.

From check engine lights to uncommon engine noise, AutoHaus of Boulder has seen or heard it before and can easily fix the problem. Surprisingly, you can be experiencing drivability problems without the check engine illuminated. That is why you can always bring your MINI to AutoHaus of Boulder, and we will check your MINI, giving you an honest evaluation of the current “state of tune” of your MINI.
MINI Brake Repair
We recommend that you get your brakes checked at least once a year or especially before going on a long road trip. If you hear any weird or unusual noises when you hit the brake pedal, it’s time for a check-up. We provide this check “free of charge”. Depending on how you drive your MINI, we recommend bringing your MINI into AutoHaus of Boulder every 30,000 to 60,000 miles to get your MINI’s breaks inspected. AutoHaus of Boulder offers all original equipment, OE and aftermarket options to repair your MINI’s breaks. Recommended by almost all manufacturers including MINI to have a break fluid flush performed every two years. Over time, brake fluid collects moisture that lowers the boiling temperature, which is critical for your system to provide the needed brake pressure to stop your vehicle.
MINI Used Car Evaluations
We provide used car evaluations for customers looking to buy a used car. It is important to have a vehicle checked before you buy it, so you do not get a vehicle that as unknown lingering issues. We perform a comprehensive inspection of the vehicle to give you as much information as possible so you can make an educated decision on the car you would like to buy. We look at every component possible, scan all electrical systems and give you our best opinion on the current condition of the vehicle. Remember, the “Pre-purchase inspection is always cheaper than the post-purchase inspection.”
MINI Alternators, Batteries and Starters
If you MINI isn’t starting or charging, you will not be driving it. The battery provides the power to the starter and electronics when you turn the key to start your MINI. The starter, once provided with power, is what turns your engine over to get it to start-up and run. Alternators provide the power to the vehicle and keeps the battery charged once the engine is running. These systems should be checked yearly, especially in Colorado where we get extreme temperature changes. We provide free inspection for your starting and charging system so you can have the peace of mind that your MINI will start-up every time especially in the frigid winter temperatures.
