“I am new to the Sarasota area and have a Mini Cooper convertible S. I had tried multiple places (including driving all the way up to tampa!) looking for a mechanic that I could trust and who also had decent prices. I felt very comfortable with my car in the hands of Jesse’s Garage, and was very pleased with my service. I will definitely be returning with my mini-and all future cars! Thank you Jesse!”

Frequently Asked Questions About MINIs:

How much does an oil change for a Mini Cooper cost?

MINIs tend to cost the owner $100 for a scheduled oil change. This is primarily because the MINI specialist has to move the coolant overflow reservoir out of the way and get to the actual filter housing, which can be a little tricky. Additionally, MINI recommends using their High Performance Synthetic 5W-30 Oil, which is actually made by Castrol for BMW high-performance engines, so there’s that increase as cost as well.

What is the average maintenance cost for a Mini Cooper?

According to, MINIs average around $1,000 in annual maintenance fees for their owners. This is an elevated range compared to subcompact cars in general, at $436, and sedans, which is $631. MINI owners should expect to pay around $350+ for a visit to a MINI specialist.

What is the warranty on MINI Cooper’s?

MINI has a pretty standard warranty that can cover quite a bit for a person who buys one new. Their basic offer includes 3 years or 36,000 miles for the vehicle and the powertrain. You can see a comprehensive list online at MINI USA here.
