MINI Coopers have a long history of service to many European owners, and I’m sure you remember the little-wheeled Coopers of the 1960s. Now known for their many unique paint schemes, they were once produced by an English company, who later sold the rights for production to BMW.
While they still retain much of their characteristic size and charm, the powertrains are now modern BMW powerplants and transmissions. As such, due to our extensive knowledge of BMWs, we can also extend our skill and ability to the service and repair of your beloved MINI.
Common Mini Faults:
Mini Coopers are small, and fun to drive – so in a perfect world, they would be problem free. Unfortunately, this is not the case – but lucky for all proud Mini drivers, Parrotta’s Auto Service is always here to save the day with professional maintenance and friendly service. Call to schedule an appointment at (413) 786-0959 today if you are experiencing any of the following listed issues.
- Clutch Failure: The clutch can begin to fail early if you are an aggressive driver
- Damaged Front Radiator: The front radiator support sustains the weight of the radiator, fan, and condenser – but it is made of plastic, so it doesn’t take much damage to hurt something major.
- Failed Electric Power Steering Pumps: In your favorite Mini, your power steering pump can be prone to failure. It is always a promising idea to allow Parrotta’s Auto Service to check and preform preventative maintenance where necessary.
- Performance Issues due to VVT: A lack of regular maintenance such as oil changes can cause variable valve timing, which is when sludge builds up within your engine and blocks necessary passages for a clean, properly running engine.
- Rattling Timing Chains: If you hear rattling under the hood, it’s never a good sign. Typically, with a Mini, this is a timing chain, which can be heard louder while the car is idling.
- Transmission Issues: The best way to prevent issues with your Mini’s transmission is to schedule preventative maintenance with Parrotta’s Auto Service, such as your oil changes every 30,000-40,000 miles.
- Water Pump and Thermostat Housing Leak: Typically, with Mini Coopers, after 50,000 miles the water pump and thermostat begin having issues. Parrotta’s Auto Service will gladly provide all of your maintenance needs.

Personal driving preferences
Being aware of your personal driving style can help you adjust for better vehicle performance. For example, if you’re an “aggressive” driver who rapidly accelerates, brakes hard or often, and often speeds your brakes may wear more quickly and your fuel-efficiency might suffer. If you drive more gently by driving the speed limit, accelerating at a slower pace, etc. you’ll experience better fuel efficiency and less wear on components overall. If you often drive on bumpy dirt or rough roads your suspension might be more likely to wear as compared to smooth roads. Regular maintenance and inspection of components with heavy wear will help extend the life of your vehicle.
MINI Cooper Repair Specialists
Parrotta’s Auto Service has factory access to MINI Cooper parts to make sure that we are only using OE level parts to service your MINI Cooper.

Because of the high level of technicians that we have and the quality of the parts we use, we back up all of our MINI Cooper repairs with a 2 year/ 24,000 mile warranty; two times longer than the MINI Cooper Dealer!
