Believe it or not, the official beginning of spring is fast approaching. As the Bedford, NH area thaws out from the long winter, you may notice that the cold, snow, and road salt have taken a toll on your MINI vehicle. If this is the case, it is time to schedule a service appointment here at our MINI service center. Our team of experienced and skilled mechanics will check over all the essential functions of your new or used MINI car to make sure that it is ready for the spring. Here are a few things that we’ll take a look at during your spring checkup.

Oil and Filter Change: Regularly scheduled oil changes help maintain a healthy engine. If you go too long without an oil change, your engine will become less powerful and less fuel-efficient. Schedule an oil change at the beginning of the spring to help your engine be as powerful and efficient as possible.

Battery Check: The cold winter weather can take a toll on your car’s battery. Low temperatures force your battery to work harder, slowing down its chemicals. To avoid starting off your day with a dead battery, have our mechanics check its charge.

Tire Pressure and Tread Check: Fluctuations in temperature can cause fluctuations in tire pressure, so tires should be checked in the period between winter and spring. Also, spring is the perfect time to check your tire tread depth and get a tire rotation if necessary.

Wiper Blade Replacement: Finally, because your wipers just spent months clearing away snow and ice, it is a good time to replace your wiper blades.

Head on over to MINI of Bedford today to get your MINI vehicle in tip-top shape for the spring.
