Brake Service and Repairs

MINI Brake Service at Cincinnati MINI

The MINI certified technicians at Cincinnati MINI are here to help you with all your brake service and maintenance needs. From how often to get your brakes inspected to when it’s time to replace your brakes, we’re here to help you gain clarity on the importance of regular brake maintenance. Routine brake maintenance is vital to ensure you have the appropriate and reliable stopping power you need most. Not only can worn brake pads affect your safety but they can also affect your MINI’s overall performance and cause easily preventable damage.

The timeline for your brake pads to be replaced can vary depending on your driving habits and lifestyle. It is recommended to have your brake pads replaced at least every 50,000 miles. Hard braking and road debris can cause your MINI’s brakes to wear out prematurely. Common warning signs that your brake pads are nearly all worn out are squeaking, less responsive braking, and sliding when braking. Brake fluid replacement and inspections are needed more frequently on the other hand to ensure optimal performance and safety. MINI’s recommended brake maintenance schedule includes:

  • Brake inspection every 6 months
  • Brake fluid replacement every 2 years
  • Brake pads replaced starting around 23,000 miles (depending on driving conditions)

Every time you bring your MINI in for any service, we’ll perform a brake inspection to ensure your MINI is up to the highest standards in safety and performance. During your MINI’s brake inspection, we’ll check your brake pads and rotors to look for any issues or damage. After that we’ll flush your brake fluid to ensure it’s operating correctly without blockage or damage, bleeding your brake lines to remove any sediment, or to see if there’s any damage. If necessary, we’ll replace or update any older worn brake parts with only MINI Original Parts.
