The MINI was designed in the 1950s by British Motor Corporation (BMC) as a solution for a more fuel-efficient vehicle. It made its U.S. debut in 1960 when approximately 10,000 MINIs were exported to America. Over the years, the structure of the vehicle has improved to accommodate more seating and modern technology, while still maintaining its compact, convenient appeal.
When customizing your MINI, the first thought might not typically go to when it will break down. However, due to vehicle aging, repair is inevitable with any vehicle, no matter how robust the manufacturing. A new MINI warranty is valid for 4-years or 50,000 miles for bumper-to-bumper coverage. If purchased used from a third party, the MINI certified pre-owned warranty protects the vehicle for up to 6 years or 100,000 miles. But what happens when your original warranty expires?
Many times major repairs occur beyond the time when a manufacturer warranty is still valid. To prevent lapse in coverage, a vehicle service contract (f/k/a an extended warranty) can keep the future cost and functioning of your car protected. No one wants to become stranded with no way to pay when their vehicle needs taken to the shop.
Average Repair Costs for Mini Vehicles
Crucial components of your vehicle may begin to wear as years go on, which requires fixing, or in some cases, full replacement. Does your budget accommodate for these unexpected costs? When you invest in extended vehicle coverage, you can ensure main parts of your car are covered, if they malfunction, without paying out of pocket.
A few hundred dollars can definitely throw a wrench in maintaining a monthly budget. Don’t worry about delaying car repairs because the expense is too high. A vehicle service contract (f/k/a an extended warranty) is designed to help you with surprise costs.
|Clutch replacement||$1,300 to $2,867|
