MINI Car Warranty Quote

Produced by the British Motor Corporation, MINI started life as a range of small cars; it was only when BMW AG bought the marque in 1994 that it became a make in its own right. Thanks to its rich blend of style and affordability, MINI's continue to be one of the most sought-after variants of car in the UK. 

Fun-loving and retro, the iconic MINI is available in a range of body types: from hatchbacks to SUVs; coupes to convertibles, there’s a MINI out there for everyone. This means it’s up to you what MINI warranty you get for your specific model. No matter the shape or size of your MINI, you can relax knowing that you’re properly covered with MotorEasy.

MINI reliability: common MINI repairs

The MotorEasy Reliability Index measures the dependability of a car, as an average of the frequency and cost of repairs for over 1,200 models. It reveals some of the hidden costs of ownership, as well as the likelihood of something going wrong. 

Each model is given a reliability score ranging from -100 (red), for a high frequency and/or high cost of repair, through to +100 (green), where there is a low frequency and cost of repair. 

The index also includes model-specific data on:

  • The typical repairs needed for each model, including the percentage of claims for engine, gearbox, electrical system, suspension, braking system and fuel system repairs
  • Common repairs you would be covered for with a MINI warranty
  • The average cost for each of the above types of repairs

MINI Warranty FAQs

How long does a MINI warranty last?

A MINI extended warranty lasts for 12 months, or you can take an ongoing monthly policy. In both instances your car will need to have done less than 100,000 miles. Unless you opt for the cheapest and least comprehensive cover. By contrast, a MotorEasy MINI extended warranty lasts for up to 3 years - or you can also choose an ongoing monthly policy.

 

How much warranty do you get on a MINI?

A MINI warranty is provided at the time you purchase the vehicle. In the UK that covers 3 years and unlimited mileage. To maintain that cover you need to follow the manufacturer servicing guidelines. If you want to extend your MINI warranty you can either buy an annual policy for 12 months or an ongoing monthly policy. MINI have three levels of warranty cover and only the cheapest covers vehicles over 100,000 miles.

 

What’s covered in a MINI warranty?

It depends which level of cover you choose to pay for with MINI. They have three levels of cover as laid out below:

  • Comprehensive - which covers the majority of mechanical & electrical parts of your MINI & is the only one to include wear & tear cover
  • Named Component - which covers a smaller selection of parts & no wear & tear
  • Driveline - only covers the engine, transmission & drive train & no wear & tear

You can take Comprehensive or Named Component if your car has covered less than 100,000 miles. Driveline will cover any MINI that has done over 100,000 miles. You can also choose one of 3 excess amounts to lower the cost of your warranty £0, £100 or £250.

A MotorEasy MINI extended warranty covers all the same things but with the addition of:

  • Wear & Tear cover (which you only get with comprehensive cover at MINI)
  • Overheating failures
  • Air conditioning issues

 

How much is a MINI warranty?

Firstly, that depends entirely on which level of cover you choose: Comprehensive, Named Component, or Driveline. And which policy excess you choose. We like to keep things easy so - we’ve done the research for you!

Our most recent research suggests that a 3 year old MINI Cooper SD OR MINI Convertible Cooper S Would cost £932 (based on comprehensive cover with £0 excess). The same level of cover with £0 excess from MotorEasy would cost almost HALF at £478.

In the event of a claim, you also won’t have to pay the £250 excess fee as detailed in MINI’s low cost warranty option. In contrast, a MotorEasy warranty gives you the flexibility to choose a modest repair contribution of £0, £25 or £50, as a way to lower the cost of your premium.

All things considered, that means a MotorEasy warranty compared to a MINI extended warranty is:

  • Less expensive
  • Offers more cover, notably for wear and tear (outside of comprehensive cover)
  • Won’t hit you with an expensive excess fee
  • Gives you more flexibility to choose a modest repair contribution to lower your premium cost
  • Includes a free vehicle health check

What MINI warranties are available on used cars?

MINI offer 3 levels of cover on used car warranties:
1. Comprehensive 12 month or ongoing monthly cover up to 100,000 miles
2. Named Component 12 month or ongoing monthly cover up to 100,000 miles
3. Driveline - 12 month or ongoing monthly cover cars can go over 100,000 miles

  • A free digital logbook in your MotorEasy account with useful date reminders (such as service and MOT dates) and access to special MotorEasy discounts
