Does Your 2019 Mini Cooper Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2019 Mini Cooper, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Cooper jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2019 Mini Cooper in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Mini Cooper suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Mini Cooper Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2019 Mini Cooper suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mini up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Cooper’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mini Cooper shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2019 Mini Cooper suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2019 Cooper Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mini's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mini Cooper? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Mini intended.
  • When does Mini Cooper power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Cooper’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Mini's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • Why does my Mini Cooper bounce so much? Damaged struts or shocks can't dampen road bumps properly, causing your vehicle to feel like a trampoline after each dip or bump.
  • Why does my Cooper front end dip forward when I brake? As you brake, the forward momentum of your Cooper combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • How can I tell if the shocks on my Mini Cooper are bad? Worn Cooper shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Cooper might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Cooper shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
