Mini Cooper: European Car Repair Service

Diagnostics, Service and Repair Center in Houston

Mini Cooper Transmission Repair

A Fine Legacy

The Mini Cooper has had an illustrious history, especially in the United States. The British Motor Corporation (BMC) exported somewhere around 10,000 Minis to the United States between 1960-67. Following stricter Federal automobile regulation, the BMC discontinued its American sales.

Following the Mini marque’s acquisition in 1994 by BMW, the Bavarian carmaker secured Mini’s prospects in America. Over the span of ~15 years, it secured a foothold much stronger than ever before. In 2012, the United States was Mini’s largest national market, with 66,123 units sold; beating even Britain’s 50,367 units.

Minis Today

Even today, the Mini’s form factor never fails to snatch everyone’s attention nearby. Minis driven in Houston’s streets continue to invoke a plethora of emotions within the beholder. Speed, dexterity, customization and unique look, all thrown together to form the perfect package: the Mini Cooper.
However, today’s Mini’s aren’t flawless. A common problem is that they suffer from transmission issues. And owners will know that Mini Cooper CVT transmission repairs are expensive. And in Houston, TX, one of America’s largest cities with massive highways, Mini Cooper automatic transmission repairs can cost a fortune.
Another thing that’s common to the Houston area is, unfortunately, car accidents. With our city being the fourth most populous city in the United States, car accidents happen all the time. And so Mini Cooper collision repair (AKA specialized Mini Cooper auto body repair), with aftermarket parts that have to be imported, can be expensive.

Specialized Mini Cooper Repairs and Maintenance

Despite all this, there’s only so much a Mini can handle. Like any other car, state-of-the-art or not, repair and maintenance should be expected. The transmission might need replacing; the steering wheel might stiffen up, requiring urgent care for your power steering. And if you’re driving a manual Mini the clutch cable might start giving way, requiring repairs.
For any and all repairs and maintenance needs, bring your Mini round to Timotors for thorough examinations and servicing. We understand and respect Mini Coopers like none other in Houston, Texas. Let us care for your Mini by offering a cheap, yet high quality mini cooper service repair.
What’s more, if you wish to install fully customized upgrades for your Mini, we happily offer them here at Timotors. We’re well known for our turbo booster upgrades, which can make your Minis fly away on Houston’s highways.
We offer the following services:
Transmission
Engine Problem
R50: “Mk I” Mini One & Cooper (2001–2006)
R52: “Mk I” Mini Convertible (2004–2008)
R53: “Mk I” Mini Cooper S (2001–2006)
R55: “Mk II” Mini Clubman (2007–2014)

TIMotors vs the Dealership

We have the same equipment, facilities and skillset as dealerships do when it comes to repairing cars. The only difference being that they overcharge you.

We strive hard to cut costs wherever we can. This allows us to offer excellent repair and maintenance services, just as well as if not better, that dealerships offer. This is because we strive to be the leading Mini Cooper auto repair shop in Houston, Texas by providing affordable car repair services.

Consider needing a paint job. If you go to the dealership, it’ll easily cost you hundreds of dollars. Maybe even thousands.

Whereas we offer the same high-quality Mini Cooper paint repair by doing a touch up paint for only a fraction of that. And yes, it comes with a color match guarantee.

It’s the same when it comes to needing to take your Mini to the dealer’s body shop. Or to have its engine repaired, where they’re likely to overcharge you for spark plugs.

Why let them overcharge you for your Mini Cooper auto repair Houston, TX? You can easily cut down on unnecessary Mini Cooper repair costs by coming to us instead.

We strive to be an affordable alternative as a Mini Cooper repair shop in Houston, by hiring the best Mini Cooper mechanics in Houston.

Our mechanics all have years of experience with Mini Cooper car repairs. They have all the tools, equipment and support that they need to get the job done. We invest heavily on them being keeping their skills up-to-date to ensure that they do quality work on your European automobile.

I know Maziar and all his staff for many years. These guys are the most knowledgeable, courteous, and honest people in town. I feel bad that I have not recommended them sooner. it has been many years that they are taking care of my Mercedes and BWMs. I could not be happier or more satisfied with their services. my entire family and many friends also share the same experience and opinion.read more

Over the years TEXAS international motors saved me thousands of dollars over dealerships as well as taking care of my cars the first time. There was not a problem they couldn’t solve when the Mercedes dealer could be puzzled at times what the root cause of the problem was. Recommend them for all European cars. Reply: Most of my family do indeed use your shop, Maziar, but this social networking is new to them. They will provide feedback on their good experience with your shop.read more

I take all the Mercedes's to Texas International Motors for service or bodywork. They perform excellent service (Better than a dealer) at a reasonable price. They brought the 06 E320 back to life and keep the 2014 ML350 running at top shape. The friends I have referred to them are very happy with them and me for saving them $.read more

Maziar and Jose was dishonested with me about my quote .. From 3200.. 3500.. to 5900 .. & Charge me 250.00 without consulting with me first.. I was told by Jose 1-2 hrs for diagnostic was free .. and that I would be contacted if it took longer & be quoted a fee ... That never happened... Bottom line.. I got scammed out of 250.00 & then was told to pickup my car... That Maziar didn’t want to do business with me! That’s real customer service right.... If you’re a lady ... I would stay far away from this place!!!!!! - Stop taking Advantage for Women 😡😡😡read more

Took a BMW 750 here to be inspected before I bought it. They were great and very knowledgeable. Told me about the materials the engine block was made of... they kept me from buying a car with a lot of issues even though it looked and ran great. Only charged me $139 for this Pre Purchase Inspection. Before I buy any EURO car, i'm taking it here!read more

Meant to write this review way earlier, like 6 months ago! Have been coming here for the majority of the maintenance on my 2012 Mercedes and have always gotten a much better price than the dealership! Owner has been up front and friendly every time. Usually I'll drop my car off in the morning before work, catch a ride downtown to the office with the shop's driver, then get a ride after work to pick up the car. Have also had a water pump replaced here via aftermarket warranty and that went smoothly. Will be returning in a few weeks for another oil change!read more
