MINI Services

We have been noticing a lot of oil-related engine failures on MINI Coopers. We recommend that a inexpensive, interim oil change can help save you thousands of dollars in engine repairs in the future. Changing your oil more often than the recommended schedule will help prevent major future problems.

Customer Testimonials - MINI

We have a 2003 MINI Cooper S. Great car, but like all cars, needs maintenance now-and-then. We have taken it here-and-there and gotten from miserable to fine service until we went to Holland. WOW! Now we have found ASTOUNDING service! They performed a quick diagnosis of an interior door latch problem, fixed it, and then proceeded to a sunroof problem that we had been told would cost us $3,500.00 at a certain dealer's maintenance shop. Well, Holland inspected, straightened a bent rod/arm in the unit, lubricated it and sent us off with NO CHARGE for that sunroof repair (whew!) and a very small repair cost for the door. From now, on, we will take our car ONLY to Holland Care Care in San Carlos. AND, a great service manager (a principal in the company) in Mark Schwartz! We most HIGHLY recommend Mark and Holland Care Service for all of your MINI's repairs. You won't find better!


Very fair price, a quick turn-around, plus David was fantastically honest and nice, and, the location is convenient to public transit.  We are ditching the MINI dealership shop for good now that we found this place!!


I needed new brake pads for the mini. I didn't want to pay the ridiculous prices the dealer charges, so I used trusty ol' Yelp to find the perfect place. Mine was a fairly simple procedure and I left a very satisfied customer. Dropped off the car in the morning, got a call a few hours later describing what needed to be done, I authorized the necessary services, and picked up the car the same day at 5p. They were courteous and professional throughout. I definitely plan on coming back when my Mini is due for its maintenance service.
