Here’s Why 2012 BMW 128i Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your BMW 128i and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 128i could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 128i maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2012 BMW 128i!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, BMW themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 128i running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2012 BMW 128i problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your BMW 128i Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 BMW 128i and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 128i. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2012 BMW 128i? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 128i may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your BMW 128i battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 128i) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your BMW 128i won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2012 BMW 128i engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 128i. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2012 BMW 128i? We can help with that, too!

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your BMW 128i's steering and suspension system.
