Questions About 2012 BMW 128i’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your BMW's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a BMW? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 128i towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 128i is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my 128i's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your BMW 128i’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your BMW. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
