The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 128i's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your BMW, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your 128i and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 BMW 128i, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following BMW's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2012 BMW 128i drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your BMW 128i may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your BMW 128i drives.
How much does it cost to fix your 2012 BMW 128i drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
