What to Know About 2009 BMW 135i Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your BMW 135i, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 135i could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 135i, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2009 BMW 135i!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by BMW, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 135i perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2009 BMW 135i problems.

Overview of Essential BMW 135i Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2009 BMW 135i to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 135i’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2009 BMW 135i be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 135i may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your BMW 135i battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your BMW 135i could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2009 BMW 135i engine. See BMW's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2009 135i in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 2009 BMW 135i? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your BMW 135i can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide BMW 135i steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your BMW 135i's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine BMW 135i maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your BMW 135i engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your BMW 135i radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2009 BMW 135i maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.
