What to Know About 2012 BMW 135i Scheduled Maintenance

You want your BMW 135i to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 135i has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 135i, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2012 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2012 BMW 135i problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your BMW 135i

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 BMW 135i 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. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2012 BMW 135i. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your BMW 135i battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 135i stranded. Your BMW 135i 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2012 BMW 135i running newer, longer. To learn how often BMW recommends you have the oil changed in your 2012 135i, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2012 BMW 135i.
