Here’s Why 2013 BMW 135i Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your BMW 135i, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. 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. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 135i, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2013 BMW 135i maintenance schedule!

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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 135i's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2013 BMW 135i problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your BMW 135i Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2013 BMW 135i and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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 135i. 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 2013 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2013 BMW 135i's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2013 135i. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2013 BMW 135i.

  • When should I have BMW 135i alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my BMW 135i need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your BMW 135i? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can BMW dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your BMW 135i, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
