When you first drove your 2016 BMW 228i xDrive, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 228i xDrive feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2016 BMW 228i xDrive in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.
The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 228i xDrive steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.
Your 2016 BMW 228i xDrive’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 228i xDrive’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn BMW 228i xDrive shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 BMW 228i xDrive suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
