Your Guide to 2015 BMW 228i Scheduled Maintenance

You want your BMW 228i to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 228i has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 228i maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2015 BMW 228i!

BMW knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 228i running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2015 BMW 228i problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your BMW 228i Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2015 BMW 228i 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2015 BMW 228i. In general, car batteries only last 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your BMW 228i battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 228i) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your BMW 228i won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2015 BMW 228i running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2015 228i. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2015 BMW 228i.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my BMW 228i? 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 should I switch my BMW 228i to high mileage oil? If your BMW 228i has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my BMW dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your BMW 228i in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
