Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2016 BMW 228i. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your BMW 228i battery, and so can frequent short drives.

Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 228i stranded. Your BMW 228i 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 2016 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 2016 228i.
