Overview of Essential BMW 230i xDrive Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 BMW 230i xDrive for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 230i xDrive’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2017 BMW 230i xDrive be ready for a new battery? 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 230i xDrive battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your BMW 230i xDrive could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2017 BMW 230i xDrive running newer, longer. To learn how often BMW recommends you have the oil changed in your 2017 230i xDrive, 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2017 BMW 230i xDrive.

Periodic service to the steering system in your BMW 230i xDrive can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform BMW 230i xDrive suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your BMW 230i xDrive's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine BMW 230i xDrive maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally!
