2017 BMW 230i xDrive Drivetrain Service

All About 2017 BMW 230i xDrive Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 230i xDrive's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your 230i xDrive and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 2017 BMW 230i xDrive to maintain its performance power. Follow BMW's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are BMW 230i xDrive Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2017 BMW 230i xDrive drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your BMW 230i xDrive may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your BMW 230i xDrive doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2017 BMW 230i xDrive drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
