When you first bought your 2018 BMW 230i xDrive, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 230i xDrive jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2018 BMW 230i xDrive in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.
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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 230i xDrive suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your BMW 230i xDrive’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.
Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 BMW 230i xDrive’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2018 BMW 230i xDrive shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your BMW 230i xDrive shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 BMW 230i xDrive’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
