2018 BMW 230i xDrive Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2018 BMW 230i xDrive

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 a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2018 BMW 230i xDrive, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to BMW's recommendations.
