When you first bought your 2020 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. Perhaps your 230i xDrive feels bouncy, leans 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 2020 BMW 230i xDrive in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.
The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, 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 explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your BMW 230i xDrive suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2020 BMW 230i xDrive suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 230i xDrive’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your BMW 230i xDrive shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 230i xDrive’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
