Your 230i’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your BMW, from back to front. It’s one of your 230i’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2017 BMW 230i, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow BMW's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
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 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your BMW could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your BMW 230i doesn’t drive like it used to.
How much does it cost to fix your 2017 BMW 230i drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
