2018 BMW 230i Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your BMW? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a BMW 230i? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 230i is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 230i's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your BMW 230i’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your BMW. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
