Here’s Why 2019 BMW 230i Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your BMW 230i to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 230i. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 230i maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2019 BMW 230i!

BMW knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 230i's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2019 BMW 230i problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your BMW 230i Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2019 BMW 230i and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check.

Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 230i's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2019 BMW 230i? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 230i may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your BMW 230i battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your BMW 230i could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2019 BMW 230i running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2019 230i. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2019 BMW 230i? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your BMW 230i can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform BMW 230i suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your BMW 230i's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine BMW 230i maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your BMW 230i engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my BMW 230i? Check your car for pothole damage!
