2016 BMW 320i Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your BMW? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a BMW? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. 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 320i is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my 320i's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2016 320i’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
