Here’s Why 2017 BMW 320i Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your BMW 320i to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 320i has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get 320i maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2017 BMW 320i!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by BMW, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 320i perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2017 BMW 320i problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your BMW 320i

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 BMW 320i for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 320i. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2017 BMW 320i. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your BMW 320i battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 320i could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2017 BMW 320i 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 2017 320i. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2017 BMW 320i.

Routine upkeep for your BMW 320i suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your BMW 320i's steering and suspension system.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my BMW 320i? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my BMW 320i to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older BMW 320i engines.
  •  Why are my BMW dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your BMW 320i in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
