What to Know About 2018 BMW 320i Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your BMW 320i, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 320i. 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 320i maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2018 BMW 320i!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 320i running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2018 BMW 320i problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your BMW 320i Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2018 BMW 320i to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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 2018 BMW 320i. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your BMW 320i battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 320i) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your BMW 320i won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 BMW 320i engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2018 320i. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2018 BMW 320i? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your BMW 320i steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform BMW 320i suspension and steering services. 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.

If you skip recommended BMW 320i services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire BMW 320i cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new BMW 320i radiator? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2018 BMW 320i maintenance and repairs.
