How often should I service my 2014 BMW 328d xDrive?
You want your BMW 328d xDrive to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 328d xDrive has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 328d xDrive, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2014 BMW 328d xDrive!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by BMW, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 328d xDrive's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2014 BMW 328d xDrive problems in the future.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2014 BMW 328d xDrive for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 328d xDrive. 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.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2014 BMW 328d xDrive? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your BMW 328d xDrive 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 328d xDrive) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your BMW 328d xDrive 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 2014 BMW 328d xDrive 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 2014 328d xDrive. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2014 BMW 328d xDrive? We can help with that, too!
