2016 BMW 328d xDrive Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2016 BMW 328d xDrive Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2016 BMW 328d xDrive, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 328d xDrive bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2016 BMW 328d xDrive in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 328d xDrive steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

BMW 328d xDrive Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2016 BMW 328d xDrive suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 328d xDrive’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn BMW 328d xDrive shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 BMW 328d xDrive suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2016 328d xDrive Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 328d xDrive's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my BMW 328d xDrive? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way BMW intended.
  • When does BMW 328d xDrive power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per BMW's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
