What is the maintenance schedule for the 2014 BMW 328d?

Your Guide to 2014 BMW 328d Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your BMW 328d and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 328d. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 328d, 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!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by BMW, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 328d running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2014 BMW 328d problems in the future.

Overview of Essential BMW 328d Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2014 BMW 328d 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 328d. 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? 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your BMW 328d battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 328d won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2014 BMW 328d 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. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2014 BMW 328d.

Routine upkeep for your BMW 328d suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate BMW 328d steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your BMW 328d's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine BMW 328d maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your BMW 328d engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your BMW 328d? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2014 BMW 328d maintenance and repairs.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2014 BMW 328d. Get answers to common BMW 328d maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my BMW 328d? You know your BMW 328d better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my BMW 328d to high mileage oil? If your BMW 328d has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can BMW dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your BMW 328d 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.
