Is It Time For 2012 BMW 328i xDrive Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2012 BMW 328i 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 328i xDrive jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2012 BMW 328i xDrive in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your BMW 328i xDrive suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

BMW 328i xDrive Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2012 BMW 328i xDrive’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2012 BMW 328i xDrive shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn BMW 328i xDrive shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 328i xDrive’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

2012 328i xDrive Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my BMW's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my BMW 328i 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my BMW 328i xDrive power steering fluid checked? 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 follow BMW service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
