When you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care for any service, we’ll automatically do a multi-point Courtesy Check. We do this to get a clear idea of your BMW 328i’s maintenance needs and proactively address potential issues. What happens during a Courtesy Check? To start, one of our technicians will check the battery in your BMW 328i to determine how much charge remains. No one wants to be stranded with a dead or weak battery! After we’ve inspected your BMW 328i’s battery, we’ll visually inspect your windshield wiper blades, lights, filters, fluid levels, belts, hoses, tires, and alignment. After the Courtesy Check, you'll receive a report of your vehicle's condition. Does a Courtesy Check cost anything? Nope. Courtesy Checks are free. Time spent caring for your car is time well spent, indeed!
We perform a Courtesy Check any time you bring your car to a local Firestone Complete Auto Care for service, but you can also request a Complete Vehicle Inspection for your 1996 BMW 328i if you suspect there may be a bigger problem. A Complete Vehicle Inspection is our most comprehensive diagnostic service. During a Complete Vehicle Inspection, we’ll visually check everything that’s on the list for a Courtesy Check. Additionally, we’ll perform a thorough manual inspection of your steering, suspension, brakes, and exhaust system. The goal of this type of inspection is to unearth significant issues that might wreak havoc on your car if left unaddressed. We’re here to help you take care of your BMW 328i and keep it running newer, longer.
Depending on your location, your local Firestone Complete Auto Care may be able to perform emissions tests, state-mandated inspections, or safety tests on your vehicle. Specific requirements for these types of inspections vary by state. If you need this type of inspection, call your store to be sure it’s offered before you take your vehicle in for service.
