2012 BMW 328i Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your BMW's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my BMW tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your 328i towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my 328i transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your BMW 328i’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your BMW. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
