2012 BMW 328i Drivetrain Service

All About 2012 BMW 328i Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 328i's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your 328i’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 BMW 328i, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow BMW's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

BMW 328i Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2012 BMW 328i drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your BMW 328i may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your BMW 328i.

How much does it cost to fix your 2012 BMW 328i drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
