It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 2016 BMW 328i transmission problems could include shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood.

2016 BMW 328i Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your BMW's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a BMW? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 328i’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 328i is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 328i's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
