2016 BMW 328i Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2016 BMW 328i

Your 328i drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your BMW, from back to front. It’s one of your 328i’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2016 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

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2016 BMW 328i drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your 328i might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. 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 2016 BMW 328i drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
