The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by BMW, your vehicle manufacturer.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your BMW 328xi

Bring your 2008 BMW 328xi to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 328xi. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2008 BMW 328xi. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your BMW 328xi battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your BMW 328xi won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2008 BMW 328xi's engine run smoother.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my BMW 328xi? You know your BMW 328xi better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.
