Here’s Why 2016 BMW 340i Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your BMW 340i to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 340i has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get 340i maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 BMW 340i!

BMW knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 340i's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2016 BMW 340i problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your BMW 340i

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 BMW 340i for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with 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 340i. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2016 BMW 340i? 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 340i battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 340i) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your BMW 340i won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2016 BMW 340i's engine run smoother. To learn how often BMW recommends you have the oil changed in your 2016 340i, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2016 BMW 340i? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your BMW 340i can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate BMW 340i steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your BMW 340i's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended BMW 340i services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too.
