Essential Maintenance to Keep Your BMW 428i xDrive Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2014 BMW 428i xDrive and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 428i xDrive’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2014 BMW 428i xDrive be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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 428i xDrive battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 428i xDrive) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your BMW 428i xDrive won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
