Questions About 2016 BMW 428i xDrive’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my BMW's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my BMW tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 428i xDrive’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my 428i xDrive's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your BMW 428i xDrive transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
