Overview of Essential BMW 428i Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2015 BMW 428i and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 428i. 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 2015 BMW 428i. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 428i may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your BMW 428i battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 428i won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2015 BMW 428i's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2015 428i. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2015 BMW 428i.

Maintaining your BMW 428i steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform BMW 428i suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your BMW 428i's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine BMW 428i maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your BMW 428i engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your BMW 428i radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2015 BMW 428i maintenance and repairs.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my BMW 428i? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage.
