2018 BMW 440i xDrive Gran Coupe Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2018 BMW 440i xDrive Gran Coupe Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2018 BMW 440i xDrive Gran Coupe, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 440i xDrive Gran Coupe bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2018 BMW 440i xDrive Gran Coupe in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 440i xDrive Gran Coupe suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your BMW 440i xDrive Gran Coupe’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 440i xDrive Gran Coupe

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 BMW 440i xDrive Gran Coupe’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 440i xDrive Gran Coupe’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn BMW 440i xDrive Gran Coupe shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 BMW 440i xDrive Gran Coupe’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2018 440i xDrive Gran Coupe Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my BMW's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my BMW 440i xDrive Gran Coupe? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way BMW intended.
  • When should I have my BMW 440i xDrive Gran Coupe power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 440i xDrive Gran Coupe’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow BMW service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
